We explore the Heavy Metal music scene in India with Sitar Metal. Sitar Metal are the world's first (and possibly only) sitar metal band. As in they shred hard on sitars. After making waves in the home country, the band came to our attention and we want to know more. We caught up with band leader Rishabh Seen to ask what the scene is like in their home town, who their biggest influences are and the history of metal in India.
