Neferty a.k.a Bighead hail from the "Paddy Field" (Kedah, MAL) and formed in 1999, they quickly established themselves in the northern heavy music scene. With influences ranging from Dark Tranquillity, Children of Bodom, In Flames, Soilwork, Dream Theater, Dimension Zero and Metalasia, the band wanted to mesh the excitement and power of aggressive music and the beauty of melody and song structure as well as focus on their stage show to captivate from a visual standpoint. In 2002, Life Records released their new compilation album "Bara a.k.a Breaking Ground ll" which had sold a stunning 1++++ copies around Malaysia.
Talk about compilation album, Stuckmusic Records released their first compilation album called "Lust Minute Compilation Album" in year 2001 including 2 tracks of Neferty "My Way" and "M.E.D". In dec.2003, Stuckmusic Records once again released their latest compilation album "Wait Semenet a.k.a Lust Minute Compilation Album" including Neferty brand new single "P.A.L.E.S.T.I.N.E" which had sold a incredible 1000 copies without the benefits of any distribution around West Malaysia. This impressive amount of sales naturally garnered the attention of the major labels.
Some of major label expressed an interest in signing Neferty, but not wanting to sacrifice their creative control left Neferty unable to sign away everything they had worked so hard to achieve. They decided to forge on, independently, determined to succeed and to achieve that success on their own terms. So after gigs and promoting throughout 2001 and 2003, Neferty decided it was time to work on a new record. Both Neferty and Stuckmusic Records realized that their goals of achieving success on their own terms were identical, so a partnership was born.
"Four X Demo" is a collection the best of Neferty songs (2 tracks taken from Breaking Ground ll and 1 track taken from Wait Semenet Compilation) to combine all tracks in 1 cd for the fans and friends which had sold 800 copies around Kedah, Perlis, Penang, Kuala Lumpur, Labuan, Sabah and Sarawak. It is easily their most accessible, but still remains loyal to what the fans and friends have come to expect and love from this band. It's masterfully crafted melodic, progressive with the occasional death metal breakdown tossed in at precisely the best moment possible to achieve maximum effect. Neferty is currently preparing to promote and support for their new records "Relive The Nightmare EP" probably release in near future.
