Rock Machine was mainly a "covers-only" band, mainly Glam Metal heavily influenced by American and British rock groups such as Bon Jovi, Def Leppard, Deep Purple, Van Halen, Whitesnake, and others. Based in Bombay (now known as Mumbai), Rock Machine was one of the first bands in India to tour the length and breadth of the country. Around 1988, the band launched Rock and Roll Renegade, India's first all-original rock album. The album was successful among Indian rock music aficionados and Rock Machine's touring made them very popular among college audiences. The band was known for its slick, well-produced concerts, unlike the highly unpredictable, inconsistent shows put up by amateur Indian bands. The early 1990s saw a major shift in the entertainment landscape in India.

The arrival of MTV made new American and British music more accessible to Indian rock listeners. Almost overnight, the tastes changed and listeners either wanted heavier, harder rock (such as Metallica) or an alternative sound. Thus, "Indus Creed" came into existence in 1993. Gone were the 80s-style clothes and songs.

The band adopted a new name that signalled a more global and hip image. Their sound changed dramatically; they introduced softer, more acoustic instruments, including a tabla player. Their third album titled Indus Creed was promoted extensively on MTV and even got them a hit single ("Trapped"). Read more on Last.fm.
