The Top Ten

Bhayanak Maut (Mumbai)
They really deserve to b no. 1.. No1 can beat the aggression with which they perform. Their concerts are just out of this world
They can be aggressive an melodious at the same time. They have 2 vocalists, both of which are full of energy and can do almost all styles of screaming and growling. Awesome band.
Best riffs, best stage act, most brutal lyricists and by far the most professional Indian metal band.

2Demonic Resurrection (Mumbai)
Demonic resurrection is the pioneer of metal in india.. It has to be at least in the top 5 spot.. Come on man
A great band from mumbai... Salutation to their efforts... I have almost listen all the songs all I can say is m/
Actually D. R is #1... Really hard working artists... Love you guys m/

3Undying Inc. (Delhi)
Uncompromising in their style of playing a mix of brutal, technical and odd-meter extreme metal for almost a decade, Undying Inc have progressively carved out a niche of their own. Despite the pit-falls of line-up changes and an underground ethic, their rabid following of die-hard fans bears testimony to the attitude with which Undying Inc approach their metal.

Undying Inc is an explosive live act that has supported and played with some of the biggest names in metal across major rock festivals in India; Meshuggah, Tesseract, Textures, Megadeth, Amon Amarth, Satyricon, Benea Reach, Sahg, Cypher 16. The band has also toured Norway in the winter of 2011 with post-hardcore band Torch and returned to play at the Inferno Metal Festival in 2012.
Awesome Band... This band made our event a special one and really we miss you all
The very metal band with real voice. this is the only band that beat my heart fast and thumping.
