The term is used music and lifestyle magazine pioneer from Bandung was to identify the bands that play loud music in a more 'wild' and `extreme 'for the size of his era. And to be honest, the songs played by the bands mentioned above are not the work of their own songs, but to the foreign bands kind of Deep Purple, Jefferson Airplane, Black Sabbath, Genesis, Led Zeppelin, Kansas, Rolling Stones to ELP .

The spirit that brought its predecessors is still struggling old school `traditional pattern ', proud to be the band's cover version! Among them all, only the lucky Roxx recording for their first single, "Rock echo". This happens because they are one of the finalists Festival Rock Indonesia Se-to-V.

Two international metal supergroup concert in Indonesia, Sepultura (1992) and Metallica (1993) gives considerable contribution to the development of a type of metal bands in Indonesia. Not long after Sepultura successful "burn" the Jakarta and Surabaya, speed metal band Roxx released self-titled debut album under the label they Blackboard. This cassette album would be one of the Indonesian classic speed metal album of the 90s era. The same thing is also experienced by the rotor.

After the major local label, Aquarius Musikindo, just at the beginning of 1995 they released the album 'The Head Sucker'. Sucker Head Until now there were already released four albums.
Of such a long journey underground rock in the country, perhaps in the first half of the new 90-anlah started many scenes formed underground in the real sense in Indonesia. In Jakarta alone consolidation massive metal scene centered in Block M in early 1995. At that time most of the kids metal is often seen hanging out on the 6th floor game center Blok M Plaza and at a famous restaurant franchise there. Their activities other than hang out is the exchange of information about local bands and international, CD barter, buying and selling t-shirts metal to plan for organizing the concert. Some others choose to hang out in the basement of Block Mall which happened to be located underground.

Some bands are more glossy name in this era is Grausig, Trauma, Aaarghhh, Skull, Delirium Tremens, Corporation of Bleeding, Adaptor, Betrayer, sadistic, Godzilla, and so on.

The event called "Underground Session" is held every other week on a weekday evening. Café owned by legendary rocker Ahmad Albar is a lot of geeks bearing and rearing of new indie music scene that plays different music genres and more varied.

Precisely in this place, last January 13, 2002, history Puppen `kill 'em in a historic concert titled," Puppen: Last Show Ever ", a series of Bandung band's final show before it broke up.


Scene Punk / Hardcore / Brit / Indie Pop

Invasion music grunge / alternative and the release of the album Kiss This Sex Pistols in 1992 was enough to trigger a powerful tool in delivery of new bands that do not play metal music. For example, the community band Pestol Aer Young Offender beginning their work often cover Sex Pistols songs complete with dress-up and punk haircut mohawknya. Interestingly, the next trip, circa 1994, Aer Pestol then change the direction of their music into the band that brought the genre of british / indie pop a la The Stone Roses.

In addition, in early 1990, Jakarta also print punk rock band The Idiots that originally duets cover songs of The Exploited. Not much different from Antiseptic, just nine years later, The Idiots released their debut album titled 'Living Comfort In Anarchy' via indie label Movement Records.

London Scene
In early 1994 there were around London music studio which became the forerunner of the legendary underground rock scene there. His name Studio Reverse Sukasenang located in the area. The establishment of this studio was conceived by Richard Mutter (then drummer PAS) and Helvi. When growing Reverse then expanded its business by opening distribution (acronym of distribution) that sell CDs, tapes, posters, t-shirts, and many other imported accessories. Apart from distribution, Richard also had formed an independent label 40.1.24 that their first release in 1997 is a compilation CD titled "Masaindahbangetsekalipisan." Indie bands who participated in this compilation include Burger Kill, Puppen, Papi, Rotten To The Core, Full of Hate and Waiting Room, as the only band from Jakarta.


Bands that had been raised by the community Reverse between PAS and Puppen. PAS alone in 1993 made history as the first Indonesian band released the album independently. Their mini-album titled "Four Through The SAP" sold a 5000 tape a short amount of time. Mastermind who gave birth to the idea of ​​releasing the album independently PAS is a (late) Samuel Marudut. He was Music Director of Radio GMR, a rock radio station in Indonesia, which often play a recording demos amateur rock bands from Bandung, Jakarta and surrounding areas. Tragically, in early 1995 Marudut found dead at the residence of Krishna lifeless Sucker Head in Jakarta. To his surprise, his death, according to Krishna, accompanied by the song The End from the album Best of The Doors who dialed the tape in the room Krisna. Meanwhile Puppen established in 1992 is one of the pioneers of local hardcore until his death in 2002 had released three albums, Not A Pup EP (1995), MK II (1998) and Puppen s / t (2000). Then followed the Pure Saturday with a self-titled album. The album was later assisted by Hai Magazine promotion.

A little to the east, still in London as well, we'll find a community that became the epicenter of underground metal in there, Berung Edge community.

Revograms Zine was recorded three times and all of the material appeared to discuss contents bands metal / hardcore local and international.
Then shortly afterwards indie fanzine like Swirl, Thirteen, Burning Borders, and others enliven indie media. Ripple and Trolley emerged as a subculture magazine that discusses trends Bandung lifestylenya jug. Trolley bankrupt in 2002, while Ripple magazine pocket change from the standard magazine format. While generally photocopied fanzine is still continue to exist. He cried in Dublin not only advanced extreme music but also indie pop scene. Since Pure Saturday came, the indie pop or alternative bands, like Cherry Bombshell, Sieve, White Rice up to date as the Milo, Mocca, Homogenic. Similarly, the ska scene actually existed long before the big ska trend. Bands like Noin Bullet and Agent Skins have long carried this musical genre.
