The most awaited prelims in the town “Jd Institute Of Fashion Technology presents “Hammerfest” and Avaroha –Battle of the Bands (Auditions-East Zone) at Assam Academy was really good.

Coming to the show, it was a bit delay due to technical problems. It was one of the best prelims ever attended. There were 22 bands for the “Hammerfest” prelims and 5( 3 bands from Hammerfest’s line-up list) bands for “Avaroha-Battle of the Bands”. Each band was allowed to play two numbers (Including 1 original).

Almost all the bands nailed the show at its best. Special mentions to some new bands like Arch Warlord, Gore Decimate were tight. The Judges for both the auditions were Rainjong Lepcha and David Koch. Keeping in mind how the weather was, there was a pretty good crowd at the hall. The sound provided was not good as many bands faced tribulations while playing. Overall, it was quite good as none of the bands backed out and I must say that it was one of the best prelims in the town.

The results were


Gore Decimate,

Stereo Inject,

Arch Warlord,

Fellow Creatures,


Judas Ancestry,

Fatal Malice,
