“Consisting of Vishal J. Singh (guitars, programming, mixing) and Jim “Drumblast” Richman (percussion), Amogh Symphony is a progressive metal project formed in 2004. The EP Ashwamedh was released in 2005 in the UK under Kollosal (now defunct) and was distributed in limited copies for reviews. The EP was recognized for influences in its unique progressive metal sound, ranging from eastern music to jazz, and gathered a positive reception from listeners and reviewers. Within 4 years of existence of this project and mayhem in the underground circuit of Asian metal, Vishal inspired a whole new generation of Progressive/Technical metal bands not just in his country India but United States, many European countries and Asian regions like Japan and Indonesia. Reports and evidences clearly indicates that Amogh Symphony is one of the pioneer of Technical Metal movement in India. Some other reputed Indian metal bands who changed their sound to more ‘technical and experimental’ side are Infernal Wrath and Undying Inc. North-east part of India is growing up giving birth to a bunch progressive and technical metal bands and solo artists in the last 2 years.
