– Itihas Shetty.
It is quite likely that you must have heard the name Lamb Of God even if you do not know that a genre called metal exists. When I first heard the news, like anyone else I found this to be just another one of those rumors. But yesterday when I visited the official site of Lamb Of God I saw it right there. Everything happened so quickly that there was no need for me to bang my knuckles on the wall to make myself believe this. The day everyone had been waiting for is in sight now. The day when one of the loudest and most well-known metal bands would be all set to break you does not seem far. My understanding tells me that every metalhead – commercial or non-commercial, underground or just on the ground, black or white – has heard this band atleast once and that is what made me carefully relate them to the word famous.
With some more time to kill, I am sure the entire nation and a couple of neighboring ones are going to tilt the globe in Bangalore’s direction on this day. I foresee this to be the biggest gathering in the country. All set to face the wrath, as the palace
ground burns. Absolutely nothing – not even the fake messiah – can come between me and this day, nothing can ruin this. The organizers of this event Overture India did this at the right time after the nation’s hungry metalheads were denied their annual doze of live metal earlier this year. The Summer Storm Festival 2010 organizers will see the result of this benevolence when the countless blessings will help their next seven generations die happily.
With each passing day, something that scares me is the thought that after awaiting so much for the fifteenth of May what is it that I would look forward to from the very next day. A sudden passage from everything to nothing would be draining. Well, fuck that for now. Its uncommon to have a devil in god’s country, so fulfill all your wishes before this day because now you’ve
truly got something to die for!
