Conception Of Madness
Nebiula Production, 1999
This is the re-release of their mighty album 1993. I've read in some local zine saying that Nebiula is wasting their money in re-releasing of stuffs. Well, this might be an old material but the content is great in all ages ! I remember that I like this album very much when I bought it years ago. Brutal, melodic, technical death metal. Brilliant ! Beside some songs in this re-release album have been added few touch-ups which are quite interesting compare with the original version like track Sinner Burning... . Furthermore, 3 unreleased tracks, previously intended to be featured in Gerbang Kayangan album also added here. These songs are : The Fading Lunar (lyric written by One Barchiel. The song was later used a different lyric and renamed to Gerbang Kayangan), Santapan Terakhir Raja Bersiong (vocal by Dark-E) and Purnamarjuna (vocal by CD Khanzab). Interesting songs indeed. So this is very essential release to be added in your death metal collection especially SIL KHANNAZ fans. This is not a waste as many would claim !

Bara Pawaka
Nebiula Records, 2000

"Bara Pawaka" is one of Malaysian metal highlight of the year. I was surprised at first looking at the number of the songs here. A 10 songs album. Previuosly, news have been spread and poster have been printed, mentioning "Bara Pawaka" will be a MCD release. I guess it is a MCD release at first because there are 5 of their newly-composed songs but maybe to get more royalty, the added 5 cover songs and they can get more payment. After the-hard-to-accept "Gerbang Kayangan", with some fuss and turmoil in the line-ups may would wanted to hear what the band will bring next. Even in their gigs prior of the release of "Bara Pawaka", they don't play any new song. Now the wait are over and again the music is different compare with their previous release. They don't really stick to one specific style but still remain in the death metal category. The music is a bit brutal especially the guitar but it doesn't amazed me much. Fortunately Jaie's lyrics and vocals wanted me to play this CD all over again. Jaie's lyrical approach are quite interesting, written in old-malay language. The other 5 songs are their version of covering DEATH, CELTIC FROST, KING DIAMOND, JUDAS PRIEST and BLOODSHED. Not really interesting but the last two, with Rosdan (former singer of Bloodshed, local hard rock band and also sing for Malaysian pioneer f thrash metal, PUNISHER) contributing his voice is among the highlight of this CD. Quite a luxurious packaging and the design are great. This is the first time I saw a Malaysian musician having it release in digipak and the perhaps the first one in Malaysian music industry. At least they are the first in Malaysian metal scene that have done so.

Pendita Gila
Nebiula Productions, 2000

“Pendita Gila” was released in 1995 (Nebiula Productions debut release) and 2 or 3 years later it was re-released again (including their old demo as bonus) with different cover. And in this version beside the 4 original songs, include 2 previously recorded songs but in ‘twisted’ form. The front cover and they layout of this release was superb compare with the previous one. The result must be greater if this made into CD, like the original plan was. About the 4 songs, they are the songs recorded after they released “Conception Of Madness” in 1993. The music was in different direction, although still in death metal territory. The difference lies on the guitar riffs, which not the usual kind of death metal. Should I say have a bit hard rock and thrash? Keyboard has been incorporated and succeeded in creating the atmosphere needed in certain part of the songs. Jaie’s change his voice (and he stick to this style except a bit harsher now), more in black metal style which sounds great. All songs were my playlist when it was released in 1995 and still are great as ever. And about the two bonus songs, ‘twisted’, I mean remix into something which I can’t say it a metal song. Both (“Sinner Burning” and “Bara Pawaka”) have been techno-ly remixed. Jadam (of GORB fame) cutting and replaying certain part of the song and added with samples, electronic, etc. I can say Jadam is brilliant but I don’t think it will be appreciated in the metal scene.
