BELL*ANT*TERROR


(Bell-Ant-Terror >>> tu sebutan Mat Salleh...)
Sahabat baik Tuan Sherek datang buat surprise dari JB hadiahkan CD atas ni --- The Best Of Belantara --- (tak sia-sia aku letak lagu/album yang aku minat kat tepi ni, ada jugak sahabat yang peka hadiahkan CD he he) (ni keluaq CD ni, geng Belantara tau ke tidak ni...dapat royalti?)
.
Tak kenal Belantara? Visit their blog HERE (blogroll)
.
I was in in Form 5/Lower 6/Matrix when BELANTARA released their albums. Time tu, selain dengar/main Scorpions, Wings, Bloodshed, SYJ, Search, budak-budak era tu dengar jugak Iron Maiden, Loudness, Judas Priest, ACDC, Metallica, Manowar, Ozzy Ozbourne, Black Sabbath etc dan juga genre lain including New Waves eeeee (macam Boy George dan beberapa lagi, lupa..) Still remember, having heard Belantara's 1st album, we reacted --- o yes, this is the music we're looking for - Malaysian style-heavy rock (that time la.. we're band boys) BELANTARA music/melody went straight to heart >>> yes!
.
(ha ha mana budak SPM/Matrix/KPP... sure korang teringat punya lagu nostalgia BELANTARA ni...)
.
Belantara was established in 1986 by 3 Malaysian students @ Washington State University/University of Idaho - Shuk (bass vocals), Zaid (lead vocals) & Aziz (guitars). When i was in Form 1.5 and Form 2 @ SMS Muar, there were group of students i.e. TOEFL studied together with us. Diaorang punya skill pehhhh excellent! Allrounder, macam2 depa boleh buat he he he... i believe, geng BELANTARA adalah dari TOEFL ataupun batch seangkatan dengan depa nationwide. Kami lost contact dengan abang-abang and kakak-kakak TOEFL. yang baik dengan kami ialah Bro. BAM (orang Melaka, Tengkera kalau tak silap dengan suka tagline - its finger lickin' good!!!). Pls contact contact k!
.
In 80's, younger generation (kami le tu) slowly accepting the Rock-Heavy Metal music and becoming very popular later. My favourite M.Nasir also helped many band/groups then to produce albums. And for Belantara, their albums were very well received by budak U.
.
Excellent numbers from Belantara include Hadiah Harijadi, Nostalgy, Srikandi Di Sisi, Airmata, Kepangkuan Ibunda, Jebat, Jiwa Perajurit, Sutra, Jentera Pemusnah, Dewi, Rintihan Menara Gading & Negaramu Yang Utama. To feel/experience, just click HERE.
