Gangtok, Nov. 23
Nothing could stop the metal heads from head banging in the Sikkim Music Fest- 2010. Despite unfavorable weather condition and power interruptions, the bands managed to gather much crowd to sway with their music. Some attended the fest just to see Sabin Rai, while some were there to witness Arsames performing and some just to pass their evening with some heavy music. Whatever or whoever the reason, it seemed like everybody enjoyed themselves.
The show kick started with a solo by Kusang (guitarist, Grungy Morphins). Dark Murder Scheme from Darjeeling set the metal mood with few of their originals and tracks from the band Lamb of God. The crowd went soaring with the letters “DMS”. Still Waters the all time favourite local band also performed few of their originals making the crowd tap their feet with their happy go lucky tracks. Sabin Rai set the stage on fire with his new ‘avataar’ and the remixes of his own originals. Lucid Recess the much famous band from Guwahati won many hearts with their music and X- Mantra from Nepal made the crowd go head bang with their crazy compositions.
The final performance by Arsames, the ancient death metal band from Iran, who has become talk of the town much lately, proved to be better than expected and left the crowd wanting for more.
