Nils / Bio

NILS was founded in the mid September of 1999 by dorm-high school mate: Jackson (vocals, guitar), Dennis (bass), and Ian (drums). Basically, NILS is heavily influenced by Nirvana. But, the Foo Fighters and Green Day have their share of great influence in NILS.

In brief, after NILS dissolved by itself, in 2002, Ian formed a band under the name NIGHTMARE with college mate. The new-will-become NILS are Ian (vocals, guitar), Kermit (guitar), Beni (bass), and Bowo (drums). And, like early NILS, series of exhausting changes are happening in NIGHTMARE. NILS have played on many events in Yogyakarta. To name a few, NILS played on several university musical events as well as played on various gigs. On stage, we usually played songs of our own but, sometimes, we would cover songs from Nirvana (which is still cool to play!). We would cover Foo Fighters & Green Day too!

After series of changes happening at a major level, the band is eventually called NILS again & it is the official name used hereafter. And, after being absent for some time, when being restarted, NILS are Ian (vocals, guitar), Beni (guitar), Rito (bass) and Mike (drums).

Currently NILS is transforming into a 3-piece.
Hopefully, we can enrich Indonesian music but we will REALLY ROCK Indonesia!
