Official social links of Regicide
Asmita - First of all, thanks a lot for interview, so what are you really looking forward from Nepali underground scene?
Sudarshan - We have heard that the Nepali underground scene is savage and absolutely loves its extreme metal. We are looking forward immensely to rocking out with Nepali metalheads to our brand of Old School death metal and we hope that they'll give it all their energy.
Asmita - Can I get the short biography of your band? And what is the meaning of Regicide exactly means to the band?
Sudarshan: Regicide was formed in early 2017 by Sudarshan and Sonaksh as an Old School death metal act drawing influences from Bolt Thrower, Massacre, Unleashed, Cancer etc. The sound of the band is constantly changing and evolving into a more and more savage embodiment of the OSDM genre. The word 'Regicide’ literally means overthrowing of a throne by conspiracy, which in the wider sense, signifies that support of the ruled is vital for the ruling.
Asmita - What are the lyrical themes you use in your songs? gore, horror, politics, anti religion etc..
Sudarahan : Regicide’s lyrical themes are mostly based on Warfare, terrorism, Mythical battles and myths, Religious propoganda etc.
Asmita - How it feels to be in a Underground band? And what’s your message to underground community?
Sudarshan: The underground community remains underground only because of the lack of support of those who profess their love for it. Our message to the underground fans would be to wholeheartedly support what they love to see it grow, because they are the building blocks of the underground.
Asmita - In general term extreme metal isn't appreciated by Society what do you have to say on this?
Sudarshan : Conservative society has its reasons and reservations, however biased, against extreme metal acts and the genre that encompasses these acts. Extreme metal represents conveying emotions and veracious thoughts that are not subject to censorship and screening. It is a society of its own that believes in no discrimination. So the thoughts of any other society about extreme metal is irrelevant.
Asmita - Can you recommend us some good bands from your place for our readers?
Sudarshan : Aempyrean, Kryptos, Anorectal Ulceration, Amorphia, Warmarshal, Infamy, Dying Embrace, Moral Putrefaction etc.
Asmita - Do you remember the feeling of your first show with Regicide? and how did the crowd reacted to your first show?
Sudarshan: Our first show was in an extremely small bar in Bangalore with no stage and no lights. While the sound was terrible, we kept the energy high and the crowd of 50 really responded great to the energy we brought forth, even if not the music at that point.
Asmita - What do you hate in current underground scene?
Sudarshan : Bitching about each other in a small scene instead of supporting each other to get to the top, people who cannot seperate personal beliefs from their music and bands who don't treat their fans with respect.
Asmita - Support Underground Metal, how much you agree on this quote?
Sudarshan : I agree with it completely. I believe that fans must atleast support bands they like in whatever way they can.
Asmita - Any thought about touring or playing shows in Nepal and India?
Sudsrshan : Yes, we have wanted to tour Nepal and North-east India from a very long time. We hope this can happen soon.
