Inner Sanctum (India) / Bio

A new decade upon us! Since 2007, Inner Sanctum has been evolving from an underground project band into one of India’s premiere metal outfits and one of Asia’s constant parameters in the thrash and death metal genre.

In 2009, Inner Sanctum entered Resonance Studios to record “Provenance”, their highly acclaimed first release! Blessed with a crushing sound, courtesy Lasse Lammert, LSD Studios, Germany and Resonance Studios, 4 tracks of the band’s own characteristic style unleashes rage upon the listener; storming, violent, old school infused metal. This record made its way into various top ten lists for 2009-10 and has more or less pushed the boundaries of metal music in Asia.
Inner Sanctum has over the years earned critical and commercial acclaim and has even numerous awards including the Band of the Year 2007 (Levis), Band of the year 2009 (headbangers.in) and Best Emerging Band of the year (Jack Daniels Rock Awards).

The story so far... Inner Sanctum was formed in the early months of 2007. Chintan and Michael, the founder members having played with each other for several years decided to join forces and form a band that would best express their influences in music. Tejas who previously played with Chintan for an old school thrash metal outfit, Premonition returned to Bangalore and was roped in as the second guitar player. In search of a drummer and vocalist the trio auditioned several but zeroed in on Abhinav (ex Illusion) and Gaurav, thus completing the line up.

In the summer of 2008, Tejas left the band to complete his higher education enabling Rajeev (ex Inviktus) to take up guitar duties. Since then the band has had its strongest line up.
