Nearly after a year of inactivity, underground concerts are coming back to the capital.
On the first day of the year, the very first underground concert took place with powerful performances of seven heavy and extreme metal bands at Jamuna Future Park in the capital. A group of underground music enthusiasts under the name of 'Culminar Terror' organised the show on January 1, 2021.
Thrash, Torture Goregrinder, Chronicles and Deviant Malice, among others, performed at the show.
"The concert was supposed to take place on March. Due to the covid-19, it was delayed for nearly a year. However, we are glad to see the crowd. For safety, we are ensuring that everyone is wearing masks," said Hasan Morshed Jim, one of the organisers and a member of the band Chronicles.
"An underground concert is taking place, after almost a year. It really feels good, as if everything became the way it was before. The show has been organised maintaining proper precaution, which is commendable," said Javed Hoque, owner of Heavy Metal T-shirt.
For Thrash, the winners of the Bangladeshi contingent Wacken Metal Battle, it a great comeback to make on stage.
"We have a hardcore metal crowd here, so it definitely feels good," said Guitarist Sumit Gaurab of Thrash calling upon the music lovers to support the metal music scene by buying merchandises and released songs online.
Bangladesh Band Music Fans Community (BBMFC) is scheduled to organise underground concert from January 7-8 at Jamuna Future Park and Get Amped Series is scheduled to arrange on January 15 at the same venue.
