In India, Indie music scene is best known for the Hindi Pop artists of India like Alisha Chinai, Daler Mehndi or Sukhbir. Reason, they created a buzz during the start of Millenium, with their Music Video. Though, these artists of Pop genre did captured the eyes of millions and made their way to mainstream music industry which was good for them.
But, what went wrong due the working style of these artists is they overshadowed the other genres of music that were paving ways in the INDIAN Society. One such genre is Heavy Metal, that is breathing in the Indian Indie Circle since 1990s. Heavy Metal is developed as a sort of lifestyle for the artists who are performing for years now.
I bet most of the Indian do not know about this particular genre, I am not going the whole story in this article. But, what I am going to share is how a genre without any mainstream presence or fame is existing for last 25 years? The answer is self-funded Heavy Metal Concert that these artists or the hardcore fans fund money from their pockets to manage any event.
