Is finally available the RISING SILENCE debut ep.
Their sound is strongly defined by the musical influences of each of its members and by the will to mix as more as possible genres up. The result is a powerful and balanced mix of modern and melodic elements between classic prog and hard-hitting sound.
Listening to Rising Silence immediately calls to mind the guitaring of such bands as Megadeth and Metallica as well as classic hard rock riffing, all of this spiced up with prog-flavoured keyboards and a female voice that recalls Lacuna Coil's style and gives melody a strong leading role.

Stay tuned on their official web pages:

Band: “BRINGING PEOPLE TOGETHER” and evoking them to reawaken through music and not just
Constraining it into the realms of “mere entertainment”, apprehensive about the fact of being “labeled”,
Nevertheless “The Hobos” are a progressive/ experimental act”.
The Band, Inspired by Pink Floyd, Deep Purple, Dream Theater, The Doors, etc. are working on originals, Experimenting by infusing raga and a number of Indian sounds in some of their songs aiming to expand. Minds of the audience, induce hedonism, at being their shaman for musical explorations and further.  The band has been crowned as winners many a times, and not only are they crowned winners but also didn't
Forget to take the prize for best drummer, guitarist and vocalist along with winning credible audience
Appreciation and repute for their original scores and high energy live gigs.

On the 1st of July 2014 the Kolkata based rock band THE HOBOS launched their self titled album. First track is Escape, which is a laid back song with melodious piano works. It is about a disconnect from real world and about being submerged instead in a surreal one. followed by track Honour which is Patriotic in the band’s own way, Honour is dedicated to those who fight for us at the borders. It is a hard grunge number with high voltage drums. At six minutes and 10 seconds it is the longest song in the album
Endless trauma is a song which projects slow death due to depression and desperation. Based on an augmented scale, it is  set to complex counts of seven and six. Broken home are one of the softer numbers in the album, it is about the agony of children from dysfunctional families. The notes on the keyboards are mellifluous and the lead guitar is played with maximum delay. Kurukshetra is about the band’s tribute to the epic battle, Kurukshetra is about the wars in our lives. It being begins with the sanskrit sloka “Yada yada hi dharmasya”, that was heard before the battle in The Mahabharata. Kurukshetra is based on a Hindustani classical raga Bhairav and comes to life with Indian instruments like the flute and harmonium. The song Lust is about the emotion that instills a drive in us to do things we otherwise wouldn't have. This song is about insatiable greed for more. It enters with the bass guitar and is followed up by hard-hitting drums and guitar riffs. The composition has huge vocal modulations with the voice ranging from extreme highs and dropping down to almost a whisper. The song Ballas before butchery tells you about how establishment shuts the voice of dissent. This roller coaster of a song has its soft ballad like bits and then fades into butchery. It’s got heavy drumming and guitar riffs, church organs and an opera like build up before fading in to a soft signoff.
Trance of Mahakal  is the the heaviest song of the album which is about the madness of, and in praise of, lord Shiva. It’s got heavy drums and guitar riffs juxtaposed with soft and hard vocals. The song is based on a rage Puriya Dhanashree and uses Indian instruments like Tanpura, Santoor, Sitar and Dugdugi(damru), which is said to be Shiva’s own instrument.

NEWS : Bangalore Open Air 2014 lineup revealed; Destruction, Rotting Christ headlining acts


Well, we all knew this was coming, it appears Bangalore Open Air is ready to return with full strength in 2014, and the dates have been set to September 13th at CounterCulture.

The festival's first headliner is Destruction, claimed it's role as one of the most interesting band  of the Teutonic thrash metal scene. Second headliner revealed is Greek extreme metal band Rotting Christ, They were responsible for creating what is known as the "classic" Greek black metal, sound which can be heard in other bands such as Varathron and Thou Art Lord. Italy's brutal death metal band Cadaver Mutilator is on the supporting act. The Down Troddence, Threinody and Armament are the local acts for this edition of BOA.

The local guests of the event will surely keep the level high: The six piece folk-thrash metal band from KannurThe Down Troddence (TDT) are all pumped up after grabbing all eight top Rolling Stone Metal Awards earlier this year in Mumbai. This band gives raw thrashy 80s feel, with south Indian influences, making this band very much loving for old-school thrash fans. Hailing from the unholy city of Bangalore, Threinody is one band everyone should be looking forward to. Formed in 1996 this band, known for their hard hitting riffs , screaming vocals, reminds of the golden era of 80”s thrash which these guys still carry on with Utmost power and dedication. Armament is a four-piece old school thrash metal band from Kolkata that upholds the early European thrash sound. They derives inspiration from bands like Sepultura, Sodom, Venom Kreator and Slayer.

This was the first time in Indian history we saw such a campaign and an idea to crowd-fund Rs 44 lakh for this year's festival. Earlier there were rumors going around that Norwegian black metaller Mayhem might play for this edition of BOA as they expressed their willingness to play. Later Steven Wilson (From Porcupine tree) name was also added to this tally, but due to low crowdfunding which ended up into just  4.3 lakh rupees of sum amount collection. The organisers started working out for some alternative line-up.

In the earlier editions of Bangalore Open Air, city witnessed some major international bands such as Iced Earth, Kreator, Dark Tranquility and Animal as Leaders. Though this time, Salman told to nh7.in, “The venue will be smaller. It won’t be the same thing as last year,”. Well, that doesn't mean that it won't be joyful as previous one's. In fact, you can hope something new and better this time.

Now,it remains to be seen exactly how the crowd responds to the idea of an indoor venue. We do expect the sound, setup etc. all to surpass all expectations.
Early bird tickets are available at Rs. 2000/- Till the 12th Of August .
Tickets at Rs. 2500/- from 13th August till festival date.
