DDF 6 posterThe baap of Indian extreme-metal festivals is upon us, outdoing itself with the lineup as it does every year. For ordinary mortals who can’t read metal logos, these are the bands performing at Domination: The Deathfest VI: Killchain (OSDM from Mumbai), death-doom act Primitiv (that’s how they spell it), Navi Mumbai death/groove maniacs Wired Anxiety, Insane Prophecy (blackened death/thrash from Guwahati), Bangalore’s sludge lords Shepherd, Plague Throat (death metal from Shillong), and Bombay Death Metal Legion (18 death-worshipping beasts from aamchi Mumbai paying tribute to the unholy gods.) Bombay Death Metal Legion will headline Deathfest VI, playing songs by Deicide, Morbid Angel, Cannibal Corpse, Nile, Vader, Obituary, Death and other death metal monsters. See you at United 21, Thane!

Aditya Mehta on Headbanger’s Kitchen

So, how many bands do you know that have a dish named after them or one of their albums or songs? As a guest on Headbanger’s Kitchen, I was presented a fried dish called Snowless Chicken Kiev, which The Demonstealer has named after my Black Metal band Solar Deity‘s depressive-suicidal black metal single. I got to taste the food only after an interview packed with almost every question The Demonstealer wanted me to answer on his cookery show.

I now think I should’ve skipped the questions on Satanism and Black Metal instead of struggling to answer them differently as I had nothing to add to what has already been said and written before, but what the hell, it’s not everyday you get to see the Solar Deity frontman disoriented (the result of long-term marijuana abuse) and being ruthlessly interrogated by the Demonic Resurrection frontman about what he really thinks of everything from his other band Exhumation to all the ass-licking local wuss bands that have no idea what being metal is about.

The Snowless Chicken Kiev is truly a feast for the senses (you can see in the video how enticing it looks), and as I slowly chewed the succulent chicken, the butter and garlic worked their magic on my tongue, and I shook my head in delight like any Gujarati does involuntarily every time some delicious food enters his belly and adds vitality to the darkness of his being and new meaning to his life.

The first 11 minutes of the episode offer you a fascinating lesson from The Demonstealer himself, as he shows you exactly how to prepare what will henceforth be known in the worlds of music and food as Snowless Chicken Kiev. The rest of the episode has him grilling me with some tough questions which people usually ask me anonymously on I thank The Demonstealer for inviting me to Headbanger’s Kitchen to gorge on his crunchy-on-the-outside and melt-in-your-mouth-on-the-inside Snowless Chicken Kiev, and of course, for helping me make some new enemies!

That, and my brother says I should use a concealer to hide my dark under-eye circles (the result of long-term alcohol abuse). Anyway, go ahead and try The Demonstealer’s Snowless Chicken Kiev recipe, and I hope you like the interview as well!
