Demonstealer: This Burden Is Mine
Demonic Resurrection frontman continues to stir the pot
As well as being a trailblazer in Indian rock and presenter of heavy metal’s biggest online cooking show, Headbanger’s Kitchen, Sahil ‘The Demonstealer’ Makhija has also found time to make a second solo album.
Despite the extreme proggy focus of most of it, the real must-hear parts of This Burden… are when he shows off his killer ear for a vocal melody. What sells it above and beyond the melodies is how much he sounds like he means it; a humanity and honesty that command you to listen flavour the delivery.
