There is no greater voice than the voice of Music. And with that in mind five friends came together to form a band, that would not just be a voice, but much more.
Purple Blood was born not to fight, not to preach, but to shout out what the common men feel. Our band explores the human mind, fallacies within, the dark corners, the longing desires, the pent of frustration, the dreams, the pain. We look around us, and the magic of music within us begins.Our influences range from the classic rock bands to death metal bands.
We're a five piece metalcore/progressive metal band with member from different walks of life. All of us are divided in thoughts but united in music. With exams and lectures to tackle, we don't have a road filled with bed of roses, but our belief in music and "arrears" keeps us going. :D
Our major achievement was when we won the best band tag at Ragam 09, the most popular college fest in kerala hosted by NIT by beating 17 bands. That gave us confidence and this was followed by an Opening Act for the malayalam alternative rock band AVIAL for Nirvaan 09,a Headlining Act at Nimantra 09 @ SCT college of Engineering Trivandrum and Headlining Act at JRO LaunchPad 09, Unwind Center, Chennai
As a band we're learning, every show tells us something new, every band we watch teaches us something. We aim to reach higher, and become a name in the field of music, and we know it's a long road ahead but we're ready.
