Gig Review: Bhayanak Maut at Counter Culture

Last evening at Counter Culture witnessed a heavy duty performance by Mumbai-based band Bhayanak Maut. From the word go, the band had everyone right up front head banging and singing in chorus to every song. Like every other business, experience sets the men apart from the boys. And Bhayank Maut's experience in the circuit clearly showed. Very little time was spent between songs in idle chatter, tuning of guitars and long-winding public statements. The band hit the perfect blend of playing and interacting with the crowd who were left wanting more after a tight relatively short set.

Opening the evening for Bhayanak Maut was Cheisrah who ran through a short six-song set. Personally, I wasnt too impressed with anything the band had to offer as it's all been done before. This sentiment was echoed by a few people I spoke to. The small loyal fan base of friends might disagree with me, but Cheisrah has a bit of a distance to go.

And it wouldn't be Counter Culture without their protest against the recent beef ban in Maharashtra. There was an all-beef menu put up. I tried the Beef Kheema Pav and had a slice of the Bhayanak Beef Pizza. I enjoyed the pizza way more than I did the Pav. Here are some pictures from last evening.
