So one of the first live videos have materialized online from Nepal’s very Nepal Deathfest 2016 that was held this past weekend. The video comes from Nepalese sludge metal band Childwife.
When asked what their experience was like at this year’s event, they responded:
“NDF2016 really was something else. First off, we played a lot better than we thought we would hahaha. The reaction too was something we weren’t expecting. There was a bunch of young kids who had come all the way from Dharan (which is quite a while away) who made our set all the more special. And then the day ended with Sete Star Sept from Japan who were CRAZY!!”
In terms of impact on the nepalese scene from an event like this, what are your thoughts and maybe overall hopes of a band that was able to participate in something like this?
“Well, this was only our second show so we got to take our sound to a bigger audience. We’re pretty much the only band in Nepal playing sludge right now, so we stood out as well, I suppose. Playing NDF was an honour for sure.”
