“TUBERO was formed in the year 2008 by Birjin Pakir himself, alongside other members Sirit Ungol, Casket Maker, and other former members. All members were working at a recording studio at that time, during dead hours and no clients coming in the studio to record or rehearse, out of boredom, Mr.Birjin Pakir and the rest of the rest of his co-workers make fun by playing with music instruments and singing whatever dirty words he can think of.
It was when one of his co-workers uploaded one this sessions in Youtube that made him think of conceptualizing a band that will play grind core, talk a lot about sex, driven by rage, “enlighten” people about the brutal truths about life, cursing and band members wearing masks and using aliases. He also wanted a name that would be easily remembered and seen every where, and so he thought of ‘Tubero’. Aside from Tubero as to be the most seen signage along the streets, it also has a double meaning. There is this movie entitled ‘Anton Tubero’ based on a true story of a callboy/plumber guy who poses to work as a plumber by day but is also giving out extra services to his patrons. Members of Tubero are not strangers to the scene at all; others have been playing alongside other metal bands around town. That explains the brutality and heaviness of their sound. These along with other various heavy influences shaped the Tubero. There had been a lot of changes in the band from the beginning but being around in the scene for quiet a long time, Tubero manages to still go along the way and find new members and left their audience both extremely shocked and laugh their lungs out on each of their gigs.
Despite the lyrics of their songs and dirty jokes they throw on their live audience, Tubero has grown a massive support from its followers, anticipating their every gig.”
