roars to 19 years in music
Stigmata is the only local metal act to be featured twice on the Discovery Channel and also on BBC Radio.
Sri Lanka’s heavy metal icon, Stigmata, rocked its way into the band’s 19th year in music at the anniversary concert held on Saturday 6th March at The Atelier: House of Performing Arts.
Celebrating its 19th birthday, Stigmata put on yet another swashbuckling show to remember for fans who filled The Atelier, dishing out the very best of original Sri Lankan heavy metal. Over 200 revelers at this exclusive event were ‘stigmatised’ by Suresh De Silva and his band, who paid tribute to band members past and present and the numerous fans both here and abroad who have helped pave its path to success.
Stigmata was back in its familiar element dishing out unforgettable and an exciting repertoire of eclectic, unplugged and heavy sets, featuring popular tracks that have won the band global acclaim. The band took on the global stage last year when it was invited to submit its hit track ‘Heavy is the Head that Wears the Crown’ to the Asian Music Awards. Stigmata has produced over four full length albums, and are looking to widen its repertoire of tracks and entertainment.
The band’s albums have received international acclaim and often been selected by Webzines as a Top 10 Album of the Year. Stigmata notably also is the only local metal act to be featured twice on the Discovery Channel and also on BBC Radio.
