Goddess Gagged are a 5-piece Indian band formed in Mumbai in 2008.
Originally formed as a 3 piece called Fulcrum by Arman Menzies, Krishna Jhaveri and Jeremy D'souza, the group eventually recruited guitarist Devesh Dayal and veteran vocalist Siddhart Basrur, becoming Goddess Gagged. The quintet's sound is heavily influenced by progressive metal and post-hardcore acts such as Karnivool, Periphery, Protest the Hero (who's song Goddess Gagged they take their name from) and Architects.
After winning Strawberry Fields in 2010 with just a solid two month old lineup, the group developed a rapidly rising reputation in the national metal scene, even being featured in UK newspaper The Guardian. They released their debut album, Resurfaces, in November 2011 to critical acclaim. In July 2012 they won "Best Band" at the Rolling Stone India Metal Awards 2012.
