The latter is drummer of Mojokerto-based brutal death metal act Range of Mutilated, a veteran band in East Java extreme music spectrum. The fourth guy Untung Sitanggang joined the company during the third installment. The squad survives until now and active in organizing some local events e.g. bimonthly-metal-gig Black Generation Party; charity concerts; and music shows in Mojokerto’s Car Free Night, co-organized with Mojokerto Police Department.
