Paying the price — Kryptos recall travelling 50 hours to play 40 minute set
Bangalore, India based heavy metal rockers Kryptos featuring frontman Nolan Lewis, bassist Ganesh K. and lead guitarist Rohit Chaturvedi used to do a lot of travelling just to play a 40 minute set and you would be hard pressed to find many bands willing to do that.
The following message was posted on Kryptos‘ Facebook page earlier today:
“Probably one of our oldest live pics, if not the oldest. This was taken 20 years ago, way back in the year 2000 when we played at ”Domination – The Deathfest” in Bombay. We travelled what must have been 24 – 26 hours by train from Bangalore to Bombay, played the gig, got trashed on cheap booze and got trashed some more on the train ride back home. So yeah, we used to travel approximately 50 hours in total to play a 40 minute set. No cellphones, no internet, no nothing. Just a bunch of long-haired goons out to have a good time. Fortunately not much has changed on that front.”
Kryptos‘ discography consists of Spiral Ascent (2004), The Ark of Gemini (2008), The Coils of Appolyon (2012), Burn Up The Night (2017) and Afterburner (2019) with the latter released via the label AFM Records.
