They came. They saw. They rocked their socks off. Monster Energy India was there to join in the festivities, too.
The G-Shock Bangalore Open Air event – India’s only dedicated open air heavy metal music festival – took place Saturday, July 7, at Aadya Farms Leisure Park in Yelahanka to much fanfare, much fun and lots of head banging heavy metal. Thousands of heavy metal music fans packed the Park for a days’ worth of great music from world-renowned artists.
The artists, which consisted of Overkill, Immolation, Kryptos, Alcest, Nervecell and Eccentric Pendulum jammed from when doors opened at 1 p.m. deep into the evening hours. Alcest, particularly had an interesting story, as G-Shock marked the first time the France-based rockers played in India after nearly five years of failed attempts to bring its music to the nation. Overkill was another highlight, as the American group made its G-Shock Bangalore debut to the delight of India’s heavy metal music fans. Immolation, another American-based act, has been performing since 1986 and has released 10 studio albums.
