SINGHASARI "Kebangkitan Nusantara" (Eastern Voice Production)
Before we go straight to the music itself, let it be known that I regard the music as the most important factor first and foremost. Whatever the bands themselves believe in or campaigning on, I don't bother with and doesn't necessarily means I'm supportive in any of their actions. It's about the music here. This goes to all feeble childish ethically correct feeblefukks out there who have nothing to do apart from trying to be smart but in reality exposing their own stupidity. Fukk you, your mother, and your grandma. So here is the ever controversial SINGHASARI with their "Kebangkitan Nusantara". As what has been shown in their promo, and in line with their concept, they are still well rooted with the eastern Metal lineage. "Kebangkitan Nusantara" even goes to the extent of including various traditional instruments like barong, serunai and gendang into the foray. And it's a smart decision to include them too, since truthfully the music might just be the usual eastern (black) Metal that you will expect to encounter if not for the additional instrumentation included. And that really is the essence, it really is. Stubborn and staunch crude primitive eastern Metal interwoven with eastern (nusantara?) traditional musical instruments. And SINGHASARI attention of making sure that everything is in line with the whole presentation is not to be dismissed. What is deemed as limitation within the music itself is compensated with the deep spirituality embedded behind.
