RUDRA –  ‘Hymns from the Blazing Chariot’ – a music video directed by
award-winning filmmaker Jacen Tan will premiere at The Substation on
7th Dec 2009, 8pm.

Based on the song’s lyrics and concept, the explosive music video is a

film productions. It interweaves brutal band performances with
storyline battle scenes, created with visual effects compositing and
computer animation.

“It took us over a year to produce this video because of the intensive
visual effects,” says director Jacen Tan. “We hope to elevate
Singapore indie music and filmmaking further on the world stage”. The
music video is slated for broadcast and release in Europe and Asia.

Jacen also roped in Indian performance arts groups Apsara Asia and
Maya Dance Theatre to help with the stunt choreography and costume
design. Props and weapons were also specially made for the epic battle

The Bhagavad Gita is a philosophical dialogue between Prince Arjuna
and his charioteer Krishna which takes place just before the start of
the Kurukshetra War.

Prince Arjuna is reluctant to go into battle as he has to fight his
relatives, beloved friends and revered teachers. In desperation, he
turns to Krishna for advice. Krishna explains to Arjuna his duties as
a warrior and elaborates on different Yogic and Vedantic philosophies.

The Bhagavad Gita uses war as an allegory and is often seen as a
practical, self-contained guide to life.

Rudra, formed in 1992, is one of the leaders in the Asian Metal scene.
Founders of ‘Vedic Metal’, their unique fusion of Indian traditional
music, Vedic philosophy and extreme black/death metal has won them an
underground following worldwide. Based in Singapore, their current
line-up is Kathir (vocals & bass), Devan (guitars), Vinod (guitars)
and Shiva (drums).

‘Hymns from the Blazing Chariot’ is taken from Rudra’s fifth and
latest album “Brahmavidya: Transcendental I”, released in April 2009
by Vic Records (Netherlands) & Trinity Records (Hong Kong).
