Bangalore-based thrash metal band Theorized have been added to the Bangalore Open Air lineup, and they’ll be replacing the Wacken Metal Battle India North Zone winners, Delhi-based hardcore band Grammy Winning Effort. Theorized will hit the stage at noon, after the conclusion of the Wacken Metal Battle.
Theorized is a Thrash Metal outfit from Bangalore, India. Though it was formed in 2005, the band has come a long way from playing happy chords at birthday parties to destroying pubs with their brand of thrash. It was around 2008 when things got a little serious after few changes in the line-up and they started developing their own sound with ‘strong’ inspirations from Nevermore, Death, Old Monk, Opeth, Exodus, Martyr, Haywards 5000, Kreator, Meshuggah, Testament and the likes. The band has received an amazing response after the release of the debut E.P ‘False Hope Of Tyranny’ in January 2009, managing to sell more than 1000 copies all over the country and also abroad in Australia, USA, Canada and Japan without a record label. Apart from pub gigs alongside International Acts like Nervecell (UAE), Cypher 16 (UK), Torch & Social Suicide (Norway), the band supported Opeth (Sweden) & Suidakra (Germany) at the Summerstorm Festival 2012 and also did a North-East India tour which included the Hornbill Festival.
The sound has turned a little progressive ever since the EP release and currently they have been working on some new material rooting for a full length sometime in 2012.
