Inner Sanctum Loses Guitarist Rajeev Ramesh
Indian rock seems to be going through a fair amount of personnel turmoil right now. Workshop lost a bassist, Reptilian Death’s shopping for a guitarist, Baiju Dharmajan quit Motherjane last year, Junkyard Groove split up (and reformed) and now Bangalore metalheads Inner Sanctum have to say goodbye to guitarist Rajeev Ramesh.
Ramesh, who joined the band in 2009, is moving to Germany to study. He posted this statement on the band’s Facebook page: “I’ve had some of the best times performing for almost 3 years with Sanctum. We’ve made some mind blowing music, done of whole lot of crazy gigging, traveled a bunch of cities and made a bunch of friends along the way… I’m sure Inner Sanctum will continue to tear down every stage they set foot on and I wish the new lineup all the best!!”
The rest of the band issued the following statement: “Rajeev was with Inner Sanctum since 2009 and in a way shaped what Sanctum is today. The band has had its strongest lineup till date and his departure is a great loss to the band. Rajeev’s signature style and fresh outlook on live shows will surely be missed. We wish Rajeev all the success for the future with loads of beer and German groupies”.
The band wasted no time in hunting for a replacement, posting this – “This is a shout out to all the guitarists in Bangalore! If you like what we do and you see yourself playing with us, take some time off and mail us your profile and videos/audio”.
