Perfect Dimension is a three-month-old progressive thrash metal band in Thiruvananthapuram. Vishnu Dev, 21, Devan Narayanan, 19, and Balu Premjith, 22, had a mutual liking towards Thrash Metal. At that time, the band which Vishnu and Balu were a part of was in a lull, hence they decided to form one of their own. “We all had a liking for the progressive element in metal. So we decided to stick to the Progressive Thrash Metal genre,” says Vishnu. The band has performed two public gigs and two stage shows in colleges, in which they competed with seasoned artists. The public gigs were to raise money for the visually-challenged.

Vishnu is the lead guitarist while Devan is on vocals; Balu is on bass and Athul Krishna is on the drums. Devan joined the team after the first vocalist of the band, Vishnu Rajeev left. They have utilised every opportunity that came their way to showcase their talent. Their first original composition is in the making as of now. “One of our goals is to create our own compositions. We have finished a track in part ,” says Vishnu, the lead guitarist. Their composition is titled Into the Void, themed on the journey of a man’s conscious mind into the subconscious. Jamming is not a problem for the team as all of them live close to each other.

Their music takes influence from American rock band Tool and a Perfect Circle, progressive metal-rock band Dream Theatre, thrash metal bands Anthrax and Slayer, heavy metal bands Metallica of American origin and Opeth of Swedish origin.
