Virendra Kaith, better known as Viru, has been playing the drums for over 8 years. He found interest and inspirations when he saw his uncle play drums in a classical band. At the age of 14, he started playing percussion instruments like the tumba and conga’s along with his uncle’s band before moving to the drums later on.

Viru is a member of Demonic Resurrection, a melodic death metal band, who are regarded as India’s best Extreme Metal band. In July 2007 Virendra joined the band as they had been searching for drummer capable of playing their music, which is extremely fast and challenging for over a year. Viru was the only local drummer who was able to play their drum parts. This extreme style of drumming pushed Viru’s drum playing to another level, having to play at tempo’s of over 200bpm on the double bass.

With Demonic Resurrection he has recorded 1 album that has been released worldwide via UK based label Candlelight Records along with having toured the length and breath of India and also Norway and Czech Republic in 2010. The band also won the Global Metal award at the Metal Hammer Golden Gods in 2010. In more recent news the band just confirmed their performance at Sonisphere Festival 2011 in the UK.

Viru is a completely self taught drummer and enjoys playing various styles of music and plays with Prayag, Khiladi, Scribe and Sridhar/Thayil. He is currently endorsed by Mapex Drums and Zildjian Cymbals.
