So, how's your fasting so far, peeps? So far so good, yes? Inshallah... :)
Well, I wanna share to you this amazing book in which I & Rinsdark were being interviewed. As my previous entry on December last year titled, "Official trailer for the book Labour of Love & Hate." / a.k.a LOLAH, I shared an info about the upcoming book project done by the siblings John Resborn & Lena Resborn from Sweden. The book itself tells about the underground scene in Southeast Asia, from the lifestyle, the music, the fashion till the mission behind the music. Aaand my band Gelap was one of the interviewees in that book. John & Lena interviewed me & Rinsdark [We both are the vocalists of Gelap] in around late March, 2009 [I was still single that time, 2 weeks to go before my marriage, hehehe].
And after 3 years running, finally the book is ready to be released! And holaa...! There I am inside the book! ^___^

The shocking news is that, several copies of this book have been handed over to some of the rocking legends of underground scene across the world such as Max Cavalera [Sepultura], Randy Blythe [Lamb of God], Marilyn Manson, Dez Fafara [Devil Driver], Adam Dutkiewicz [Killswitch Engage] and other bands like Trivium, Slayer, Gojira, Machine Head etc. Aaaakkk!! I think I wanna faint out knowing that they actually have the book! *tari pisang*
Below are some pics about LOLAH articles in media around Sweden

I really hope someday this book can be found in any bookstore in Jakarta. Right now, the book can only be found in one of my metalhead friends in Bandung named Zemo Cabalero. If you wanna buy it, just click the link & send him message. He also sell the t-shirt [yeaay!].
I'm proud. We're proud. After the booming video titled "Global Metal" [You can search the video in Youtube. The length of the video is quite long so it's divided into some parts of the video. One of the video is this.], now the underground scene from Southeast Asia is re-raised up to the surface once again by these two amazing siblings through their book :)
This harsh music & this scene has being my air since God knows when. I love metal & gothic music so much! Let's keep metal alive!
