Compilation review : Indiean Volume II (2011)

Three years of associations with the people from the music fraternity, selflessly writing and promoting all that is underground and more than two years of friendship with me. This is all it took Santhosh Lobo (owner, IndianRockMp3) to make a family away from his own. When the site completed two years there came Indiean Volume one, so on account of his website turning three we have part two of the compilation.

The compilation contains nine tracks, touches upon as much as seven genres and sub-genres combined together. Not something that happens all the time. Well, I think it’s a wonderful idea to join acts from across the country and merge them on a single playlist. And, then give it out for free download just to make sure everyone listens to it. You can get it here.

1. As Soon As it is Over by Barefaced Liar – This varied band from Delhi is taking giant steps towards acceptance on an altogether different level. This track As Soon As It Is Over is kind enough to touch you, but there are slippages which go unnoticed.

2. Jihad by Motherjane – This track somehow makes me go, ‘dude, I really love old-Motherjane man‘. Those first two albums by this above par band traveled through my senses, very slowly. Jihad, for that matter, did not live up to my expectations.

3. Polymorphic Infection by Amogh Symphony – Bands make music, but Amogh Symphony adds several dimensions to their songs. State of the art production with the most intricate musical values imbibed together make up tracks from this band. Polymorphic Infection is from their second album, The Quantum Hack Code.

4. Visionary by Goddess Gagged – Progressive Post-Hardcore is what Bombay-based Goddess Gagged has been committed to. But, before they got to this genre there was something else they played which too was welcomed with arms wide open. A band to watch out for with a debut album and a music video scheduled.

5. Need for Sleep by Noiseware – Holy mother of all! Noiseware is loud and they have every reason to feel proud. Their jam laboratory would be equipped with every complexity there is and they aren’t wrong when they call their music experimental metal. This is what avant garde stuff is made of!

6. De Engineer by Eccentric Pendulum – I have always maintained that if a band can write a track like Cut Through the Light, they are capable of everything. Well almost. De Engineer is not one of the best ones by the band but it has its signature Pendulum moments.

7. Dear <Name> by Bhayanak MautMetastasis was a dangerous Ep that was give out by Bhayanak Maut for free, because it was so brutal, so metal that it’ll chase you till you accept your defeat. They are established, they know what they are doing, so only good things coming our way now. I had fun penning down my thoughts about Metastasis.

8. All That Is by Exhumation – Whether it is writing riffs that nobody else around can, or playing death metal with vigor, Exhumation has been doing the right things for eight years. Consider This was a laid back effort, yet had death metal content with accuracy and speed.

Barefaced Liar, Delhi

9. Xenophobe by Undying Inc – Delhi-based metallers have their own story to tell, are merciless when it comes to making the speakers feel attacked and the listeners feel harassed. All for a good cause, and Undying Inc bless you with a lot of metal. If you think this is exactly what you look for in your metal then they have a full-length that was out this year, go get it.

The compilation even has an album art for the front and back cover, and I think I have a thing for this art. It is apt, and if you look closely, it is detailed too. Done by Akhila Shankar who handles most of the things at IRMP3 now.

Here’s wishing the entire crew of IRMP3 (which includes me, but I have no hand in this compilation) the very best of everything. After all, trolling got a new meaning through this website. Jests aside, even I write and doing this apart from the normal shit you do is tough. Balancing is one of the things we humans are definitely bad at, and if IRMP3 has been doing this for three years and still continues doing it then there is a better tomorrow for the ‘scene’.

Peace Sells… But Who’s Selling?

– by Itihas Shetty

Ok. So, Mohammed Ajmal Kasab is still alive. You do not need time to remember him, do you ?

Imagine a group of motherfuckers fully armed to exterminate, with a foolproof plan in place entering a city that is Bombay, and opening fire as if Ram Gopal Varma is capturing them for his next. Courageous bastards I say. Then why shouldn’t a nation that might sink anytime due to excessive unprotected sex atleast do the bare minimum needful of hanging that one son-of-a-bitch who did not concentrate on his training where he was taught to just kill – including himself. It was only unfortunate for him that he was caught but then came the funny side, democratic nation India showed that there is indeed only one nation of its kind – Kasab gets to defend himself through an Indian lawyer. Kick in the balls. ouch ! Hang on – but defend what ?

And Kasab follows this joke with his demands. He wants an urdu version of the chargesheet, and a flavoured toothpaste. Can we have a telecast of two hot iron rods shoved back-to-back up his jihadi ass. live !

kasab, who?

You want more ? – Very recently he denied his role in the attacks. Ok done laughing ? Yeah, he says its not him in the picture which the whole nation saw. Now this time I do not blame him. He is just playing along. Why shouldn’t he ? – I call it human nature.

The point here is India cannot at any cost stop such an attack next time around but atleast can send out a message for all the mess. Need lessons in quick justice ? – Get the common man who witnessed all that on the judging panel or even better get those who lost someone in the attacks. Lawmakers it seems ! Comeon you losers did you forget those scenes on television where hapless people were running helter-skelter trying to avoid some bullets to pierce through their innocent bodies ? And what about the countless martyrs. Fuck.

People behind this case need not be told to forget about humane behavior here. To ensure that another Kasab does not dare to think on the same lines, the standard Indian junk laws stating – the prosecution has to prove the case, all the accused should be given legal representation – need to be buried. What can be a bigger exception than this. Extort the required information and hang. I need not get into what Kasab deserves but the nation deserves atleast this much. Put on your evil caps. Operation black eyed peace !

And now that Obama has won Nobel Prize for peace, I should make it in the Economics category this year. What ?
