Frontman Denny Hussein told us, the concert will showcase another six fellow well-established metal units from Jakarta to accompany REAX rocking the party. They are Corporation of Bleeding, End of Journey, Dirty Jokes, Godzilla, Protest and Rigid.

Death metal veteran Corporation of Bleeding will promote their latest promotional CD labeled Sample Track Album “Beautiful Death” (released on April 20, 2017 by Brutal Infection Records), in the dawn of their next album release.

The trio, consists of frontman Porry Chaesar, bassist Chimenz and guitarist Reno, had released two albums Blood Feast (1996) and Beautiful Death (2015) since its inception in 1994.

Renowned thrash metal unit from Jagakarsa, South Jakarta, Dirty Jokes will thrash Grand Charly with songs from their 2016 EP Envy. The band was established in 1998, now consists of Andi Thrashman (guitar/vocals), Indy Chairil (guitars), Rsdi Effendy (bass) and Rizky Alfiansyah (drums).

Jakarta-based brutal death metalller Godzilla will sport tunes from their full-length albums Permanent Insane on Disfigure Governments Mindless Ulcerate Decision (2000) and In Absentia (2010). The now-trio band, founded in 1993, is survived by Avip (bass), Novan (drums) and  Chandra (guitars).

*Update: On April 26, 2017 Denny Hussein informed us Godzilla has called off their date in the party due to vocalist issue. Tangerang-based death metal band Atrocious replaces Godzilla in the event roster.

Atrocious was founded in 2012 by guitarist Anton Setyo, now consists of Eka Pratama a.k.a Okka (vocals), Anton Setyo (guitars), Abbi Mohas (bass), and Selvianus a.k.a Iboy Coolant (drums).
