Shrap
Shrap was founded in 2011 in Kolkata, India, by Saptak Dey. Before Shrap, Saptak started his journey with the band Antimsanskar as a vocalist, songwriter, and rhythm guitarist. He founded the band with the objective of introducing a new, thrashing sound to the heavy metal music scene in Kolkata. But due to various challenges, the band didn't survive for long. However, driven by passion, Saptak came up with an even more monstruous sound with the band Shrap. The meaning of the name Shrap is 'The Curse' in Hindi, which compliments the style and genre of the band quite well. Shrap has a very thrash metal-inspired sound—a very bold step considering the current popular music culture in India. Shrap has been very active in their local music scene, winning numerous prestigious rock and metal competitions across India and headlining/performing at many rock/metal shows and festivals. As the band philosophy, dedication, hard work, and perseverance never fail to pay off. In 2014, the band succeeded in getting their first demo album to be officially released by their record label (Power bacK Productions) as an official EP. The release received reviews from critics, musicians, websites, and magazines across India and elsewhere around the world.
