Dhwesha (India) - Yuddhabhumi (demo 2012)
"Dhwesha is a one of a kind death metal act who write songs in Kannada and look to uphold the flag of old school death metal, borrowing influences from the likes of Bolt Thrower, Dismember,Unleashed and the likes.
Dhwesha's music is all about straight forward old school death metal, characterized by staccato riffing, combined with aggression and melody in lethal doses.
Dhwesha started off as a two piece band in 2008. Rooted to Old school Death Metal with a few doom/atmospheric elements, the band quickly carved quite a niche for themselves. Initially consisting of Somesha on guitars and Ajay on vocals, the band recorded four songs and received quite a commendable response from the metal community.The band was joined by Adarsh, the bass player for Culminant, in 2011. Playing to drum tracks, the trio began practicing to play gigs, while at the same time scouting for drummers both on and off the internet. The search eventually resulted is finding Tushar Bajaj, through a mutual friend. Tushar who was (and still is) the drummer of Orbitual was eager as hell to join in. Though a few years younger, he proved himself to be a worthy fit and thus the band began their practice with their new found drummer. Continually doing shows in around their hometown of Bangalore,they managed to establish themselves as a stand-out death metal act.
Dhwesha have one release till date. A demo tape titled Yuddhabhumi containing 6 songs."
