About Inner Sanctum (Source: The Bands Website):

Hailing from the Asian metal scene, multi award winning metal band Inner Sanctum has placed India on the metal map of the world. Formed in 2006 in the backdrop of the volatile socio-political environment in India, Inner Sanctum emerged as disruptors from the get-go and have worked tirelessly to promote and unite metal music and fans in India and across the globe.

Hugely respected in the world of heavy music the band has won a slew of prestigious awards - the "Band of the Year 2007" by Levis, “Band of the year 2009" by Headbangers India, “Emerging Band of the year 2010” by the Jack Daniels International Rock Awards and “Second Best Band in India 2014” by Pepsi MTV Indies and “Best Guitarist and Best Drummer” at the Rolling Stones Metal Awards 2016. Their first offering “Provenance” in 2009 was a commercial and critical success. This record made its way into various top ten lists for 2009-10 and pushed the boundaries of metal music in Asia. Off the back of this release, the band performed alongside several legendary artists such as Metallica (Rock’N India 2011), Slayer (Rock’N India 2012), Cradle of Filth, Testament, Periphery, Meshuggah, Tesseract, Enslaved, Amon Amarth, Textures, to name a few. In 2013, Inner Sanctum toured through Europe in support of the “Wake of Destruction Tour” with special appearances at Metal Fest, Poland and 8 cities in Germany. Soon after, Inner Sanctum co-headlined some of the biggest music festivals in India such as NH7 Weekender, Bangalore, Kingfisher October Fest, GoMad Festival and the like. Inner Sanctum has consistently reinvented the wheel and are one of the few metal bands in India which was has achieved consistent mainstream and underground recognition and success.

The 2015 album “Legions Awake” was hailed as a metal masterpiece and an artistic tour-de-force from a band with a formidable and unique purpose. The album featured guest appearances by Christopher Amott (Armageddon, Ex-Arch Enemy), Daniel Mongrain (Voivod, Martyr, Ex-Gorguts, Ex- Cryptopsy, Capharnaum) and James Murphy (Ex- Death, Ex-Testament, Ex-Obituary, Ex-Lazarus A.D.). Pursuant to the release, Inner Sanctum was invited to represent India in the Inferno Metal Festival at Norway and toured extensively to promote the album. Inner Sanctum launched its own music festival in India in 2017 called The Hardwire festival, with the primary objective of transforming India into a destination for international metal bands. The first edition was tremendously successful, and the festival was headlined by Psycroptic (Australia) and numerous Indian metal bands. The festival’s second edition is slated to happen in 2020.

Inner Sanctum continues to push the threshold of metal music. Their aggressive style of music coupled with the relentless hunger to grow will write the new chapter of the band in years to come.
