Post Mark, One Of India's Pioneer Metal Band
Post Mark @ Bangalore on 29th October 2011



Post Mark - one of the pioneer metal bands of India is being remembered by fans. In late 80's and early 90's, when singing cover songs were popular in India, and when audience were not ready to appreciate original music, in a country where pop songs(leave alone hard rock) were not even heard by a large audience, Post Mark wrote their original songs and released an album 'Stamp on you', in 1989, perhaps India’s first classic-thrash-metal/ old-school-metal album. They did not sacrifice their love for the metal genre and their craving for originality in their sound.

One of the last shows performed by Post Mark was in 1996 in Mumbai after which the band lay dormant. In 1999, the untimely demise of front man and vocalist Abungcha Kshetrimayum in an automobile accident dealt a blow to the band from which recovery would not be easy as is obvious from their silence for almost two decades.", should have been "In 1999, the untimely demise of front man and vocalist Abungcha Kshetrimayum in an automobile accident dealt a blow to the band from which recovery would not be easy as is obvious from their silence for almost a decade.

Of late, since the news of Metallica, perhaps the biggest metal band in the world, coming to India broke; metal fans all over the country have been waiting eagerly for their October concerts in Delhi and Bangalore. But the heavy metal fans and enthusiasts of Manipur cannot forget their heroes Post Mark – the band who introduced an entire generation of Manipur to the heavier side of music. They cannot forget the hardships bore by Post Mark of being the pioneers and paved the way for all for them. Fans of Post Mark from all over the globe pooled in money through a group called Rock Music Manipur(RMM) – a mailing list and POSTMARK fans group in Facebook, to make Post Mark attend the concert of Metallica.

Today morning Post Mark band members have reached Bangalore, for tomorrow's Metallica gig at Palace Grounds, Bangalore.

Their fans called out to them, to honour them; and now the remaining band members meet again under the familiar roof of music. Whether they will reunite or form a new group, the fans sleep well tonight with the assurance that the icons of heavy metal in Manipur and North East India are jamming together again. Even though they did not acquire success, as the world knows it in measures of fame and riches, they achieved their goal by leaving an indelible stamp in the minds and hearts of their fans.
