Demonic Resurrection frontman Demonstealer has launched a new old school heavy metal supergroup ‘Hellwind’. The band features Akshay Deodhar (Spook) on vocals, Rajarshi Bhattacharyya (ex-Workshop) and Kiron Kumar (ex-Colossus) on guitars, Aditya Kadam (Workshop, Funk The System) with Demonstealer taking over the drummers throne.
As mentioned in an article by Rolling Stone India magazine, the band was initially an effort put in by Riju Dasgupta and Akshay Deodhar, planning to make the band a rock/power metal project, but on jamming with the entire band, they realised that the music wasn’t much of power metal and decided to change the name in the musical direction the band was heading. Riju left the band prior to the release due to work commitments and was replaced by Aditya Kadam from Funk the System/Workshop.
As Makhija told NH7.in, “The band will be playing originals but have decided that we will also do a lot of fun pop rock covers in our own style. There is a gig in the works right now, we’ll let you know as soon as it is confirmed.”
The band has already created a storm, as with the news of the band, they also launched a single called ‘Taste of Metal’ on their SoundCloud page.
