What’s cookin’? May 28, 2005

Filed under: Uncategorized — Abhimanyu Ghoshal @ 8:03 am

Again, its been a while. I’ve been busy, what with the release of my school yearbook (that I designed) and getting my progressive metal band together. I’ve been receiving quite a few calls from musicians who are interested in the project. However, its pretty hard to work with more than one drummer and one bassist and two guitars. Oh, does anyone have any recommendations for band names? We’re into progressive rock and metal, with a technical feel as well as some jazz and funk bits thrown in. A lot of heavy riffs, with a generous infusion of melody. Influences: Dream Theater, Pain of Salvation, Evergrey, Freak Kitchen.
Here are some names I’ve been thinking of:

  • The Limit
  • The Dust That Settles
  • Synergenetic
  • Chains of Reaction

::Film::
Bose – The Forgotten Hero / Directed by Shyam Benegal
Nicely made, providing a great insight into the life and struggles of Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose. Apparently, Bose’s character was not portrayed powerfully enough (from what many viewers who have read up on Bose tell me). He was far more stern and driven than the film shows. Still, I thought it was quite interesting to hear the story of such a wonderful character. Its people like Bose, who have ambitions strong enough to decide for them their paths in life that strike me. Good show!

::Music::
Freak Kitchen – Dead Soul Men / Heavy\Experimental Metal
What a brilliant band, and what a marvellous album. Freak Kitchen is refreshingly politically incorrect, witty and amazingly talented. Every song features great songwriting, and the lyrics just get you. Their music is part prog, part straight-up heavy. Must hear: Gun God, Silence, The Sinking Planet

    well, i was thinking of “Dark Sanctum” for my band (or whatever i will form, in my dreams only). “Epiphany” sounds good. from your suggestions, synergenetic sounds ripped off from synergy, too big too. chains of reaction soudes too.
