The man who started the idea of uniting Indian metal fans and bands under one umbrella on the internet, the man behind IndianRockMP3, Santhosh Lobo, is dead. He had been battling rectal cancer for a long time. He will always be remembered as a funny, sarcastic and all-round cheerful man. He always had critiques and solutions to improve the Indian rock and metal scene, he always bought music and merch and was one of the bands’ biggest supporters. Few people have done or will ever do as immense a service to the Indian metal scene. In a way, he was responsible for making it what it is now.
Everyone at Headbangers India is immensely saddened by this loss and we would like to extend our sincere condolences to his family and loved ones. The least we and everyone else at the scene can do now is to not suck at what we are doing. Do it for Santosh Lobo. Be happy friend, wherever you are.
