There are at least three bands called Indian:
1) A now defunct Chicago-based Doom Metal band. Born in different parts of country, brewed in the depths of Chicago, Indian have grown to be chiefs of doom in the Midwest and around the U.S. since their first show in early 2003. Their slow-sludge guitars, demon-esque vocals and mad smart rhythms make the three piece pure sophisticated evil.
Indian's first recording, Godslave, released in 2004, quickly became an underground favorite for doomers across the country. The band names influences as Alice Cooper, Miles Davis, and the Melvins. Playing shows with the likes of High on Fire, YOB, Yakuza, Weedeater, Macabre, Alabama Thunderpussy and old friends Buried at Sea, Indian's live shows continue to grow. Chicago fans regularly schedule late night encores for the band in the numerous clubs they've invaded throughout the city. After having toured the Midwest and Southern U.S., the band released their debut full length, The Unquiet Sky on Seventh Rule Recordings in September 2005. In 2007 the band released their follow up album Slights and Abuse , followed by The Sycophant one year later. Both albums were recorded by Sanford Parker at Volume Studios (Lair of the Minotaur, Pelican, Minsk) in Chicago. In the same year their label re-released both albums together on one CD as Slights and Abuse/The Sycophant. Indian's mix of slow heavy rhythms and tempo sensitive noise create a style raw and pure as punk, but the sound is definitely some of the heaviest, darkest metal you will ever hear.
Guiltless saw light of day in 2011. Their last album, From All Purity was released in 2014 to much critical acclaim. In early 2015, they announced their breakup.
Current line-up consists of
Dylan O'Toole - guitar, vocals
Will Lindsay - guitar, vocals
Ron DeFries - bass
Bill Bumgardner - drums
Sean Patton - noise
