Shrapnel Method


Up and coming Nu-Metal band Shrapnel Method (previously known as Xorostrian) are taking the UG scene by storm. They have Jeffrey Ovijeet Ghosh on drums, Faisal Ahmed Pavel on bass, Rimon on keyboards, Rabiul Awal Real on vocals, Rezwan Ashraf and Samir Hafiz on guitars (yes, it is THE Samir Hafiz from Powersurge). The band started off with none of the current members except vocalist Real, so the band decided to change the name as “a descriptive imagery and reference to the edge and tightness of the band's compositions Read more on Last.fm
Up and coming Nu-Metal band Shrapnel Method (previously known as Xorostrian) are taking the UG scene by storm. They have Jeffrey Ovijeet Ghosh on drums, Faisal Ahmed Pavel on bass, Rimon on keyboards, Rabiul Awal Real on vocals, Rezwan Ashraf and Samir Hafiz on guitars (yes, it is THE Samir Hafiz from Powersurge). The band started off with none of the current members except vocalist Real, so the band decided to change the name as “a descriptive imagery and reference to the edge and tightness of the band's compositions, as well as the members' dedication and method for musical input.” When asked what genre they generally follow, the band says, “We primarily focus on the Nu-metal genre, although not to the full extent, but we like to keep our sound as unique, attacking, attractive, edgy and interesting as possible from the metal point of view. We also tend to add a lot of different progressions in our songs.” Shrapnel Method originally started its journey as 'Xoroastrian' in 2005.

Soon afterwards, Samir replaced the lead guitarist and the band kicked off. After a few years of gigging, with current vocalist Real and guitarist Samir, the other members eventually called it quits. Samir gradually recruited new members from various people he knew. Rezwan was his guitar student, Ovi was an old friend and jam buddy, Pavel was a bass player from the band 'Soothsayer'.

Since then the band began to hone their skills and started writing their own pieces and performing regularly. The current keyboardist Rimon recently replaced a long time absent member Azhar and the new lineup was completed in 2009. The band draws inspiration from the music of Mudvayne, Pantera, Disturbed, System of a Down, Slipknot, Alter Bridge, Linkin Park, Metallica, Guns N Roses, Dream Theatre, Pink Floyd, Joe Satriani and Yngwie Malmsteen among many others. Their original tracks are usually written by Ovi and Real and composed by Samir and Rezwan. For now, the band has three completed tracks, Autripto, Mriter Dhoni and Shurjodoy, and the rest, for an album, are under construction. “We are working very hard to finish the album but we aren't really rushing it, as we want to maintain a good standard in what we do” says the band when asked if the album is to be released in the near future. “We don't consider ourselves to be a big act, but every thing starts small and grows along the way, and hopefully our journey will not be different.” says the band. For now you can check them out on their Facebook page for updates and show schedules but be sure to catch them live! It's a band you must watch live to get the full extent of what great musicians they are. Read more on Last.fm.
