Turn It Up To 11: Akshay Rajpurohit of Scribe, Pangea
The Mumbai guitarist from hardcore band Scribe and instrumental metal band Pangea is cranking it up with these tunes
As far as transitions go, guitarist Akshay Rajpurohit went from nu-metal [Skincold] to hardcore/fun metal [Scribe] and instrumental, prog metal [Pangea] ever since he was part of the metal community. It’s no wonder his Turn It Up To 11 playlist has a mix of everything from ambient to metalcore.Â
Paper Diamond ”“ “Air Lift”
Pure trap. Paper Diamond has a knack for creating unforgettable tunes. Whenever I miss the frequency spectrum under 100 Hz, I know exactly what I want. #baked
Huoratron ”“ “Cryptocracy”
This is EDM’s answer to death metal. That’s all I can say. Actually, I want to add some more: this song is freaking insane. The video is insane-r. I’d recommend the whole album, actually. Make sure you ain’t epileptic, though.
Gas ”“ “Discovery”
Gas 0095  was an album that destroyed every notion I had about ambient music. It’s haunting, airy, vibey and evolves majestically. I haven’t a doubt in my mind why the record cost upwards of $450 at one point in time.
Killswitch Engage ”“ “In Due Time”
America’s Soilworkers are back, and they sound fantastic. Jesse Leach is destroying it and man, he doesn’t suck [pun intended]. I like the song because… riffs.
C2C ”“ “Down The Road”
I rarely like turntablist music, but these guys are different. Combining hip hop, house and some feel good inc. in everything they’ve made so far. This song has such a nice feel to it; I think it’s a pillow.
