The English translation for the Nepali word "Saheed" is "Martyrs". Every year, the 7th of Falgun is celebrated as the democracy day in Nepal. The 60th National Democracy Day is being observed today throughout the nation with various programmes. I would like to present this song from the album "Crying for piece" by X-mantra as a tribute to the martyrs of this country on this day. The picture above shows 4 martyrs of Nepal: Gangalal Shrestha, Sukraraj Sastri, Dharmabhakta Mathema and Dasrath Cahnd.
X-mantra's Short Band Biography:
Think of the loyals of metal music in Nepal and you’ll think of young boys and some adult men banging their heads with metal heavyweights like Megadeth and Metallica. And think about the first metal band of Nepal and you’ll surely think about the one and only X- MANTRA. They have already gained a solid cult following in the valley and their music and their influences have also made quite an impact on other major cities of Nepal.
Their first album made quite good impact on the Nepali metal scene. Now with so much to look forward to and new metallers emerging from the call of the metal pioneers, Nepali music (metal, in fact) can start anew itself.
X-MANTRA comprises of Rojesh Shrestha on vocals, Sandeep Tuladhar on lead guitars,Ritesh Shrestha on the bass guitar, and Anuj Shakya on the drums.
