Unsatisfied with their previous band, Tine (guitar) and Kake (vocal) left Bloody Revenge and  formed a new band named Unsatisfactory in September 2011. They invited Reja (guitar 2),  Arya (drums) and Sancep (bass) to join, fulfilling their keen in playing melodic death metal genre.

The now self-managed band has published three singles in (the link is HERE) which lyrics telling about the reality of life and the invasion of demons into gods.

Front-man Kake told us how happy he was, imagining he would play in this new gig, since Banda Aceh is lack of similar gig.

“Aceh musicians should support each other!” added Kake ending the interview.




The band whose name means “death sentence” was formed in August 2011 by Dopan (bass), Opal (vocal) and Wada (drums).  Robby (guitar) and Gerry (guitar) joined later, and changed the band style from Metalcore to Deathcore.

Caca reformed the band in October 2012 with Robby, Ryan (bass) and Rachmad Maggot (vocal). The now four-piece Mesa Boogie continues playing Nu Metal.

Angered by watching the massive media coverage of Israeli persecution of Palestinian in Jerusalem,  former Nyam-Nyam Cheese front man – Reza formed a new band named Children For Yerussalem in November 2012. He dedicated this very band to speak out the injustice reaction of world leading countries upon the Israeli oppression of the Palestinian.

Influenced by world famous death metal lords (i.e Funeral Inception, Death Vomit, Suffocation and Forgotten), the band has been wandering from one gig to another in Banda Aceh metal scenes.

Datok, whom actives in GMA, told us about the needs to set up a monthly gig to accommodate the Banda Aceh metalheads’ massive energy, then transforming it into some positive ones.

“For sure, the gig won’t be suitable for the elderlies!”

Starting as a metalcore band, Die Violence then turned into one of the most epic melodic death metal bands in Banda Aceh. The band has been bossing almost all moshing pits crowds in Banda Aceh since they formed it  in 7 October 2010.
