Vajra + Killing

Live på Backstage scenen 24 Augusti 2018

VAJRA (USA)

Vajra was formed by Annamaria Pinna during her self-imposed exile in India. The child of a former monk and school teacher, Annamaria was encouraged to learn about the world around her and to question her assumptions. She believes there is divinity in creativity. Annamaria has a neurological condition called synesthesia, where she attaches color and shapes to sound.

”It’s time to get to know Vajra” according to Loudwire Magazine. Dubbed a ”Must-See Act” by Rolling Stone Magazine and one of the ”Most underrated bands” by AXS Magazine,”Vajra is really something special and have managed come up with a completely new sound of metal. They bring mystical, moody and haunting melodies to the stage that are completely entrancing. Lead singer Annamaria Pinna’s voice and presence was captivating.”

According to AXS, ”Vajra is really something special and have managed come up with a completely new sound of metal. They bring mystical, moody and haunting melodies to the stage that are completely entrancing. Lead singer Annamaria Pinna’s voice and presence was captivating.”

 

”Their live show is like a cathartic punch in the face” says Creem Magazine, and the band was accordingly selected to perform at the Loudwire Music Festival and Rock-fest, Texas Showdown Festival, CMJ, SXSW and Bratfest.

Vajra’s new single, ”The Mirror” debuted #1 Billboard Mainstream Rock Indicator Most Added Chart and debuted #38 Billboard Mainstream Rock Indicator Chart and #47 Under the Radar Chart. ”Inside The Flame” charted #37 on the Under The Radar Chart.

Vajra’s DIY videos for three of their singles – The Mirror, Inside The Flame (Rapid Oxidation Mix) and 3.14 (Water Mix) – were featured on the Loudwire Top 10 Rock & Metal Video Countdown. Both ”Inside The Flame” and ”3.14 (Water Mix)” were on the Countdown for a combined total of 37 weeks and were subsequently retired as the longest tenured videos on the Countdown. The band also was #1 of the Reverbnation Alternative Rock Music Chart for NYC for 10+ consecutive weeks. Vajra’s music will leave you spell-bound.

KILLING (Denmark)

”From Denmark comes Killing. A band created in 2015 for one purpose only – to play metal inspired by the old school thrash metal scene.
From old Metallica, Slayer, Kreator, Overkill, Testament, Exodus and everything in between! This is pure love to those bands and Killing tries to combine alle the best elements together.
Aggression, speed, heaviness and a bit of catchiness all mixed up in a big bowl of metal!
Even though the band itself only have been around for some years, the members have all been active within the Danish scene for many years. Among some of those bands are End My Sorrow, Hell Inc, I Faderens Skygge and Shit Lord.
Killing is currently working hard to get their first EP done, and it should be out early in 2018. Expect an attack of full throttle thrash metal straight to the bone!
The band have already played a lot of shows in Denmark, and have got positive respons from the audience. Now these Danish thrashers are ready to go out there to kill everyone!”
