The Down Troddence – debut video for ‘Shiva’

May 24th, 2011

The Down Troddence, from Kannur, Kerala, India have recently unleashed their debut Official Music Video for theĀ  third track titled – ‘Shiva’. Check it out below:


The lyrics of the song is in Sanskrit language, an ancient language of India depicting the stories of Hindu Mythology. As the band also derives some of the influences from Vedic Metal, the lyrical part is an adaptation of ‘Shiva Thandava Sthothram’ – an extempore-poetry where Raavana (a demon character in Hindu Mythology) praising Lord Shiva for getting his blessings when Lord Shiva didnt appear before his penance.”

The music video depicts the story of Raavana’s penance for Lord Shiva’s blessing. Angry at Shiva’s silence, Raavana goes to Kailasa and plays this poetry with a veena (a music instrument) made out of his intestine. The video also shows Pottan Theyyam (an art form which tells the story between Sankaracharya and Lord Shiva). It briefs the meeting of Lord Shiva disguised as Pulayan (down trodden) with the intention to further test Sankaracharya’s knowledge who is proud of himself and about to ascend “Sarwanjha Peedam” (throne of knowledge).
