VOB - Voice of Baceprot
Consisting of young hijab-wearing trio Firdda Marsya Kurnia (vocals and guitar), Widi Rahmawati (bass), and Euis Siti Aisyah (drums), Voice Of Baceprot – often abbreviated as VOB – are an Indonesian all-girl rock band formed in Garut, West Java in 2014. Starting out by performing covers of their idols Rage Against The Machine, Red Hot Chili Peppers, System Of A Down, Metallica, and Slipknot, VOB have since developed their own sound that incorporates their various influences, ranging from rock, rap-rock, and funk rock to nu-metal and funk metal, meshing them into a unique style of rock music which finally lead to gigs at the Wacken Festival 2022 as well as Colours of Ostrava, amongst others.
Since their formation, VOB have become a point of discussion for a host of renowned global media, including The New York Times, NPR, BBC, DW and The Guardian, featuring them in the pages of their online publication. 2022 VOB were also named by heavy metal and rock magazine Metal Hammer as “the metal band the world needs right now”.
