We first heard of Delhi-based metal band Bloodywood when we came across their metal version 
of Daler Mehndi’s Tunak Tunak Tun that went viral. But what started out as a band making parody metal covers of pop songs such as Shape of You and Despacito, has evolved to something more today. “While we said our initial aim was to ‘destroy pop songs’, we have completely moved from playing covers to making originals,” says Jayant Bhadula, the vocalist of the band. The band comes down to Bengaluru this weekend.

Bloodywood’s original compositions blend folk sensibilities with metal music. Along with that, they also want to address some serious social issues through their music. For instance, the song Jee Veerey talks about depression and mental health. The band’s latest single, Machi Bhasad (Expect a Riot), exemplifies the band’s ethos. “Machi Bhasad is a song that targets oppressive establishments. It is a warning that you cannot keep the masses in chains with your lies and propaganda for too long,” Jayant tell us. At the 
upcoming gig, fans can expect these crowd-pleasing numbers and more. 

Post this, the band heads to Europe on their Raj Against The Machine Tour. “We will be playing in Germany, France, England and Russia. We will also be playing at Wacken Open Air and that’s a dream coming true for us. We are a little nervous, but we have a  lot of determination” he signs off.
