Each week in "Unearthing the Metal Underground," we'll be putting a few quality underground bands in the spotlight in an attempt to get the word out about them. This week I am exploring the Indian metal scene, introducing three bands spanning various metal sub-genres.
Although most foreigners are initially exposed to all the Bollywood hype of the second most populous country in the world, behind the rich and somewhat conservative culture and monolithic economy traits lies a massive subculture striving to make an identity of their own for the sole purpose of making their mark on the world of heavy metal. The scene is of course and without a doubt considered immense, as opposed to where I hail from (Sri Lanka), considering the fact that some of the biggest names in heavy metal have been stopping in India for a gig or tour for the past few years. And not forgetting the amount of record/distribution labels and promoters that strive to thrust the scene forward, India will certainly, in time to come, be held responsible for making a unique mark of their own in the history of one of the world’s most largest and evolved sub cultures.
To start off with today’s unearthing, I chose a technical death metal outfit which goes by the name of Amogh Symphony, who’ve been stirring up the scene in Mumbai as of late with the release of their debut album, “Abolishing the Obsolete System.” The brain-child of solo musician Vishal J. Singh, the band was conceived in 2003 and now has two commendable releases under their belt.

Indian Label, Demonstealer Records, home to a few of the best the country has to offer, such as Demonic Ressurection, Workshop, Myndsnare and Exhumation, will be releasing Behemoth's latest opus, "Evangelion" in India.
Label Owner Shahil Makhija commented; "Its a great honour for me to release the Behemoth album in India, they are one of my favourite bands to listen to. When their management approached me I took a risk and said yes because as a metal lover it sucks that you don't get original releases and most kids download new albums. This way the album is available and its got a little some extra that makes you want to buy it.
Demonstealer Records is basically India's only label dedicated to extreme metal and we've been around since 2005 officially. We released many local bands and artists over the years and even set up a fairly good international CD distro and sell lots of underground bands.
The release of Evangelion in India is a big step for us and its basically testing the waters to see if its feasible to regularly release such great bands in India so metal heads here have access to original CDs and merchandise."
