IamA Metal/Punk vocalist from Pakistan. AMA!
Hey, I'm Hassan and I'm from Pakistan, I do vocals for a couple bands here. I've been involved with the local Metal and Punk scenes for the last 8 years - organizing gigs, writing for webzines, playing for bands, and other stuff. My grindcore/crust punk band Multinational Corporations released its first EP "Jamat-al-Maut" in March of this year and it's gotten a lotta great reviews. I also have another band called Foreskin, which plays thrash metal/hardcore punk/crossover. One of the reviewers of MxCx's EP suggested I do an "IAmA" on Reddit because a lot of people apparently have misconceptions about Pakistan and the music scene here. So yeah, ask me anything!

https://www.facebook.com/multinationalcorporationspakistan - our Facebook presence. You can see my name in the lineup if you're looking for proof (Hassan Umer) and in the page admins as "Hassan Dozakhi" . The surnames are different because Dozakhi is my nickname - it means "From Hell" in Urdu.
Because the mods wanted proof that this was actually me and not someone pretending to be me, haha: https://www.facebook.com/multinationalcorporationspakistan/posts/708210082570241
