Tangents is a 5 piece Ambient Progressive Metal act based in Bangalore, formed sometime in the month of May 2014.
The soundscape that the band creates is a mix of minimalistic groove oriented bass lines, polyrhythmic odd time drumming grooves, a whole lot of ghost notes, and melodic yet technical and heavy guitar riffs, coupled with soulful ambient guitars on the other end. Combine this with strong and heavy vocals, and what you hear is the unique sound that is Tangents.
The band looks to be one of the front runners of the progressive metal scene in the country in the coming years.
Oscillys, a new Progressive Rock/Metal project, was formed early 2013 by Pim Wesselink and Thomè de Souza. Originally the band started as nothing more than a side project but eventually Oscillys became a lot more than "just a side project".
Pim and Tom had a passion for music with a light ambient feel and decided to make this kind of music instead of just listening to it. Despite the fact that Oscillys had a slow start as a band and lots of trouble finding members they continued rather as a project than a band. As they continued writing their music a few songs were born.
Formed in early 2008, NOK NOVUM is an experimental metal band from Calgary, Alberta. Originally conceived as a two-piece, guitarist Grant Cooper and drummer Brady Mason create a distinct, textured sound of groove and melody.
