Metalhead Spotted: Greetings from Metalhead Spotted! How have you guys been lately?
Anarchy: Hello there! Greetings from Anarchy. We have been good and hope you're doing fine too.

Anarchy: Our Guitarist Ameet "Teema" Kulkarni was trying to form Anarchy since April 2012. He met Tabish(vocalist) through some common friends and after a few talks around Dec 2012 they decided to do.something about forming a band. Serious talks happened around Feb-March 2013 and along with Aashish Kulkarni(ex-drummer for Gaia's Throne, Anarchy) and Neeraj Diwan (also bassist for Gaia's Throne) jams started around may 2013 and soon Ashish Gogte (rhythm guitarist) joined for a brief period. Aashish Kulkarni shifted to Mumbai and Ashish Gogte to Ahmedabad and we found brilliant replacements in
Harshvardhan Gore (drums) and Aditya Swaminathan (rhythm guitars) in Sept 2013 which completed Anarchy's final lineup.

Metalhead Spotted: Who have been your main influences? What inspires you to keep going on?

Anarchy: Thank you. We think we were pretty good at December
Demolition. We played a short 15 min, set but the response from the crowd was amazing inspite of the bad sound. It was really great to see mosh pits and people headbanging to all the songs you play at your 1st gig. We had an amazing time on stage. We.enjoyed sharing the stage. With our friends from the scene. Also,We shared the stage with a big band like Albatross on our 1st gig and this time it will be Noiseware so everybody in the Anarchy camp is really stoked and excited to go back on stage and play again.
