Orka Networks & Inner Sanctum present Hardwire Metal Festival 2017

This is the first iteration of The Hardwire Metal Festival. The Festival is owned and promoted by the multi award winning death/thrash band, Inner Sanctum. The festival is unique in more ways than one, with the band taking it upon themselves to build a unique platform for heavy music. Incidentally, Inner Sanctum launches this venture on the 10th year since their inception, with a line-up that promises to enthrall metal-heads and extreme music lovers.

Bringing things full circle from the days when they were influenced by Sepultura in their youth. They've have toured all corners of the globe with names that need no introduction to those in the know - Cannibal Corpse, Suicide Silence, Decapitated, The Faceless, Obituary, Carcass, Nile, The Black Dahlia Murder, Origin, Kataklysm, Aborted, Despised Icon, Suffocation, Veil of Maya, Cryptopsy, Misery Index, Vader, Born of Osiris, Hate Eterna, They're Psycroptic. It’s safe to say that their place in the history of heavy metal is solidified and that everything that happens from here on in is simply a bonus.  

Came into existence in early 2012 and laid the foundation for one of the most promising acts to newly emerge out of India that year. With numerous copies of the album and merchandise tees being sold all over the country and also quite notably abroad, their audience base has been increasing, with the newer reviews continuing to pour in the praises about the album. A lethal blend of somber tunes accompanied by intense technical rhythms, supported by fiercely independent bass lines, bolstered with decimating drumming, and channeled by lyrical themes delivered through bestial vocals. They're Fragarak.

From Hyderabad, India emerges a new death metal force that's both powerful and stimulating. Featuring members of Skrypt, Shock Therapy, and Eccentric Pendulum, this is a new sound, a new sonic vision. Known for their cutting edge Death Metal. They convey their message perfectly and go straight for the jugular, speaking out against the maladies that plague modern society. Their voice of dissent is tangible and they're here to unleash their brand of death metal upon the unsuspecting masses, fuelled by angst, purpose and an undying passion for extreme music. They are Loud, abrasive, a metal band from Hyderabad, They're Godless.

A multi award winning death/thrash metal band from Bengaluru, India. Since 2006, They have evolved from an underground project band into one of India’s premier metal outfits and one of Asia’s constant parameters in the thrash and death metal genres. Over the years they have 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), to name but a few. They are brutal, they are Inner Sanctum.
