About .wearestrongerthanbefore.

Sekumpulan Orang Gila (SOG) is an uprising Post-Hardcore/Metalcore band from Batu Caves, Malaysia. Consists of six talented commoner. They are Acap (vocal/scream), Adek (guitar/clean vocal), Nazrin (guitar/clean vocal/bamboo flute/cello), Lee (drums), Mel (bass) and Naz (keys/synth).

Started in mid-2005 with 3 band members that are Adek, Nazrin, and Razali really wanted to form a band. Then we decided to form a rock band with the name of Sound Of Genocide. SOG have a very big music influence of a band called System Of A Down. Started the serious journey during early-2008 from gigs and Mel, with Acap joined the band. Then we changed our name into Sekumpulan Orang Gila. Then, we released our first promo (self-recorded) in the end of 2008. Later in mid-2009, Sam joined the club to enhance our front line. Now SOG is better than before after Nazhar replaced Sam due to some internal reason in mid-2010.

Since then, we expanded our music influences ranging from Alternative Rock to heavy tunes like The Devils Wears Prada, Asking Alexandria and Underoath. Since Nazrin and Adek utilizing their music knowledge that they learned in their university into SOG, and then we also added some native world music such as African, Indian and Arabic beats + melodies, Malay traditional tunes and some classical elements like music from baroque and romantic period. As the result, we created a crossover/hybrid tunes that made us becoming more flexible to perform in any event such as total underground gigs, prom night, corporate events, acoustic session and even mainstream events.

People always asked “Why your band’s name is Sekumpulan Orang Gila”. You guys will know the answer after see our live performances. We use our band’s name as our asset during our shows. With full of teen angst, we perform with highly attitude, hyper and energetic showmanship plus creating tight performances. Sometimes, we also bring up rare music instrument to be played in a band such as Cello and Bamboo Flute to create difference between SOG and other bands. Sometimes SOG will having such rare music-visual sets that embark all crowds to a deeper musical journey experiences.

Recently, SOG became the champion of Battle Of Acoustics 2010 at Lepaq Cafe, Kelana Jaya and NAZRIN won 2nd place in KEYNOTE 2010 (a brand new ASTRO reality TV show searching for talented composer and producer around Malaysia). SOG also shared stage with lots of popular local bands and international bands. Soon, SOG will be one of opening acts for EYES SET TO KILL (USA) live in KL this coming 10th July.
