With intentions to create atmospheric, experimental and dynamic music, Stairs Of Cirith has just started getting involved in the local scene. The band comprises of similar aged musicians who have different musical taste but a common musical direction and ideas.
Seeing a good platform to perform in, they entered the 5th KCM Music Competition. They not only came first in the initial round, but also won the competition. The band was very much appreciated for their originality and the dynamic nature of their compositions. After this big break, SOC has been actively involved in the ktmROCKS scene playing in the Underground Uproar IV and Scene: Unseen.
The entire band was lifted when they performed ‘Sano Prakash’ with the incredible Sunny Tuladhar (Shadows, ex- Atomic Bush/Elysium). Psychologically lifted with such moments, the band has been concentrating on creating dramatic, virtuoso, progressive, yet heavy music. As the individual members draw influences from many genres of music, their main focus is to write materials that bring together all their influences and form a unique sound.
Favourite Local Band: Atomic Bush, Karmaavalanche, Baking Space Cake, Lost Oblivion, Vhumi, Ushmaweg, The Time.
