      Sweetheart, “Aur” is not the only band in the world, y’know. :P

      Bolshe, do u have any audio files for these groups ? Any links where you can listen to them ? Might fly to khi if it is worth it. I deff want to see the metal scene live in my city. And will they play there own material our covers ?

    4. JAY (unregistered) on August 4th, 2007 @ 8:51 pm

      * Or covers

    5. Bolshevik (unregistered) on August 4th, 2007 @ 8:52 pm

      Yaar they play a mix or originals and covers. Don’t know what the playlist will be this time around. I don’t have any recordings on me, but will look around for them — will upload ’em and provide the links here if I find any.

      Bolshevik: I know honey but trust me, I know some of these guys and they are too intimidated! As in “chapo bands”. There should be some creativity! Playing good is not the only thing, being creative surely is :D

    9. Bolshevik (unregistered) on August 4th, 2007 @ 9:56 pm

      I’ve heard them playing — the covers as well as the originals — and I quite liked their stuff. In fact, a friend and I covered Sacrament’s gig for DT last July. ‘s all a matter of opinion, I guess. : )

    10. zee (unregistered) on August 4th, 2007 @ 10:42 pm

      Yup, difference in opinion. I like bands that are more creative and less influenced. That’s all.

      Mr. Bolshevik

      have you ever heard;

      kawwa hans ki chal chala aUR apni bhee bhool gaya.

      you may not heard that as you sounds pretty psuedo.

      you and the band lacks originality, botth of you sux.
      there had been many good pop & rock stars in the country & you know, they were original.

      Further they should give 200 Rs. to anyone who turns up to see their so called performance.

      many thx & regards,

      My own band has played a gig with Sacrament, as well as Moth. Playing a gig organized by Sacrament was one of the worse musical experiences I’ve had. Cant say much good about the band themselves either.
      Though i like death metal, and try to support the underground music scene, I really couldnt make much out of Sacrament’s set that time. Dont know about the other bands, but for me Sacraments a no-no.

      See Bolsh! That’s what I meant. Look what all these people are saying! They are right on the money!

    15. Imran (unregistered) on August 6th, 2007 @ 9:55 am

      To the people making hackneyed and trite comments (like “hans ke chal” et al) …. grow up and try new things! THE WORLD HAS CHANGED .. and so should you (if you like ofcourse :). Then again maybe living in the 14th Century is YOUR destiny.

      For all those opposing change just for the sake of opposing … what a pessimistic view of life you guys have! Be open to chnage, new possibilities, a fresh outtake on things … LIFE IS AN ADVENTURE! :)

      I dont particularly like metal, but might giv it a try!

    16. NED (unregistered) on August 6th, 2007 @ 11:22 pm

      “Soul Vomit” would probably be translated as “Rooh ki Ulti”. Is this a proper name? These are all “Wanna bees”, “music stealers”, and “copy caters”. They don’t have any identity of their own and people who listen to them are as fake and phony as the bands. I will never ever listen to rock music by these bands just as I will never listen to a Ghazal sang by Bon Jovi or other real rock stars.
      Please get real and don’t support these lost rich kids who have nothing better to do….

    17. bika (unregistered) on August 7th, 2007 @ 10:32 pm

      omg, what fuss! it’s just music guys. there’s a lot you’d like that others won’t appreciate. as i see it, these ‘lost rich kids’ are doing something positive (creative) with their time instead of dissing people on forums. though yeah, i have never understood the need for metal bands to have such khatarnaak names. oh well. life’s all about variety!

      @JAY, heres a link to a song named “Anomaly” made by Communal Grave

    19. JAY (unregistered) on August 8th, 2007 @ 11:55 am

      Thankx Metal. Will check it out. Send reviews for tonight’s gig as well !!!

    20. Imran (unregistered) on August 12th, 2007 @ 10:04 am

      you wrote, “I will never (ever) listen …”

      Then DON’T my friend.
      But let other people have a CHOICE … which is their right.

      Or are ya give (only YOURSELF) the RIGHT to not listen??? Life is a 2-way street, isn’t it? Others have a RIGHT too.
