Band Profiles

Inner Sanctum


Status: Active

Origin: Bangalore

Genre: Death metal

Currently one of India’s best bands, Inner Sanctum was formed in the early months of 2007. This Bangalore based technical death metal/ thrash metal outfit was founded by Chintan and Michael, who had played with each other for several years previously. They decided to join forces and form a band that would best express their influences in music. Soon, the line-up was complete, with Tejas, Abhinav and Gaurav joining the ranks.

Line-up changes are part and parcel of every band. In the summer of 2008, Tejas quit to do his higher studies. He was replaced by Ashish, formerly from the band Spit.

Musically, the band explores technical death and thrash metal styles. Melodic leads and phrasing, coupled with technical riffing and aggressive drumming characterize the band’s sound. A hot favourite at all competitions and performances, Inner Sanctum will very soon make a major breakthrough in the music scene, not only for themselves, but also for Indian metal.
