Forged In Fire III

Kolkata Old School Metal Association (KOSMA) has been dormant with respect to gigs since their last one in 2015 named Strength of Steel. That was indeed a huge success, and had the giants Albatross, Hellwind and Primitiv from Mumbai as outstation bands along with the local acts. And this time they decided to go all in on bringing in one of the finest heavy metal bands in India as the headlining act. Yes, it is none other than the mighty Kryptos from Bangalore. With just one month to go for the gig, we decided to write an article about it.

We’ve already revealed the headliner but the base of the music scene of any place is built up by the local acts and it is nothing different for Kolkata. Five of the city’s acts will be there at the gig to make you all bang your heads. The local acts include the veterans Armament (Thrash Metal), Blakhole (Punk) and Falcun (Heavy Metal), and two new kids in the scene – The Neighborhood Thrashers (Thrash Metal), Dreadhammer (Thrash Metal). TNT and Dreadhammer have already showed their potentials in Calcutta Punk Society’s Rise Above just a few months back.


Now, the interesting part of the gig is that it will be completely crowd funded and people can pay whatever they want to above the base price of the early bird passes (Rs. 400/-). This concept has already been implemented in KOSMA’s Forged In Fire II and the response was overwhelming. And like every gig of KOSMA, this one is also a pure DIY event organized by the people having a sheer passion for heavy metal music, and there are no sponsors and support from the so called corporate world.
So if you are a heavy metal fan and can be in Kolkata in January 21st, 2017, be sure to attend this or else you may miss out on something massive.

  1. The ‘corporate world’ that you invoked is all pervasive. Just like all other evils in society patriarchy,sexism, capitalism, shitty bands with misspelled bird names.., the list goes on.
    One of the co-founders works in a factory.
    BEEP. CORPORATE ALERT!
    I will get the money for the gig from my father who works in the railways whose 70% profit goes to the defence ministry.
    BEEP. CORPORATE AND WAR PIGS ALERT!
    BUT,
    Does that mean you can’t talk about say Marxism if you work in an MNC?
    Of course you can.

    What we are fighting here, both in life(in general) and metal gigs (in particular) is bootlicking and surrendering our creative control.
    Speak about that. That we are not licking some sponsor’s ass to help us fund this gig. We got enough people! So fuck them 🙂
    See you in the pit when Kryptos burns up the night!
    Cheers 😀
