Corpus Java will rock Bekasi Power Fest with vigorous set list from their debut full-length album Chapter One: Forbidden Gate, released in April 2017 by power/thrash metal exclusive label The Interlude Records.

The Cirebon-based power metal act will jam together onstage with Jakarta’s metal veteran Umbra Mortis’ guitarist Ukay Mortis, along with JikunSprain’s frontman Koko Sasongko, and Crystal Dream’s frontwoman Agnes Meghan.

The band was founded in 2015. Current line up comprises Oyif Eduardo Falashi (vocals), Eddy Silva (guitars), Panji Chandra (guitars), Abel (bass), Sandy (keyboards) and Sugandi (drums).

Crystal Dream, another Interlude Records’s artist who listed in the festival roster, just re-released their 2016 sophomore full-length album Reaching the Dream in digital format last June, while their third album is on recording process, scheduled to be released in near future.

Agnes Meghan’s divine voice in previous records, and the band’s exuberant playing, assure the forthcoming album will narcotize power metal music aficionados.

Crystal Dream was founded in 2006 in North Jakarta as Letter from Within. The band dropped Letter from Within a year later and adopted the current name. Although the band has undergone several changes in its lineup,  two original members Imam Agustine Ferdinand (drums) and Rudi ‘Asen’ Sentosa (guitars) remains together along with current band mates Bobby Angga Lesmana (keyboards), Agnes Meghan (vocals), and Ian Gonya (bass).

To date, the band has self-released two full-length albums Diary of Fallen Angel (2013) and Reaching the Dream (2016).
