RESTLESS


BIO: The Show must Go On.... Biography Restless, sebuah perjalanan mimpi yang menjadi kenyataan. Telah lama Dani bermimpi untuk membuat sebuah band dengan format baru. Format yang tidak biasa dan memang terbilang baru di dunia musik undergrond, Dani menginginkan sebuah band dengan vokal wanita dengan dasar musik rock metal yang berasaskan riff guitar seperti musik Thrash/Heavy Metal yang agak bermelodi redup. Jenis kita kenal sekarang dengan aliran jenis Gothic Metal. Dalam perjalanan bermusik yang juga sebagai drummer Jasad, Dani mencari rekan yang bisa membangun mimpinya. Pada tahun 1995, Dani menemukan orang yang bisa diajak bekerjasama dalam proyeknya dengan Shule (eks Gitaris Sacrilegious, Sonic Torment dan Bedebah). Bersama Shule, Dani menemukan kecocokan sehingga bersepakat merekrut personil lainnya yaitu Abet (Drummer) disusul oleh Hani (Bassist eks Sacrilegious). Setelah konsep dasar bermusik didapat, lahir nama Restless yang merupakan nama lamunan Dani, setiap dia merenung seorang diri. Pada saat bersamaan Ujungberung Scene membentuk proyek besar dan fenomenal yang berawal hanya dari mimpi. Proyek Kompilasi diberinama Ujungberung Rebels, itulah nama proyek yang didalamnya berisikan band-band Ujungberung dan Restless termasuk di dalamnya. Untuk partisipasi dalam proyek Ujunberung Rebel tersebut, Restless masih memerlukan personil utama yaitu seorang vokalis yang tentunya harus seorang wanita, seperti apa yang di impikan Dani sebelumnya. Datang Mima yang memang untuk karakter vokalnya sangat dibutuhkan. Restless mulai membuat beberapa materi lagu untuk proyek tersebut, dan single pertama Restless berjudul Embun Suci masuk dalam kompilasi Ujunberung Rebelss atau Independent Rebels. Tanggapan positip di scene underground Bandung semakin memperkuat semangat untuk membuat mini album yang pertama. Seiring persiapan materi rekaman, Hani mengundurkan diri, tempatnya digantikan Dewo (eks Dead of pain). Pengerjaan mini album ini dilakukan secara live di Studio 41 Bandung. Dan akhirnya, Bentangan Sunyi menjadi nama titel mini album pertama Restless di tahun 2000. Stelah rampung mini album ini Mima mengundurkan diri, kemudian tempatnya digantikan Mala (Eks. Choir Voice Geboren) Konsep musik RESTLESS sendiri pada mini album pertama turut dipengaruhi oleh band-band metal internasional seperti Within Temptation, Therion, My Insanity, Theatre of Tragedy sampai The Sins Of Thy Beloved. Pada tahun 2001-2002 Restless melakukan Demo Tour di Jawa dan Sumatera. Setelah selesai demo tour tersebut, dalam selama setahun terjadi kepakuman di tubuh Restless karena ada kesibukan masing-masing. Walau dalam kepakuman Dani & Shule tetap mempersiapkan konsep materi baru. Pada bulan Juli 2002 Restless mulai masuk studio 41 Bandung. Penggarapan ini di bantu oleh engineered, Yayat (eks guitar Jasad) dan Toteng (Forgotten). Nuansa musik yang disuguhkan memang berbeda dengan album sebelumnya. Dan akhirnya melalui proses yang panjang keluarlah Shadow of Black.... sebagai mini album kedua Restless. Keluarnya mini album kedua ini diserta perjalanan panjang Tour Shadow of Black 2003-2004. Ditahun 2004 juga bergabungnya Raga seorang pemain biola yang semakin memperkaya konsep bermusik Resstless. Dengan kekuatan baru tersebut Resstless kembali berencana masuk dapur rekaman untuk menggarap album ketiga. Penggarapan album ketiga ini terbilang merupakan perjalanan yang panjang bagi Restless sendiri karena prosesnya memakan waktu hampir 3 tahun. Kembali Studio 41 menjadi tempat penggarapan album ketiga. Setelah musik selesai digarap, ujian datang menimpa Restless setengah master rekaman Restless hilang dalam pembackup-an data di Studio 41. Kerja keras yang telah dilakukan akhirnya membuat para personil down, pada saat ini juga kembali terjadi kepakuman di tubuh Restless, masing-masing personil kembali pada kesibukkan mereka dan melupakan sejenak kejadian tersebut. Di tahun 2005 datang Kajul seorang teman yang juga pemilik Tru Lies Prod. menawarkan kembali penggarapan album ketiga Restless di Kanna Studio miliknya Om Mail. Restless kemudian mengubah konsep bermusiknya dengan tetap memasukan unsur khas Restless dalam penggarapan masuk studio rekaman. Dalam pengerjaannya Mala mengundurkan diri dari Restless karena kesibukkannya. Walau belum mendapat pengganti vokalis, penggarapan musik terus dilanjutkan. Atas bantuan teman baik di Kanna Studio, Restless diperkenalkan seorang vokalis bernama Sheila. Datangnya Sheila menambah nuansa Restless menjadi penuh warna. Awal 2007 rampung sudah album ketiga Restless dengan titel “Hariku Lebih Hitam dari Gelapnya Malam”. Restless kembali pakum oleh kesibukan masing-masing personil di tahun 2008-2009, kemudian Shule, Eko Dewo dan raga berinisatif menelurkan single bernuansa religi di awal ramadhan 2010. Studio Extend menjadi tempat penggarapan 2 single tersebut, untuk vokal dibantu Devita (Armored/ Terrible Symphonic). Dengan bantuan Oteng Forgotten & Andri Extend di studio akhirnya selesai penggarapan 2 single Restless. Pada 2011 ini Restless sedang mempersiapkan materi untuk album terbarunya. Last Lineup: 1.
