New Sinhala Rock/Metal Song Released by a Award Winning Band

Nemesis has won the TNL OnStage 2008 awards for the "Best Band of the Year" and "Best Musician of the Year". They recently released there 1st ever music video called "Chakithaya" (චකිතය). We hardly find good Sinahala (සිංහල) rock/metal songs these days. "Chakithaya is one of the best Sinahal rock/metal songs that I heard after Whirldwind's "Wedana" (වේදනා) album and their "Sri Metal" (ශ්‍රී metal) initiative. The new song released by Nemesis shows that they are going in the right direction. Sri Lanka (ශ්‍රී ලංකා) really needs some good rock/metal songs in Sinhala language.
