NAMING one’s debut album New Wave of Singaporean Heavy Metal might come across as a tad arrogant and pompous to some.
But to hard-hitting homegrown outfit Skullmania, the bold title is simply an indication of their unstoppable ambition.
"There are so many American and European bands who've done great music and flown their countries' flags high in the process. We want to do the same," said 21-year-old drummer Amin Amran, in a phone interview with LOUD.
"Metal hasn’t really been prominent in Singapore over the last few years... Hopefully, with our new original material, we can bring metal back into Singapore."
