Pepsi Battle of the Bands has been a refreshing treat for rock music lovers across Pakistan.
And it just gave us the best thing ever.
Fawad Khan is set to rock the stage with Entity Paradigm (eP)
A photo recently surfaced that shows eP on stage doing a sound check. Which means that eP is probably going to perform on the grand finale of Pepsi Battle of the bands.

CAN YOU BELIEVE IT? Cuz we still can’t…
And you know what the best part is? Z(x)ulfi, one of the core members has finally made his return to the band
While the band has reunited occasionally for live sets, Zulfi has been out of the picture. So his return is kinda the last piece of the puzzle.
We also saw Hassaan Khalid rocking it out on stage
And while we can only see part of Ahmed Ali Butt, we KNOW that the ‘white boy’ has come ‘straight from the L-town’
And OF COURSE Fawad is there, too
With Fawad Khan being a judge on the show, it seems something like this was bound to happen
And we’re just so excited that it’s finally happening!
With band culture nearly dead as far as mainstream music is concerned, it sure is nice to see these brothers in arms rock out on such a grand scale. Everyone has brought something unique to the table. You have a band like Kashmir that through its ambient sound takes people to a dreamy state. Then there is Badnaam whose sound is the perfect blend of grunge and Sufi Folk. Heck, there was even a pinch of progressive rock on the show with Roots.
But it’s not just the new generation of bands that have given powerful performances. It appears that bands from yesteryears are also getting in touch with their roots
The band Call reunited on stage and gave a loud and heavy performance of ‘Jilawatan’
Junaid ripped out his trademark grungy vocals took us back a decade. Zulfi naturally rocked the hell out of the six string with his in your face riffage.
It’s been years since we last saw eP rock out like they used to and we cannot wait
Other than a few live performances on a sporadic basis and a single ‘Shor Macha‘ that came out some 7 odd years ago, the band has been predominantly inactive. And we legit can’t contain our excitement to see what comes out of them getting together again.
Are you excited for this reunion, too? Let us know in the comments.
