The underground movement in Pemalang Regency is considered as one of the most recognized in Central Java Province. Many bands who play own materials have been lingering not only in the regency, but in other cities and provinces.

A compilation CD initiated by two prominent Pemalang underground activists tells us about the significant development in the area. Consisted of twenty tracks flavored with various genres, the album is a proof how creative musicians from regency which lies on the north coast of Central Java are.

The Grombyang Aggression compilation CD aims to promote the culture and tourism of Pemalang Regency in our own way, said Junaedi from Bingkai Berisik, a label company which was set up to publish the CD exclusively.

He explained grombyang is coming from Nasi Grombyang, a famous dish that is commonly associated with Pemalang Regency. He expected people will recognize Pemalang more from the album.

Juna who plays bass for heavy metal act Monolith revealed the idea behind the compilation was appeared in January 2017 when he and fellow Budi Bondowoso had a discussion about finding a way to release albums of local musicians. They understood the easy way to materialize the idea was by starting making a compilation album first, plus they could find out how many active and prolific bands around the area.

They started a new venture Bingkai Berisik Record on February 5, 2017. The compilation project itself was commenced in March 2017. Juna and Budi contacted fellow musicians around Pemalang and gained positive feedback. Twenty bands agreed to join the project.
