We last spoke to the folk metal band, Bloodywood, in 2019 when they were heading for a ‘Raj Against The Machine Europe’ tour, a cheeky pun on the infamous band Rage Against the Machine. Last year, the band made headlines when Rage Against The Machine guitarist Tom Morello tweeted about them.

The band first started making metallic parodies of pop songs such as Shape of You, Despacito and even Daler Mehndi’s Tunak Tunak Tun. However, they attracted a huge fanbase with their original music, a mix of metal, folk and rock elements.

The Delhi-based band have just released their debut album, Rakshak, which tackles political themes such as the separation of religious feelings from the state. As the band prepares for their “Nine Inch Naans” multi-city tour, vocalist Raoul Kerr tells us what to expect…

How did you feel about Tom Morello’s scream?
On the one hand, it’s amazing and like a dream come true. On the other hand, it’s believable because we’ve worked very hard for everything we’ve achieved. Tom’s Scream was a big moment for us since we grew up listening to Rage Against the Machine.

Tell us about the tour.
‘Nine Inch Naans’ Tour (a pun on the rock band Nine Inch Nails). We are going to play in Mumbai and Hyderabad for the very first time; Delhi and Bengaluru. Both cities were amazing the last time we played there. After that, we head to Japan, Europe, UK and USA.

What topics does Rakshak cover?
On a personal level, it was created to tap into the listener’s inner guardian and join them in their battle against their demons. It was also created with the global community in mind, as a rallying cry to unite all like-minded people in the fight for a better world, to unite and protect each other.

What was the inspiration?
Every act of kindness we have seen or experienced in our lifetime inspires us. This and the fact that humanity has always had the power to build a better world.
