The name translates to ‘Terrible Death’, and this by itself would probably give you an idea of the intensity of the band’s music. Bhayanak Maut hails from Mumbai. And alongside other local metal bands, Bhayanak Maut has also paved the way for the New Wave of Indian Metal. All The band has created a massive fan base that’s unheard of in the Indian scene, thanks to their killer performances all over. Influenced by everyone, from local metal acts to international metal giants, Bhayanak Maut has created a signature metal sound for itself.
In its 6 years of existence, the band has played at some of the biggest gigs in the country, including, Independence Rock, Great Indian Rock festival and Channel [v] Launchpad. They have also put out a full-length album and are a part of many Indian Metal Compilations. Their EP is called ‘Malignant’, and they also featured in Fine Tuned Disasters, a compilation album.
Lead by Vinay and Sunny on vocals, Bhayanak Maut creates an honest yet brutal wall of music for people to pummel into. Their music is a blend of metal, hardcore and grind elements with groove. The twin-guitar attack of Aditya and Venky rips through with unparalleled veracity while being as vicious as possible. Rahul and Vinit, on drums and bass respectively, boom their way through any problem while being Bhayanak Maut’s titanium pillars. More than anything, Bhayanak Maut thrives on playing live. Their epic stage act is already the stuff of legends. And the fun bit is that they take it a notch higher every time they get on stage. While the audience stays on their toes, witnessing a new Bhayanak Maut at every show. The Bhayanak Maut evolution looks like it’ll never stop and hopefully, it won’t, for they’re India’s hope amongst a couple of other bands in the international scene
