Gig Update: Trendslaughter Fest IV

1176322_10153597933880262_320061607_n

4th Edition of Bangalore’s prominent Extreme Metal Fest, “Trendslaughter Fest (TSF)” is scheduled to be held on the first day of February, 2014. Trendslaughter Fest has been acknowledged superiorly within the Extreme Metal scene of India and it has even gained notability among the Metal Maniacs from other countries. TSF’s journey was initiated on 2011, where Bengal Death/Thrashing Aghori “Orator” headlined along with the support of local bands like Dying Embrace, Bevar Sea, Gorified and Culminant. International acts like Abigail (Japan), Cauchemar (Canada) and Blood Division (Singapore) have been summoned in the later editions of TSF.

But without any doubt, 4th edition will surpass all of the sumptuousness of the previous edition since the “GOATFATHER” of Asian Extreme Metal scene “Impiety” is going to ravage as the headliner of the fest. Orator (Bangladesh) will revisit Bangalore and will co-headline the fest along with the primitive Death/Doom Monger Dying Embrace (Bangalore, India). Other supporting acts are Ugra Karma (one of the oldest Death Metal Band from Nepal), Serpents Athirist (Filthy Black Metal from Sri Lanka) and Necrodeity (Bestial Death/Black Metal from Kolkata, India). Addition of the Masters of Darkness, “Impiety” in the lineup has taken the extremity of this edition to a paramount level.

Sandesh Shenoy, one of the part of TSF crew stated, “Each edition of the Trendslaughter Fest is a step up from the previous edition. The idea behind it is to try hard to enhance not only the band quotient in terms of extreme music, but also very much in terms quality of sound, back line, stage props, and the overall experience for the fans! This very fact is what differs and defines the TSF “experience” from all the other gigs and makes people enthusiastic and excited about the next editions!”

Many big bands of Metal arena have stepped into India, but TSF-IV will be one of the best Underground Extreme Metal Live Event for the metal fanatics of India.

The year 2013 has a mixed story for black metal. It has been good in some way, few new acts came into being, and few black metal giants released their material. On the other side, the year is saddened by the demise of some noteworthy black metal artists like Marianne Séjourné (Vorkreist, Hell Militia), Wojciech Janus aka 23 (Blaze of Perdition, Stillborn) died. It’s time to focus on some bands that are waiting to release their materials.
