Year-end Metal

So the India metal-heads rejoice - we have now progressed from bringing over the fuddy-duddies of rock to newer, younger bands playing more varied styles of metal. The Great Indian Rock event happened - in four locations in India. I was in Pune to see Meshuggah, Enslaved, Tesseract live and was totally blown away. Awesome, awesome performances! I had my doubts on how the Indian audiences would take to math core, and they were validated by a rather poor turnout. But those that turned up were great, and seemed to totally enjoy the performances. The moshing was almost violent, and there was weed in the air. Red Bull made a fair sale out of the event, and all ended up happy.
Here are some photos of the event from my cell phone -
