Stig­mata

roars to 19 years in mu­sic

Daily Mirror (Sri Lanka) - - THIS &THAT -

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.
