|Global Metal Apocalypse||
The global metal scene has been witnessing what’s been termed as the “Thrash revival movement” in recent years with younger bands bringing back the rawer spirit of Thrash Metal into the limelight. Bangladesh is not lagging behind in this global upheavel. Dissector, as they call themselves, is a ‘raw and merciless Thrash metal’ horde ascending from Dhaka, Bangladesh. 30th August, 2013 became the day that these Thrash maniacs unleashed their debut EP “Local Maniac Syndrome” at the Russian Cultural Centre with a merciless EP launch gig.
“Local Maniac Syndrome” is a self-release and is supported & promoted by Shackle Multimedia. The EP consists of an intro, four smashing tracks and comes with a well illustrated album sleeve. The whole album was recorded, mixed and mastered at G.R.B Artillery except for the drum takes which were done at Studio 2ag.
Coming to the show, it was really well organized and had an all metal roster. The gig was named after the album ‘Local Maniac Syndrome’ and did not fail to summon upon all the crazy Metal maniacs in the town. The line up comprised of Bangladeshi Thrash Metal giants Powersurge and some of the most talented young bands like Thrash, Dissector Themselves, Homicide, Friday The 13th, Exalter, Sacrilege and Override (in descending order). It was a packed-out show and the crowd showed no mercy in moshing over each other.
