About this Episode

When it comes to Heavy Metal in India, there is one name that supersedes all others: Millennium. The Bangalore band assumed cult status in the '80s and '90s, creating the foundations on which promoters would be able to welcome the likes of Iron Maiden, Megadeth, and Metallica to the city. On this episode of Bangalore In Stories, Millennium's lead vocalist, Vehrnon Ibrahim, tells us about the origins of the band, highlights from his music career, and why Bangalore became such a Heavy Metal hotbed.  A PodMacha Studios production.
