Black metal unit Rusuah announces disbanding after 6 albums in 7 years

Bukittinggi-origin black metal act band Rusuah has sadly announced that the one-man band is splitting up, citing  he just wanted to stop, rather than to “fade off” as the main reason.

Rusuah released a short statement on its Facebook, August 6, 2017:

“Walaupun berat untuk bilang nya, hari ini saya nyatakan band ini bubar, berhenti berkarya.
Album ke 6 adalah usaha terbaik yang bisa saya kerjakan.
Jika masih ada teman teman yang mau koleksi CD atau album terakhir silakan ke label Hitam Kelam atau di fanspage ini.
Tentu lebih baik berhenti dan dikenang daripada layu dan menghilang.
Terima kasih atas segala support dari teman teman sejak 2010. Ada banyak kenangan dan pertemanan melalui band ini.
-abadi-“

Later that day, on his Facebook, Abadi Erlangga wrote:

“udah sesuai genre nya.. band nya udah bunuh diri..
saya merasa album 6 adalah usaha dan karya terbaik yang bisa saya lakukan untuk band ini, jadi saya lebih baik berhenti disaat masih bisa memberikan “nyawa” saya untuk musik dan genre yang menemani saya 7 tahun belakangan.
saya takut jika saya lanjutkan maka saya akan menghasilkan sesuatu yang jelek.
buat teman2 yang udah support band saya selama ini, makasih banget”

The band just released his sixth full-length album Homecoming on May 25th, 2017 through Indonesian prominent independent record company Hitam Kelam Records. Homecoming is definitely the band’s finale prior the suicidal break up.

Rusuah was founded in 2010 by multi-instrumentalist Abadi Erlangga, with musicians he recruited for initial line up consisted of Rahmat Hidayad (drums), Muhammad Yusuf (guitars), Yogi Yordian (guitars) and additional bassist Rizal Amanda Marshushaq. This formation hatched debut full-length entitled Born to Be Death, released independently in July 2011.

In August 2011, as a trio comprised Abadi (vocals, piano), Yogi (guitars, bass), and Rahmad (drums), the band published sophomore album In the Void.

Later that year, with bassist Diana Pertiwi, the band released their third album Last Journey.

The trio came back a year later with album Melawan Dunia, published on July 23, 2012. Melawan Dunia was the last album of Rusuah as a full band, before Airlangga Abadi released fourth album Hitam Putih in 2015 through Hitam Kelam Records, as a one-man band.
