After br00tal rock acts like the Backstreet Boys and Richard Marx headlined Rock in India 2010, the festival created quite a reputation for itself. The tremendous pressure to live up to its name has resulted in a slightly better fitting lineup this time – metal giants Testament and Slayer are slated to headline the event this October (the event promoters are still to confirm). This will come as a relief to baffled fans who were, by now, expecting RII’s next move to be the Pussycat Dolls (from a comment by ‘Pissed of rocker’).

Meanwhile, here’s an interesting website we found while idly wasting time on the interwebs researching this article.
