1- Happy belated new year to all fellow headbangers and metalheads, Malaysia and world wide. How's everyone. Sorry for the long hiatus and thank you for still visiting Thebulletbelt. It was cool to know that this blog is still getting visitors despite the lack of new updates and entries. Kudos.
2- Hopefully 2011 will be a good year for the Malaysian heavy metal scene and let us hope that this year we can see more awesome releases from the local bands. I heard that the long anticipated Silent Death, eerily titled "The Silent Kiss of Death" will be released soon. Hopefully the long wait would be of some worth. What's taking them so long anyway?
3- Malaysian Metal scene celebrated the new year with Warmageddon Gig on 1.1.11 featuring a very very impressive line up of Demisor, Mandatory, Damien and Humiliation with a few other bands. It has been a while the last time I heard of Mandatory, the Melodic Death Metal brigade from Penang. What about Damien? I thought that band was just a one off project band and here they are, opening 2011 with desecration of kambings and biri-biris on stage. Let's not talk about humiliation. They fuckin rock!
4- On the 29.1.2011, another gig will commence, Kuala Lumpur Thrashed, with another impressive and international line to cater the Mat-Mat Thrash's dying need to headbang and fist pump. Tandus has returned. Remember that awesome "Logam Maut" EP? Fuckin incredible. Others in the line up is IronFist (s'pore), Infernal Curse (Argentina), Killing Fields (Thailand), Wartillery (Brunei) and few other local acts. Get yourself ready.
5- On the same date, Penang will be hosting a gig called Uprising III. Too many metalcore bands. Do. Not. Like. But on 5.2.2011, you will be getting your chance to headbang to the magical opuses of As Sahar and Samartary when both of these groups will be playing in Demi Darah Dan Maruah Patriot gig in KL.
