''Victim of my Anger'' from Kastadyne''s album Eleven Complaints RANKS #1 at https://www.tradebit.com in the Alternative-avant rock genre. It also shot up to #13 in the overall alternative list of more than 110,000 songs. (June 2007)
Kastadyne, a (mostly) studio band, is basically the writer-composer duo of Sheldon Fonseca and Tejas Narayan (TJ). Sheldon is the lead vocal and lyricist and TJ is the bassist and plays all the guitars on the album.
Word on the street is that Kastadyne is ''original'', ''new-age'', ''un-metal'' and ''surprising themes and hooks''.
KASTADYNE: A BRIEF HISTORY
As early as grade nine, Sheldon was spotted with a notebook crammed with ink-stained, original songs. A shy and inward looking boy, he kept the notebook to himself but word of it leaked and reached yet another reserved classmate TJ who knew more than a chord or two on his Yamaha acoustic. Together this duo of songwriter-composer started jamming at TJ''s home and scratch-recorded as many as 40 songs down to hard disk on TJ''s dad''s computer. They polished the ones they liked - with the feedback they got from friends and fans - to perfection over the next couple of years! As one reviewer says it, he was "completely taken in at how your lyrics display a maturity that far outstrips your age. Keep rockin''."
It is from this hefty repertoire that 11 songs were chosen and worked upon for the maiden album ''Eleven Complaints''.
Adriel George, their constant companion and band member (keys) in the early days came up with the name Kastadyne, claiming it meant nothing but sounded good. There''s been no looking back since.

Kastadyne''s influences range from Deep Purple to Limp Bizkit to Nirvana. Some people say that (because of the vocal harmonies we love) we are like the classic Crosby Stills Nash meets today''s Rage Against the Machine. Their favourite place in the world to compose and play is Mumbai.
