Biography

alternation is a bangladeshi alternative rock band formed in 2004 by guitarist Arifeen Mahmood Khan aka Imran and vocalist Towhidul Islam Khan aka Shumanta.

When asked what the significance of the name is, Imran ( who actually came up with the name ) said,

” we explore or love to mess with all the popular rock and metal genre and gather up sounds from them and transforming them into a new sound. which is called alteration.we like to go to deep inside of music.the output of our composition contains the emotions of our life, our surroundings and our unconditional love for music. let it be classical or let it be western. “

To look for the band’s roots, we have to go back in time to the year 1994. Shumanta and Imran met in an arts school where both of them took art and music lessons. They used to live in the same neighbourhood. Even though after 1997 the two of them hadn’t met each other again till 2001. But after that, they kept regular contact and hanged out.

It was in Imran’s house where with the help of an old battered up hawaiian guitar, the band started its journey. Early in 2004 was the time when Imran and Shumanta started composing songs of their own. But the band itself was born in august 2004. Imran invited two of his friends to play the guitar and bass. In 21st august the band first sat together to jam in a practice pad in Maghbazar. Asif was the lead guitarist and Saidur played the bass. In the first jamming, the skeletons of two songs were made, which later became the tracks ” Untitled Conversation ” and ” Mrittudar “.
