About This Act :

SURI is a cult stoner rock band from Jakarta, Indonesia that was formed in 2008. Suri have a distinct yet traditional doom rock sound that incorporates stoner and sludge traits with lyrics typically involving the life, anger, self analyzing, mutual perspective in point of problem solving and opiate.

Name taken from indonesian decent language means "dying" and it represents their experience in musical world. They tried so hard to rectify their point of view of making music in a common way, lyric, tunes and theme. Their proclaim that "We Were gnashing our teeth but Were Dying."

SURI still combines the slow tempos, heavy rhythms and dark, pessimistic atmosphere of doom rock with the aggression, shouted vocals and occasional fast tempos of Psychedelic and Blues.

But they also incorporate elements variously drawn from other sources, including psychedelic rock, blues, noise, minimalism, pure sludge-drone music and more.

Also, despite the unpretentious psychedelic/stoner rock imagery that accompanies much of their work, there is an ambitiously experimental aspect to much of it.
