The Demonic Chef

The demonic fixation did not continue this time, with Sahil Makhija (vocalist, guitarist – Demonic Resurrection) naming his maiden cookery venture Headbanger’s Kitchen. Inspiring an entire generation of metal heads wasn’t enough that now he has set out to show them what he can cook up with his culinary skills.

Targeting only the interested audience, Headbanger’s Kitchen is an online show where Sahil prepares some really gorgeous dishes that are not just irresistible but have metal scribbled all over them. With names like One wing chicken picata, Bhayanak Bacon bomb and cheesy potato, Djentleman’s Roast Chicken with Gravy he gets down metal artists for an informal discussion about everything under the sun and of course to taste his preparations. In the past this show has seen he likes of Dubai-based Nervecell, Nile-drummer George Kollias and members of Indian bands Scribe, Bhayanak Maut, Amogh Symphony and Skyharbor.

With all this is in the forefront, we have Srinivas Sunderrajan (bassist, Scribe) handling everything behind the camera. Srinivas is an independent film maker with his own production house that he calls Enter Guerilla Productions. Get in touch with them here.

For the rest of us who are too lazy to try this stuff at home, we get to gorge all this at Headbanger’s Kitchen stalls. I happened to be present at one such event at B69, Andheri and what I had tasted was bloody good. Below I’m seen holding a half eaten blood red chicken burger and the unstoppable Sahil Makhija who only accepts cash. Makes sense. Since it was a Slayer tribute night the other two dishes also went by the names bacon ensemble and reign in beef.

But I could not get myself to avoid the term demonic from the title because I don’t like to leave my articles incomplete, and this one sure would be incomplete without the mention.

Check out all the webisodes at Headbanger’s Kitchen‘s youtube channel here. And you can keep yourself updated about what Sahil is upto in his kitchen by visiting the official site here or by joining the facebook page here.  So, save up and place your orders. You can’t expect everything in the Indian metal scene to be available for free. Happy eating!
