Coffee Time @ 1Cafe

Why Coffee Time? I think this the most relax that i attend. Not in term of gig but the rest of my life. Almost 2 years Metal gig choose 1 Cafe but the sound system remain the same. i did not know either 1 cafe own the sound system or organizer take from outside. But the question is they should improve on sound system. This will make our metal scene get some respect.

Second, our punctual. may be it is too late if gig ended on midnight. and it is going for along time ago, i did not too sure why it happen? may be because of the band itself, the main thing is discipline. how should organizer handle the time management.
Latest gig happen with thumbs up where by the mighty metal band; Blackfire came along from Perlis to performed for Vokill 2010. i think this is the most hight light band,
the legend, after 20 years old Blackfire agreed to performed with original line up on Vox by Mr. Azmi. Azmi called
line on that gig as a Azmi and the Gang which is Joe Slaughter (gitar), Rammy Kemenyan Zine, The Ra
ven (guitar), Syed (Bass) and 2 of Azmi's son on guitar and drum. They playing well even those not with original line up. some crowd being crazy with their drink. watch your step guys!!!

The band doing well with Farasu, Hayagriva, Nefarious Azarak, SYJ and etc...

Karl Cromok Showcase

Awesome!!! that's all i can say for both of it.
Karl Cromok appears for his 1st concert after 15 years, very talented and intelligent. Malaysian should know one of the metal pioneer in Malaysia. the best thing is Australian know them since they are student over there. For me the strong element Cromok is guitar by Karl, and when he decide to quick, cromok already gone even those the new album is still released.

The showcase consist 4 part and it begin around 5 pm, 25 April 2010 (even on flyers should start on 4pm). Start with learning session, Karl Cromok shared knowledge that he know and how he played, composed cromok's song. He look smart with tee the Inspiring Moment With Karl Cromok. last part for showcase is jamming session. most of the band member from humiliation and ex Nrocinu, Tight for Cromok song, this is a reason why Karl Cromok decide to make comeback. Without band members, may be no Karl Cromok on that day (Credit to all band members especially Mr. Af'fan coz still can sing walaupun suara hilang. hahahahah).

I can't forget is he still can play same as the album. the solo 98% remain same dude with additional solo. can u imagine. if u r talking about international band, it is ok but for me not for local band. just imagine when Mr. Af'fan (Humiliation) announce to play new song and the atmosphere start with the drum beat and followed by guitar solo, it is wonderful man!!!! after a moment Karl start play the intro solo for misty. hell yeah!!!! credit bro!!!

Band play 9 song from Image Of Purity (Misty and Unicorn), Forever In Time (Another you, memories, I Don't Belong Here and the others) and last album for Karl, Yours Truly (Little One and Stranger).

Personally Karl is motivated person and committed person. He mention that if back up musician can't play tight he wont performed and Inspiring Moment With Karl Cromok Showcase did not exist. Same as earlier wheh he joined Cromok @ Australia. Among the gig i went before, this is the best sound system, may be it because of one band performed so than they can set up very well.

the showcase end with photograph and autograph session. may be it will be a part of our metal history and it already documented it into DVD.

Did Our Local Metal Music Achieve Our Satisfaction?

We already know and listen with the old school band such as Silent Death, Sil Khannaz, Senseless, Kremation etc. but do we ask our self, deep from our soul, why new comers especially for Metal Music, there only a little that we can listen and capable to buy our soul.

Is it because there are not talented at all or we as followers still can’t accept new comers?

Whatever the answers, I decide to discuss on this. I can list down several new comers that potentially growth in our industry. Probably they have they did not make a positive relationship with the industry itself.

We can see a lot of the 1st generation metal band such as Silent Death, Langsuyr, Sil-Khannaz, Vociferation Eternity, Atotorgh and etc have a good relationship each other even they fight sometimes. Same with the Serawakian scene, they have their own community to share their interest and idea. Previously, the internet usage is not the main channel for Metallers. On weekend, they will hang out and chill together. I am not the right person to tell the whole history of Ipoh Metal Militant. But everybody knows how tight they are.

It is not only we unite on gig but more than that. Distributors, band, production house and media must have a closed relationship and commitment more than actual. It is important to get systematic chain between each party.

As we can see, it is too little band growth healthy in our scene. You can count it using your hand. I agree if you say there is a lot band now days. But is it the band tuff enough? The song that they compose did not have a good element to remember.

Psychic Scream Prod and Nebuila Production have a full of commitment. That why the entire album that they released is counted by listeners. But today, it is quick difficult to see that. May be our industry must do some research and development on the weaknesses.
