Metamorfest is a flagship event series of Pemalang Metal Troops, has been held since 2015.
In recent interview with www.Musik.or.id, Usman Aly from Pemalang Metal Troops revealed the gig was the brainchild of fellow Opick, who organized the first show on July 25, 2015 at Gor Vega Radudongkal. Opick then gathered the metal musicians and fans around Pemalang, and set up a new society dubbed Pemalang Metal Troops.
The second installment was held on July 9, 2016 at GOR Garuda Mas featuring Asphyxiate (Bekasi) and Guttural Disease (Bandung).
Aly who plays guitars for the brutal death metal act Amborsine added the Metamorfest gig series aim to strengthen the relationship among the metalheads and also aim to observe Eid al-Fitr holiday as a “halal-bihalal” or feast since it is always organized after Eid al-Fitr holiday.
