On 27 Nov 2021, Rudra made history by ascending the Esplanade Theatre (Singapore) with three Indian classical musicians. The result was a magnificent performance where two different genres collided to present an extreme metal production like no other. As the music journalist Ynez Wahab put it: "While most metalheads, myself included, are accustomed to standing gigs where we can freely mosh to our hearts’ content, I’m sure none of us at this particular performance, minded the fact that we had to remain seated throughout. All we wanted to do was watch these Vedic metal legends put on the most riveting show of their musical career, and that, they did."
