About Band

PuNkH was formed in Germany 2004 under the name, GURU. After releasing their debut album Ghoom with Times Music, India in 2006, the band changed their name to PuNkH as lead singer and founder member Deepak Nair (Dean) decided on moving back to India. From 2004 to 2007 post release of Ghoom the 4 piece high-energy set up toured through Europe and Germany and competed for the prestigious Rockbuster Das Ding New Comer Contest in 2004 and went on to win the same. In 2007, after a mutual disagreement and the bands inability to strike any kind of a chord in the Indian Sub-Continent, Dean teamed up with Rapper Carsten Kraushaar and the duo decided to continue and work on material Dean had written over the past years. In, what was.... short of a Tsunami of Combined Musical Fornication, they gave birth to the Self titled album, which was recorded in the winter of 2006 in Germany and co-produced and doctored by Audiotreatz. Audiotreats who had already produced top-selling German artists like Dendemann, Nadja Benaissa (No Angels), Joy Denalane, Julian Smith and Nico Suave found it an ultimate challenge to work on a project with Hindi lyrics going in tandem with minimal electro beats and melodic raps in German and English. The album was immediately picked up by EMI Virgin Music, India and released in 2007 with the debut music video Punjabi Na Aawe on Mtv and Channel V. The song was also featured on an international compilation album released by EMI Music, France: Voyage au coeur de l'inde [Songs from the heart of India] . Due to personal reasons Carsten could not move base to India and decided to quit the entire project. The time was ripe,for Dean, to get in, singer Robin Joseph to Rap and one of Nagalands most accomplished guitar players and buddy Yanger Sanglir to handle guitars along with DJ kunal, to tease with the mixes , turntables and grooves. By now, PUNKH had toured coast to coast, across India and got themselves nine back-to-back gigs in Singapore, for the Kalaa Utsavam festival In 2009, from where, EMI Virgin featured the song Yunajaa on he compilation album India Rocks, featuring top Indian bands. Well, in the course of the mayhem of 2010, normal Metamorphosis, saw the departure of the DJ and inclusion of keyboards and a second guitar player on power chords. In Early 2011 the Band brainstormed on some of the famed tracks from the first album Ghoom, The nu/metal sound literally blew the new members and since it was still a set of unknown and unheard songs despite a major label release in 2007 it was decided that it would be only apt to play and promote the same. Indias leading online independent artist portal ArtistAloud.com released the songs Karma , Insaaf and Tanha in 2011.
