Russian Sojourn #2 – Black & White

An Intoxicating Poll was conducted in the previous Russian Sojourn series, and the results till now make it clear that there are no teetotallers (or, almost negligible) visiting this place. That is a different level of relief, and I am unable to express the same here. Some Tuborg might come to the rescue.

Wish I knew about the Russian metal scene a little more than I do right now so I could write something. As of now not much has been spotted by skilled cameraman Gaurav out there. But I will make sure he will bump into something metal in Russia. And why am I hellbent – Burzum’s official site has been made in only two languages, English and Russian. Now that is enough reason to respect Russia, no?

What you see below is exactly how Russia is at the moment. Not that it is a cause of concern but I wonder who cleaned the other half of the car?

Expect some more stuff coming your way all the way from Russia. Lets hope we get some controversial pictures being clicked. But what remains a question is what exactly or how much exactly makes something controversial. I don’t know.

…and I will not be Resurrected

Tonight, all metalheads in Bombay will head to Marimba Lounge, or let me put say this way. Tonight all sensible metalheads will head there as

resurrection IX

Resurrection IX is going to have its final gig and this is not just another gig, but one where Exhumation is going to play some serious brutal death. And you do not see them playing at every other gig.

As is clear from the post name, I will not be a part of this metal celebration. There are a lot of reasons for which I would have wanted to be present but then I am not going to be resurrected anyways. A lot of shit is happening with me post my decision of moving to Chennai so I could continue earning my bread and liquor.

Resurrection has always been something I never missed. All the previous ones happened when I was in and around Bombay. But then there are many things that happen for the first time in life and that is exactly what has taken place. The first resurrection that I attended was the fourth edition when DR had released their debut album.And no I did not review it. Sharing the stage with them were Exhumation, Myndsnare and Kryptos (3-piece one). That gig seriously kicked ass as it was a different time altogether for metal in Bombay.

my first resurrection - IV

But tonight is also going to kick ass as this is yet again a different time for the Bombay metal scene. All the 3 bands for tonight – DR, Exhumation and Bhayanak Maut – are tight live acts.

One interesting thing to watch out for tonight would be P-man or Rohit Pereira playing bass for Exhumation. And even though I know I am going to really miss Exhumation‘s performance, there is a little something else too that I am going to miss – free booze. A couple of days back my friend and Exhumation vocalist Aditya Mehta held a contest on his blog asking everyone to post about the new bass player for Exhumation at the resurrection gig and I for once knew the answer as I was told by Aditya himself. Posted it for fun, only to realise that I was entitled to unlimited supply of any beer I want on this very night ! But then I just got to know that all the free booze is going to pass through my other friend Aditya Rao‘s humongous tummy. Wonder how he is preparing himself for this one.

Now I needed some reason to convince myself for the fact that I am missing this gig. So guess what I told myself – the gig is not happening at Razz nor the regular Marine Center, so its ok. Well that was just a passing thought. The ones making it tonight, a weekday could not have been better.
