More about PAROUSIA:
In the early years of this millennia, Parousia started off as something of a shadow player in Southern India’s vibrant underground scene. In the first decade of their existence, they muscled their way into critical kudos, kicked prime live posterior, disappeared underground (in the underground, if you can beat that) and then resurfaced more than a couple of times. Once upon a time it was all a little apropos for a band that got its moniker from the Greek word meaning the second coming. Innuendos aside, they are now looking for a Sumerian word that means ‘keep on coming’.
True to their reputation of being a band with a wall of sound, their musical inspirations and love
spans from Asia to Zappa and everything in between. They play virtuoso guitar driven music, with melodic vocals reaching the upper echelons of human cry and progressive overtones that cuts through. Having negotiated their way through the threatening undergrowth of time, displacement and egos and dragging the dream through a tangle of studies, jobs, travels and even marriages, the band went into a hiatus. Most of them carried on plying their trade and honing their skills with other big contemporary acts (Raghu Dixit Project, Galeej Gurus, Suraj Mani, Slain, TAAQ, Bhoomi etc..,)
With all the music and miles under their belts, a loyal base of fans, friends, fellow music aficionados and a touch of nostalgia, here they are. More convinced than ever that we have a quintessential place on the sonic landscape of rock music in India. Even whilst they sleep, the dream is very much alive and kicking and it manifests as Reality. Presenting Parousia, one more time, and repeat.
Featuring: Ranjit Abraham, Naveen Thomas, Jason Zachariah, Joe Jacob, Naresh Nathan, Britto Laban.
