(Industrial and NU metal artist)


It is once in a blue moon to meet an artist who can break fresh ground in an unconventional spectacular way: giving you access to full submersion of heavy emotion that would direct your spine in a straight creep; leaving you a raw feeling of goosebumps; and an eye-opener for numbness and vulnerability for silent monsters. Sunil Dholwani, popularly known as Orphan Freakshow has mastered this form so well that he defines his music as his alter ego. 


Orphan Freakshow, with his silent spine-chilling name, is enamored in the circus of life, carnival of puppets, and theater of shadows that translate in his craft. As per him, his music covering down in the clumps signifies his alter identity which pours out his buried weight of inner emotion he has been hard-carrying for a long time - a journey that is never like a cakewalk. It may sound Greek to you, but the former member of Reborn and Mortal Grudge is clinically diagnosed with depression - the therapy he has been taking in a spacious room to overcome the daily days in a whole piece of tickled pink, is music. 


He narrates his all-encompassing dark story through his songs that manifest far and wide to listeners’ souls - partnering by an unusual loose cannon visuals of heebie-jeebies, spiking everything that runs in his profound wounded mind. Freakshow=me and Filth, his two previously released songs, have drowning lyrical content, defining his distinct and jaw-dropping identity.  The insides of you definitely crave for these masterpieces - at some point, Orphan Freakshow represents your other self that is hidden from the view of many. 


As a new artist of Rakista Records, Sunil revealed that he’s close to wrapping his debut full-length album. Keep in touch, filth nation, as Orphan Freakshow's upcoming tracks will devour you!
