Concert Review


A concert, titled “Rock ‘em All”, was held on September 20, 2013 at the Russian Cultural Centre (RCC) in the capital’s Dhanmondi area. The concert was organised by Ashes and was coordinated by up-and-coming musician/songwriter Sanam Suhaini Hussain. The concert bill included nine well-known local heavy metal groups: Stentorian, Sent Men Revolt, Self Portrait, Retribution, Green Army, 12 A.M., Arrows Shot, Radiosis and Sporsho.
James Kabir, a distinguished musician and guitar player, performed alongside his band Stentorian. The concert was dedicated to the city’s troubled youth, with the underlying message that substance abuse is not the answer to life’s problems. The show wrapped up with a vote of thanks by Sanam to the audience-at-large and participating bands for making the show a grand success in getting their message across.
The highlight of the night was considered to be the band Stentorian’s explosive comeback into the Dhaka heavy metal scene, performing a mix of both old and unreleased numbers, including “Awdrishsho Juddho” and “Bishonno Adhar” from their backlog, and new tracks “Bidae” and “Guitar O Gun”.
