Alternative rock band Beyond Manic from India Asher July 17, 2015 News Beyond Manic are an alternative rock band based in Bangalore, India. It’s the brainchild of Prasad Bhat (Extinct Reflections/Inviktus) and Deepanker Bajpeyi (Floodgate) when they realized their love for Alternative Rock / Grunge. Experiments during composition made them realize that they wanted to open up the genre to a much wider audience and give it an industrial/electronic feel. But their lack of knowledge on the same was holding them back. At this juncture, Madhav Ayachit from (Theorized/Escher’s Knot) joined Beyond Manic.
