Khayal are an Egyptian Rock band that had just started early in 2014. They recently released the song Shagaret ElZaytoon for the children who die every day in Gaza.
The song starts with an electric guitar melody that was too high-pitched for my ears. But I liked the melody and it all got even better when the rest of the band kicked in. I especially liked when the other lead guitarist started playing. There was also that special moment when you could hear some guitar distortions that matched Ezz Tarek’s soaring vocals.
Khayal managed to deliver their message and condolence. You can sense that melancholic atmosphere accompanying the music. You can hear the anger in the drums and in Ezz’s vocals singing along with Hania’s sweet sad voice.
