1st Imphal Metal Convention

Come 14th April and Imphal will witness a unique musical event: The 1st Imphal Metal Convention-Metal Age Reloaded Festival. For starters, this event will mark the official reunion of POST MARK. Formed way back in 1988, many believe POST MARK to be one of India's first Thrash Metal bands. Their 1989 album STAMP ON YOU contained not only Thrash Metal records but also Folk music fused with Metal riffs, one of its first kind then. That’s not all- YONSAMPLE, the much acclaimed Kolkata based Progressive/Technical Metal band and AZURE DELUSION, a popular Nagaland based Thrash Metal band are set to perform here. Also, the new wave of Manipur Metal- CLEAVE, SANDREMBEE, DEAD MOBSTER and CHEM WEED F.M will also perform in this convention.

According to the organizers, they choose the word "convention" because they think this event is where the whole Metal community of Manipur converges for a night of pure Metal experience apart from giving a fitting tribute to their godfather POST MARK. It is the brainchild of a bunch of young music enthusiasts called 'Sandrembee and The Greens’ with the support of some fans of POST MARK and Riverboat Event Management. Interestingly, this event does not have any official sponsors apart from some co-sponsors. These youngsters are pooling in money to organize an event of this stature and they are planning to make this an annual event with this being the inaugural edition.

Sam Dunn, the director of the hugely popular documentary METAL: A HEADBANGER'S JOURNEY mentioned in the film— “Heavy Metal shares something with all cultures, a sense of belonging to a way of life”, that after all is proved to be true yet again with this convention. That sense of belonging may well be the reason behind this "convention".
