DEMO ALERT: Paying Homage to Filipino Horror Films – Punebre Release New Demo [Philippines]

“The Filipino film Halimaw Sa Banga was released in 1986 and was one of the movies that made me lose sleep when I was a kid.  It is a cult Filipino film about an evil spirit living in a jar,” states a member of death punk band Punebre as they announce their brand new demo. “We are pretty much influenced by Impetigo which also pays homage to horror movies and no one is doing that in the Philippines so we devoted our music to the same cause.”

The band goes on to explain, “The last track ‘Shaken And Rattled’ is our homage to another cult Filipino horror film, Shake, Rattle & Roll which was released in 1984.  What makes this a little special to us is it features a segment called “Manananggal” which is one of the most famous mythical creatures in the Philippines.  The creature is usually female and it separates its upper torso and sprouts wings.  The manananggal usually preys on pregnant women and sucks the life out of the fetus.” is an underground Asian music news website created for the sole purpose of supporting our own world.
