Lebanon has a great rock and metal scene. Since the 90s their scene emerged with all metal subgenres and growing. And finally today they have their only female thrash metal in Lebanon – and maybe the Middle East? – We talked with the girls, had a little chat to know more about them, about the band and what are they hiding in their agenda…

Ah, Barcelona! This country is loaded with Metal acts, Kilmara is a rising Melodic Heavy Metal act from Spain, as they describe themselves. They’ve been around since 2003, and produced 3 demos and 3 full-lengths, in which we reviewed their latest album Love Songs and Other Nightmares which you can read here and a lyric video released from the same album, entitled ‘Time Flies’ where you can read about here. We gathered with them and had a short fun interview to know more about them, their music and their future plans.

United & Strong are a hardcore metal band from Germany, have been making music for over 15 years, gathering a wide, loyal fan-base and growing recognition which led them to the Warped Tour 2016. They've been playing a few gigs here and there as well as writing new music after which they released their demo in 2008, a full-length album titled Transit in 2009 and Welcome to Coma City in 2011. Last month, United & Strong came to Morocco as a part of their tour on the 14th, 16th, & 17th of April where I was fortunate enough to meet them and have a quick interview with them about their history, their musical influences, and where they stand in the hardcore scene.

Spain! Famous for their awesome Mediterranean beaches, Flamenco dance, and rock bands! We reached the guys from Alustyza and had a fun interview with them. They are a five piece indie-rock band originally formed back in 2009; since then they have taken on new band members and now the full line-up consists of:

Al Azif is one of the most popular bands in Egyptian metal scene; their riffs and tracks attract lots of Egyptian metalheads. In addition, their tracks have conquered African Metal charts. Last year, Al Azif put on one of their strongest performances ever in the latest Walls of Death. Few months ago, Nader Sadek announced a new concert called Masters of the Middle East featuring five bands: Inquisition, Perversion, Smouldering in ForgottenNader Sadek and Al Azif. The concert faced several problems besides disapproval from the Egyptian bands, the organizers and the fans, as they rejected the presence of a band like Inquisition in Egypt, because of their lyrical themes, which are against the Egyptian nature. Many bands posted announcements to express their anger and objection. Weeks ago, Al Azif band announced that they wouldn’t participate in this concert because of many reasons, which would be revealed soon. Also, Nader Sadek changed the date and the place of the concert without any declaration. In addition, he and the other bands left the concert without any announcement. So instead of five bands on the ticket, just two performed. Today we have an interview with Al Azif to comment on this tragic event. 

Linus Klausenitzer a bassist and songwriter for Alkaloid, NonEuclid and Obscura. We talked with him about the latest Obscura record, Akróasis, as well as his plans for his other projects with Alkaloid and NonEuclid, his role as a songwriter and how Obscura has become such a popular band in the underground metal scene.

Smouldering In Forgotten are famous for their extreme music that is mixed with some Arabian tunes. So far, they only have album released which is I, Devour that was released back in 2010. We met with the band to have a casual chitchat with them and to know more about their upcoming plans.

Recently, we’ve reviewed an interesting EP by the Swedish band Velvet Insane titled ‘Breakout of Eden’, and we absolutely loved it - check it out here. The band started in 2013 and has been restless even since. They had a successful tour in Australia, are still on tour while hunting for a record label to put out their first full-length album. We’ve had a chance to sit and interview the band.
