POWER SERGE BIOGRAPHY

Back to Main...


A masterpiece of modern Thrash Metal in Bangladesh where Guitars rip, drums pound, bass thunders and lyrics resonate as the group of five soars from Dhaka, Bangladesh to be defined as the Powerhouse of Dhaka – POWERSURGE!!! It is a glittering explosion of neck-snapping riffs, grandiose melodious choruses and outstanding musicianship from all five members of the band. And with good reason; to witness Powersurge live is to understand both their unique internal chemistry with savage thrash intricacy and riffage and the undeniable bond that the band shares with its audience which ultimately crashes HEAD FIRST into bludgeoning head banging. With a performance that has been honed and strengthened through all over the country, Powersurge are touted by many as the most energetic live band in Bangladesh Metal.

In January 2006, SAIMUM HASAN NAHIAN aligned with Drummer Samiul Islam to form a thrash metal band from various American and German thrash/heavy influences. After the initial forming, the band had settled the other members by March 2006 starting with JAMSHED CHOWDHURY who delivers a hitherto unheard depth and maturity with his throats. NAHIAN and his six-string counterpart SAMIR HAFIZ KHAN have reached a new plateau of blurred-finger brilliance, with instantly memorable riffs and ear-searing fret-melting solos where Samir delivers the divine melodious licks. AREFIN AHMED SAEED joined as the bassist. The band immediately started performing in underground shows, where they were gaining rapid popularity because of their aggressive style and vicious stage acts. The underground crowds were overwhelmed and accepted Powersurge’s Thrash dominion for their rock solid performances and song qualities. In the mid 2006 Powersurge had their 1st single “Durboddho Monushotto” released in a mixed band compilation album “Underground”, where the song itself was much more of an experimental track apart from the Powersurge thrash style. Now, the band was getting forward with seemly success in the underground gigs, while the huge was yet to come. In 2011, Samiul Islam left the band for personal reasons while Kawser Ahmed PERVEZ is the new bassist for Powersurge.

In 2007 with Powersurge became the Champions of GrameenPhone DRockstars2, a nation-wide battle of the bands competition. The band was now an icon in both the underground and mainstream scenes. This was also fulfilling the sole motto of the band- that is to build a firm and solid spot for Thrash metal music in Bangladesh. Now, after achieving the ultimate success in earning a massive number of fans who would never miss a Powersurge show.

Powersurge has released its first full length album titled "Auprostut Juddho" on September 2008 . And it has been very much apprehended which created a milestone in the history of Bangladesh by creating Thrash Metal Music a major part of the Bangladeshi Music. It's an obscenely brave and ambitious end to a glorious collection of songs that seems destined to cement Powersurge's reputation as the heaviest, sharpest, smartest and hardest working band of their new generation. And the most precious asset of the band – THE FANS are ready to bang their fucking head against the stage until it bleeds and sing along with the crowd-rousing chorus lines of POWERSURGE!
