Fantastic Voyage // A show to bring together bands that play eclectic styles of heavy music.
Formed in late 2011 and based in Bangalore, Orchid is a four-piece band that plays a unique brand of heavy music influenced by prog rock/metal and psychedelia. Orchid released their self-titled debut EP in 2016 to critical acclaim and are currently recording their debut full-length album due to be out this year.
Haiku-Like Imagination is a 5-piece post-hardcore/math rock band. The idea behind the band is a cohesion of pop-esque melodies with absurd, yet intricate rhythm structures. A powerhouse of dynamic
polyrhythmic drum sections, melodic bass lines, twin guitar harmonies, robust screams combined with melancholic clean vocals and glitchy, dissonant breakdowns is a subtle description of their music. The band aims to simplify the seemingly complicated progressive music genre and reach out to everyone while simultaneously catering to niche audiences as well.
Trash Talk is a four-piece metal band from Bangalore. The band's music can be best described as experimental with the incorporation of genres such as rap, reggae, and funk. With influences ranging from Gojira to Rage Against the Machine to Tool, their unorthodox compositions and unpredictable progressions have helped them build a unique sound. They are currently working on recording new music that is set to release later this year.
