It was early in 1992 when guitarist Irvan Sembiring hasdecided to leave Sucker Head, the band that he formedalong with bassist J. Sadrach and vocalist Yaya Wacked(a few weeks later, Nano and Doddy joined the band toplace lead guitar and drum spot).

After three years of playing thrash metal from pub to pub,playing in many art festivals of high schools and college,and also playing in some underground gigs, finally Irvanfelt no more chemistry with guitarist Nano. Irvan haswanted a more aggressive and energetic thrash metal of thelikes Kreator and Sepultura, whereas at the time, Nanotended to have a more Iron Maiden influences. In the end,leaving the band then form another one, was Irvan's bestsolution.

So that's the story, in mid-1992 Rotor was born with thefirst formation consisted of Irvan (guitar/vocals),Bakkar Bufthaim (drum), Seto (guitar), and Didik (bass).However this formation didn't last for long time, Seto andDidik left the band with only few weeks of togetherness.Later, Judapran joined the band for bass slot, and thisline-up was where they finally had a success to releasethe debut Behind The 8th Ball. And also, JodieGondokusumo joined the band as lead vocals (2nd album onlythat featured Jodie as vocalist). Before Rotor recordingtheir 3rd album Jodie left the band and formed Getah,a gothic rock/metal band. He passed away in 1997 (?).

**.

In 1998, before Rotor officially disbanded, Bakkar Bufthaimhas decided to leave the band and joined Sucker Head as thedrummer. This decision due to demise of the late Judapran ascausality of drug overdoses. Therefore in the end, IrvanSembiring has decided to disband Rotor and declare would notever reunite anymore.

Concerning Irvan Sembiring, after demise of his very closefriend Judapran, he has changed a lots in life attitudeand style. More religious and all at once seemed starvefor spirituality. This situation is very understandablemoreover he has ever been an assassination target for fewtimes from the unidentified political group which has killedmany social activis, student prominent figure, and religiousleader.

However, his music passion never fades out. Alongwith his mate J. Sadrach (Sucker Head) he formed RotorCorpthat specialized in Indonesia metal underground various artistcompilation called Metal Klinik. Jasad, Tengkorak,Siksakubur, and Burgerkill, are some notable name that everhad the song included in the compilation.
