During this time two singles (Clowns and Hari ng Walang Hanggang Parusa) by the band were recorded. In the end Jun Lim had to go and Waxx assumed the jinxed bass slot. Recently, the band gave in to a foreign band of the same name (Haunted Garage) after years of cyber disputes, and adopted Krear Bathala as the band's name, for it heralds a new musical direction that veers more to Bikolano-sensitive songs, and it repackaged the band's new three-piece line-up. This year, three of their singles (Clowns, Hari ng Walang Hanggang Parusa, bootlegged Kagadanan) were included in the "Tanog Tabaco: A definitive Original Tabaqueño Music Compilation" album, and their newly recorded song "Kagadanan" will come out in the Albay music compilation "Ribok." Musically, the band is hard to define, as they fuse unpopular mixtures of traditional colonial music with old and new schools of rock. Some categorize them as old school metal, like Iron Maiden and Wolfgang, while others label them as prog rock or just plain rock.
In spite of this, Krear Bathala is clear on one thing: They exist only for the attainment of Tanog Tabaco, the mythical true Bikolano Sound. Their works can be sampled at their offical website, www.krearbathala.multiply.com. Read more on Last.fm.
