Chicken Head is a LIVE band based out of Dimapur, Nagaland. Formed in 2012, they play metalcore and thrash metal music.
The band resumed activity in 2014. Made up of a quartet, the group shifted to playing a new brand of modern groove metal, influenced by acts such as Pantera, Lamb of God, etc.
They have been performing in various band contests and gigs, and have been very consistent in delivering some mesmerising LIVE concerts to the entire Northeast music circuit.
The band's mutual interest lies in creating heavy yet active music inspired by Christian metal bands such as As I Lay Dying, Demon Hunter, Pillar, etc.
