|Global Metal Apocalypse||
By GMA's Bangladesh correspondent Nabil Abaddon
This summer will not be the same for Bangladeshi Metal fans anymore. The titans have been summoned from the underground. The sun will fade, the earth will tremble and lightning will streak across the sky as the titans of Bengal congregate for the purpose of spreading real Metal. The Bangladesh Metal Alliance has summoned a massacre named “East Bengal Onslaught” which will take place on 26th April at the National Library Auditorium.
The Bangladesh Metal Alliance is an organization featuring some devoted Metal musicians and activists which started their journey last year with the unforgettable gig “The Bengal Regiment”. This year they are back again with a bigger endeavor and bigger arrangements with more killer bands lined up. The bill starts off with two young and talented bands called Psychotron and Burning Democracy. These bands have been making noise at local gigs for a while and its about time they played to bigger audiences. They will be followed by the promising act Sacrilege, bringing about the New Age of Thrash Metal in the house alongside the bone crushing Old School Thrashers Enmachined who will put up their axes to slay some posers.
Leading the other half of the bill, Homicide, one of the best Brutal / Technical Death Metal bands of the Indian sub-continent will be there to take the viciousness up to the next level. Expect no mercy from these lads. Then up on stage will be the bad ass Technical Thrashers Thrash who are skilled enough to knock your socks off. The show will be headlined by the mighty Bestial Death / Thrash occultists Orator and the masters of Modern Thrash Metal in Bangladesh Powersurge. Does it get any better than this? Well yes it does cause there will be ‘limited numbers’ of East Bengal Onslaught t-shirts for the fans, totally free of cost with the logos of all the bands imprinted on the back. As the production has been kept limited, they will be provided on the first come first serve basis.
The tickets have been priced at TK200 a pop, which comes with the t-shirt. There will be more band merch available at the venue. For further details and announcements go to these pages:
