Nemesis is a Bangladeshi rock band which formed in 1999 by group of school friends. After a few changes in the line-up during the initial years, the band started to gain ground within Dhaka’s local music scene with their fluent performances, as it settled on to a permanent line-up. This earned them a spot in a ‘mixed album’ compilation tagged ‘Agontuk-2’. in 2003. Debuting with their first single ‘Obocheton’, Nemesis became an instant favorite among Dhaka’s listeners which, in turn, led to a record deal with G-Series.
Onneshon, the debut album released in 2005, went on to become one of the major albums of that year. The album instantly stood out and generated a lot of attention with several of the songs proving to be major hits with the audiences. With the release of ‘Dhushor Bhabona’ (2006) and ‘Joyoddhoni’ the following year, Nemesis also earned mainstream recognition as both the singles went on to be included in the ‘Radio Foorti Top 100 Singles’.
During the years following their debut in 2005, Nemesis had been engaged in numerous concerts and events largely concerning social awareness/issues amongst other relevant affairs. Of these, the events well worth a mention: ‘Say No To Drugs’ concert in Gulshan Youth Club (2008), ‘Save the Children’ and ‘Stand up Against Poverty’ concerts in the Dhanmondi Amphitheater (2009), ‘Vote for Sundarban’ concert at the Army Stadium organized by BAMBA (2010).
The band has also appeared in several corporate-sponsored events which include the ‘Banglalink Music Festival’, the successful series of Tribute shows sponsored by BAT as well as many other shows promoting different brands and products. In addition, the group has also proved itself successful in many different club shows with performances at the International Club, the American Club as well as appearance that highlighted Aurum’s New Years event at The Radisson, December 2009.
Along with live performances, Nemesis has also appeared in several different radio and television programs as well as media publications.
