A dozen teenagers and some people in their early 20s, mostly dressed in black, carrying symbols of Iron Maiden, Megadeath, Slayer, Slipknot and Metallica on their T-shirts. Some of them with long hair and accessories sprinkled across their bodies. They are prattling and waiting eagerly for the gates to open to an underground auditorium. As soon as they all shift inside, the growing riff of Metallica’s ‘Enter Sandman’ echoes. Band after the band gets on the stage of this dark and cheaply lit venue, leaving the audience banging their heads with immense intensity. This is an image of the underground metal music scene in Dhaka, Bangladesh.
