CHECK OUT: Bangladesh Promoters of All Things Heavy – Primitive Invocation

CHECK OUT | Primitive Invocation

From the streets of Dhaka, Bangladesh we bring to you humble attention the passion and love for heavy music created by a group of metal heads who run under the moniker Primitive Invocation. Primitive Invocation started it’s journey creating something special for the country’s metal heads back in 2012. The idea was to come together to start putting on metal shows that would feature both international and local acts in the country’s capital Dhaka.

Through this initial endeavor the crew were able to organize Bangladesh’s first ever show featuring an international band – French band Manzer.

The motive behind Primitive Invocation has always been to uphold and promote extreme metal throughout the country and beyond through shows, a local zine (aptly called Primitive Invocation Zine), and distribution of metal merchandise.

They’ve gone on to host a whole bunch of incredible international bands such as:

Impiety (Singapore)
Funerus (USA)
Infernal Curse (Argentina)
Defiled (Japan)
Riverge (Japan)
Abigail (Japan)
Savage Deity (Thailand)
Kathgor (Malaysia)
Lobotomy (Thailand)
Purgation (India) along with notable local bands like Orator, Enmachined, Morbidity to name a few.

Since 2013 Primitive Invocation has also been running and annual metal festival brilliantly entitled Banish The Posers Fest.

As you can imagine – us here at could not be more excited to help promote our fellow Asian brethren who are out there doing their thing in order to help their local scene grow.
