IMPHAL, April 3: Legendary metal band ‘Post mark’ is all set to take the heavy metal music fans for a rusty head hanging ride tomorrow at Sagolband Sayang Pukri Mapal.
The band is organising a tribute concert for its late frontman Abungcha Kshetrimayum, the biggest convergence of heavy metal bands of the year so far.
This year the mega concert will feature legendary metal band of all time like the Phoenix, Red Devil besides series of vibrant performances from emerging new metal bands like ‘The Three String’, ‘Vomiting Purity’, ‘Lucifer’, ‘Agros’, ‘Ivyllic’ etc.
Abungcha, synonymous with screams and growl, is considered to be one of the finest vocalist and frontman of Trash, heavy metal and folk metal not only in Manipur but all over India during the heydays of heavy metal era.
He was killed in a tragic accident at Koirengei on April 4, 1999.
To honour him his fellow band mates has been managing tribute concerts with the contribution from other metal bands for the past several years.
Initially “Post Mark” was formed in the year 1988 as ‘Death’s Guitar’ with the line up of Abungcha as vocal, Imocha-guitar, Boycha-bass, Ingocha-guitar and Paras on the drums. They renamed the band “Post Mark” in 1989.
Like many other bands of the time, they also started out as a band that performed cover songs but were never happy with that. They believe in originality and moved forward with their idea which led to production of their own album “Stamp On You”.
