is a part of the review written by Mr. Faraz Ahmad
an Islamabad based band formed by Khurram Waqar and
Qasim Ali(formerly from the band called Entity) performed
past Saturday the 27th of March at Laser Tag Karachi. The band consists
of, Qasim Ali(vocals), Khurram Waqar(Lead
Guitars), Abdul Ahad(Rhythm Guitars), Mohd.
Faraz(Bass), and Shajeel Wasif(Drums).
The band opened with one of their original track called, “Anjaanee
Rahain”. The track has been composed well, with clever
chord progressions, rhythm, and drum patterns, which lock your ear
and don’t let go. The vocals also do great justice to the song,
and as I found out later, Qasim Ali is a great singer
with quite the vocal range, up his arsenal. The song has been blended
well with a meaningful solo, which literally bends your ears to take
you through its amazing sound-scape. The mood of the song is kept
chronic, with an appropriate intro, chorus, and verses, which have
been picked up or brought down well. Overall, a nice catchy track
demonstrating the maturity and capability of the band.
The band also performed 3 instrumentals, which were composed back
in the days of, “Cocytus”, which was
an instrumental band based in the US. Khurram Waqar
was the lead guitarist of the band, and is now demonstrating his song
writing skills by playing them with his new band ~NuMb. The instrumentals
were called, “Stormtrooper”, “Dark
River”, and “Deepak”.“Stormtrooper”
revealed the heavier side of the band. Not only that, but it was able
to convey the true technicality of Khurram Waqar
as a guitarist. Khurram’s interesting use of
legatos, combined with sometimes shreddy chops, seems to establish
his name in the book of top-ranked guitarist in our country.
