Interview With Antim Grahan(Nepal)

AntimGrahanInterview

IMR: Hello Parash! Firstly, I would like to thank you on behalf of Team IMR for the interview with IndianMusicRevolution. As you guys would be new to our readers, can you describe the origins, inception & history of ANTIM GRAHAN from the beginning till today?
Antim Grahan(Parash):
Hey Pravin, thanks for the opportunity and it is our honor to be presented in IMR.
We started out as a usual bunch of guys during the school days with no prior concern of becoming a serious metal band. We just started playing because it was fun. But after fooling around for a couple of months with all the noise making, and getting the right member in with similar choices in the music, we started ANTIM GRAHAN. We started out as a relatively thrash influenced melodic metal with the heavy essence of Black Metal band and we took out an album soon after FOREVER WINTER. And that album pretty much set up the tone for our path in future. We knew that we had found something, which we had always wanted.  Although now the genre that we played before has shifted a bit now and we play more of Brutal Death Metal/Grind Core/Black Metal for our new stuffs. We have released 4 albums till date and going to the studios in mid June. The new stuff will be the heaviest metal release ever in Nepal.

Interview With Funeral in Heaven(Sri Lanka)

  • Published in Interviews

FuneralInHeavenInterview

IMR: Hails FUNERAL IN HEAVEN! Let us begin with a discussion of how the band was originally incepted and is there any key evolutions in the band since the early days? Also, you guys seem to be more influenced by Sri Lankan traditional and historical background then why is the band named in English instead of your mother-tongue?
FIH:
Ayubo Pravin! FUNERAL IN HEAVEN was initiated back in 2003 by me and a few other colleagues who at that time shared an interest towards morbid and esoteric material. This included an interest towards the music genre Black Metal, at its purest form. Yes, there have been some key evolutions in the band’s history since the day it was conceived as in the early days, finding members who had musical and technological knowledge as we do now, was almost impossible. The evolution factor also reflects on the fact that we encourage experimentation within the unit by not sticking to one formula. The band name reflects the survival situation here in Sri Lanka compared to what it was or might have been as written in our historical chronicles. If we would’ve found a better way to express that we are in fact, witnessing a funeral, in heaven, in our own mother tongue, we would definitely have. So we just resorted to naming the project as mentioned above.

Metal Army

Metal Army
Metal means power, anger, rage and rebellion. Metal means washing your pains away. Metal is hatred. Metal is divine. Metal is Godliness. Metal was always an anthem of the underground. But now as we turn these pages of years the trend seems to have changed. It is still the music for "Weird" people, but the term "weird" has a bit of a different meaning. I say this watching all those Black-T wearing kids that flock every other Metal show in town. Which makes me say that it’s not so “Underground” anymore? Is it? Don’t we all now like to flaunt our favourite band T-Shirts now?
