Aadim - A Metal Band of Pokhara

Initially named AADIM DESH, this rock/thrash group from pokhara has Bipan Ojha on Vocals, Subash Rasaili on lead Guitar, Simen Tamrakar on Drums, Suresh Chettri on Guitars and Bikash Gurung on Bass. Formed in the year 2002 by Prakash Rasaili (former drummer) brother of lead guitarist of this band, Subash and Bipan; they found the "desh" factor a little weird. So they get rid of the "desh", did "desh nikala" in their own words.
Most of the members of AADIM draw influences from foreign acts like Metallica, Pantera, Megadeth, Sepultura, Dreamtheatre and from local groups like 1974 AD, Cruentus, Ugrakarma, Antim Grahan, Bhumi . So far, Aadim has performed in scores of events including Alter Buzz in New Years Day, Fewa Mahotsav, Bhadrakali School gig, Winter Musical Bonanza , Damside Street Festival and lake side Street Festival 2009 .
So far, their original entitled "Itihas"-a classical rock number, has been featured in "Project Alchemix", a local compilation. Besides, they have many compositions ready for recording viz. "Mero Desh-a rock number, "Karadau Rachana Haru-a thrash number" , "Murda Ghar" and "Course of karnali " in future they are going to release their 1st single album .
