About ‘Vishnu’: Delhi based heavy metal band, VISHNU, was formed in 2001 and spent the first few months in exploring their sound. The band consisted of Rajiv Khati handling vocal duties, Rohit Menon on guitars, Sanjiv Khati on Bass, Pankaj Bhuttan on Drums and Kishen Gaur on guitars. The band didn't boast of any guitar gods in it's fold, a decent drummer and an above average vocalist, but when it all got together they had something REALLY good going for them. The band exploded on the scene with the first self-composition named "Shadows of a bright moonlight" that was sent and chosen for the Great Indian Rock- Dirty Dozen compilation. With the departure of Kishen Gaur, Sanjiv Khati moved on to handle lead guitar duties, and the band recruited Rajat Mittal AKA "Bigfoot" to handle bass duties. The band went from strength beyond strength in the Delhi circuit headlining venues/ concerts like Friends of Music, DCE, NSIT, and St. Stephen's college etc along with headlining IIT- Kanpur with Motherjane, a show that saw 3,000+ people go in a complete frenzy to every note that the band hit. VISHNU was also the only band to be selected for the "June Rock Out" held in Chennai three years in a row. Songs such as "Desert Storm", and "Blindfolded" were being requested for by the crowd more and more at live gigs, which was a huge achievement of sorts for the band as it was a Herculean task for the band to break away from the shadow of their first track, "Shadows of a bright moonlight" . The band performed live in 2008 March at MCC (Chennai) where Clarence Gonsalves (Joint Family) handled Bass duty for them. The band is currently active working on new material.
