It’s so interesting to watch a band that we’ve been writing about since 2017 when they were just a bunch of dudes releasing hilarious metal parody videos: https://uniteasia.org/indias-heaviest-metal-band-releases-heaviest-song-2017-angry-santa-metal/ to become such a massive band with insane success.
Check out Indian metal band Bloodywood on their 90-minute documentary charting their rise called Rag Against the Machine. So worth your time…the band even admits that they got invited to play Wacken Open Air BEFORE they had ever played a show – all because of their online success.
If you haven’t heard of the band:
“Bloodywood is a Metal band from India known for pioneering a sound that seamlessly fuses Indian Folk instruments with Metal to devastating effect. Expect to hear the percussive power of the mighty Dhol, the melancholic Flute, the single-stringed Tumbi, and several other uncommon yet distinctively characteristic sounds from India. A combination of thunderous Hindi/Punjabi Choruses and meaningful yet unforgiving Rap verses along with the ethnic instrumentation makes Bloodywood a truly unique experience.”
The band has dropped the second batch of merch that was sold out in hours – if you’re into what you hear and want to support go grab some threads HERE.
