Avial is rockin

I do like to eat a lot but this post is about music not food. Nowadays due to all the free time I've been listening to non stop music. And as a result I have started experimenting with various obscure bands whose names are really difficult to even pronounce. Then I finally landed on the Indian Rock and Metal Scene, which isn't something really great. But to my amazement I found out that there are a lot of bands here in India. Most of them are just college guys playing for some competition or the other but there are other professional bands too like Moksha(from Chennai), Parikrama, Indus Creed and others. But the number of such bands are very less.

So I was going around the net searching for Indian rock songs. In the process I found Avial. I know the name is a bit odd. Its actually a name of a dish famous in southern parts of India. Its a five member band which is rocking from Gods Own Country - Kerala(Thrissur). The bands line up is as follows

  1. Tony - Turntables
  2. Rex - Guitars
  3. Anand - Vocals
  4. Joffy - Drums
  5. Naresh - Bass

I have so far seen only one of the songs. Yup these guys have a video. Its a damn good video too. The songs name is "Nada Nada" meaning walk walk in malayalam. You can watch the video in youtube.

Nada Nada Video

The song is really nice and their lyrics is really catchy. I couldn't find much information about them since the official website of Avial is still under construction. You can download the Nada Nada video from Poorman Productions, which is the company that produced the video.

Here is the mp3 version of Nada Nada ripped by rAKeSH thats me :D.

Nada Nada by Avial

If you are unable to listen to the song then download the entire song and then listen to it.

  1. Try listening to vallavan man.. tamil malaysian rappers... "madai thiranthu"...

    "Solluroam ille"

  2. @anonymouse: hey thanks for suggestion. the song was really nice but the video was not that great. but this sounds a bit familiar, i had heard similar songs long time back. you might have heard of a guy called Krishan. His debut album Asian Avenue was similar to this. Try listening to Asian Avenue if u haven't already heard it.
