Genre: Groove/Death metal
Atmosfear is a four piece death metal band from Mumbai. Formed in 2005 by Ulhas, Bruce and Frank, the guys started off like most others, and jammed on covers mainly. After the inclusion of Mayank on drums and Shezan on lead guitars, Atmosfear gained momentum. They created a few originals and started playing shows in Mumbai.
Hugely influenced by Six Feet Under, Cannibal Corpse, Napalm Death, Deicide, Carcass, Slayer and Kaamos, the band’s music is heavy as hell, staying true to their death and extreme metal influences.
The group made it to the finals on their very first competition ‘Powerchords’ 06 at SIES College Mumbai, and also played “ESP Explosion” the ESP Guitar launch gig at Razz.
Accolades came and went, and by mid-2007, Ulhas started working as a tour manager. Since he was out of the country most of the time, vocal duties were handled by Bruce for a while. The band also got Vincent (a.k.a. ‘The Beast’) from Prakalp on bass as Frank was busy with his other band Devoid.
On 22nd October 2007, Vince passed away, causing a major blow to the band. Their song, “Visions of the Beast” is a tribute to Vince.
But Atmosfear moved on, winning a whole row of competitions, as a band and as individual instrumentalists. Due to the constant line up changes, the band never got the chance to perform outside the city of Mumbai. This has changed over the past few months though. However, they have made their mark in the ever happening metal scene in Mumbai and are looking to play elsewhere in the country as well.
