Sepultura Live in Dubai

The legendary and highly influential Brazilian metal band, Sepultura, are set to take the Hard Rock Cafe Dubai stage with UAE’s own Svengali this December 13th. Sepultura Live in Dubai!

Formed in Belo Horizonte, Brazil in 1984, Sepultura quickly rose to the top of the Metal genre. With a sound that was as inventive and exuberant as it was raw and primal, their earlier albums helped shaped the sound of a whole new strain of heavy music. The band shattered preconceptions and firmly planted South America on the metal map.


December 13th, 2017 will mark yet another historic day in the Middle Eastern Metal Scene. It has been 11 years since Sepultura was last in the Middle East, and they have only gathered an even bigger fan base in the region since.

Sepultura have released an album that once again reaffirmed the band’s status as standard bearers for heavy music. Recorded with esteemed producer and engineer Jens Bogren (Opeth/Kreator/Ihsahn/Paradise Lost) manning the controls, “Machine Messiah” is also quite simply the most complete and absorbing album the band have made in the Derrick Green era. Thrillingly broad in musical scope but always firmly rooted in the spirit and fire of no-nonsense heavy metal, it is clearly an album that the band have crafted with great love, passion and determination.

Svengali, a Dubai based metal band formed in 2013, are one of the groups influenced by the sound of Sepultura. Svengali have become a household name in the Middle Eastern Scene with their energetic live performances and dedicated fan base, reaching number 2 on the Virgin Megastore Charts in the region. They were also the first, and only, Metal band nominated in the Ahlan Awards ‘Best Live Act’ category. With a new album lined up for release early next year, the band is pushing their sound even further.

The exciting combination of a veteran band like Sepultura, supported by rising stars in the Middle Eastern metal promises to be a very unique show.

Legendary AC/DC Guitarist Confirmed Dead



Malcolm Young has unfortunately been reported dead. The legendary rhythm guitarist and co-founder of AC/DC was reportedly announced dead at 64 after a long battle with dementia. His family, who lovingly surrounded him as he passed away, have released a statement:

”It is with deepest sorrow that we inform you of the death of Malcolm Young, beloved husband, father, grandfather and brother. Malcolm had been suffering from Dementia for several years and passed away peacefully on Saturday with his family by his bedside. Renowned for his musical prowess, Malcolm was a songwriter, guitarist, performer, producer and visionary who inspired many. From the outset he knew what he wanted to achieve and, along with his younger brother, took to the world stage giving their all at every show. Nothing less would do for their fans. Malcolm is survived by his loving wife Linda, children Cara and Ross, son-in-law Josh, three grandchildren, a sister and a brother. While thanking all for their overwhelming support and heartfelt condolences, the family ask that you respect their privacy during this time of heartbreak and grief. For those wishing to send messages to the family please visit the Sydney Morning Herald tribute site for Malcolm Young which will be available later today. The family have asked instead of flowers to send donations to The Salvation Army.”

Malcolm has been one of the most influential guitarists for almost 50 years, known for writing some of the most recognized riffs. Musicians all around the world have paid tribute to him online.

About The Bands:


It is an acclaimed cross-cultural heavy metal band produced by 7x Grammy-winning producer Steve Thompson and signed to Puresteel Records. They released their debut album last year to huge critical reviews, and it was hailed as one of the top ten metal albums of 2016, achieving an average rating of 9.5/10 across all media channels. ZiX are currently finalizing their new EP with their new vocalist and legendary Hansi Kürsch from Blind Guardian singing on their new single.

Last year, ZiX played on the main stage of Slovenia’s “Metaldays festival“, opening for Testament, Dark Funeral, and Fleshgod Apocalypse, among many others.

ZiX will perform at Metro with this lineup: Tony Ghanem as guest vocalist, Ziad Al Alam on drums,  Ziad Bardawil on bass, Walid Al Awar on Guitars.



DeathTone is a melodic death metal band. They’re well known for their ear-piercing melodies, fast-paced technical riffing, and the intensity they bring to the stage.

DeathTone are: Anwar Habib (Lead guitar/Lead vocals), Charbel Saade (Bass), and Joe Nassar (Drums).


Prominence is a fresh new band formed by drummer Jack Khamo. Consisting of 5 members, the band play a variety of Melodic Death/Death Metal in addition to their own blasting material. The band are currently working on their first album. Prepare for some serious headbanging and moshing!


Apathia is a northern Lebanese band that covers Lamb of God. After they split up with Through a Dead Society, they were formed and Through a Dead Society kept on the Metalcore style.


FreeFall is a relatively new promising Metal band in the Lebanese scene formed in early 2016 by vocalist Majd El Roumy. The band has a unique sound with clean vocals and heavy melodic riffs. The band covers a variety of bands, from Killswitch Engage to BFMV, SOAD, Breaking Benjamin, and more.

Uriah Heep Live at the Secret Garden

Roxx Events presents iconic rock band Uriah Heep, who will perform live, on the 10th of November 2017, at the Secret Garden, Jumeriah Creekside Hotel, Dubai. The concert will also feature an opening performance by Carl & the Reda Mafia.

Biography of Uriah Heep:

Uriah Heep is an English rock band formed in London in 1969. Widely regarded as one of the most influential rock acts of the early 1970s, Uriah Heep’s distinctive music has always featured massive keyboard sounds, strong vocal harmonies and great guitar riffs.

Their repertoire features hits created over five decades, from the 70s through to the present day, including classics such as “Gypsy”, “Easy Livin’”, “July Morning” and “Lady in Black”. The latter has been number 1 in Germany on no less than 3 occasions.

Uriah Heep continue to take their live show all over the globe, bringing with them a celebration of killer tunes and virtuoso performances, exciting fans old and new.

Beginning in September 2016 and continuing throughout 2017, many of the band’s seminal albums will undergo an extensive reissue programme, curated by band founder Mick Box.

Opening Band – Carl & The Reda Mafia:

Award winning Carl & The Reda Mafia is a UAE based Funk/Rock band. Started in 2014 and released their first album “What the?” in 2016.

Opened for Bon Jovi in 2015 and they have secured titles like “Band of Year 2015” – Infusion Magazine & “Band of the year 2016” – Hype Magazine. They were also chosen by iTunes as “Best New act of the Month”.

What do you get when an Indian Rock n Roll singer meets an Egyptian Funk and Blues guitarist? Besides the plethora of food that’s going to be ordered – You get a music making machine that’s fiercely unstoppable.

In a land and a time were funk and blues are words that rarely get tossed around, these two maniacs decided to revive the genre with “Carl & The Reda Mafia.” Abimbola (A.K.A Bimbo The Drummer) from Nigeria, who was on the verge of giving up on music, joined the scene after countless failed attempts with metal bands and the like.

The 3 then became 4 when Chris (A.K.A Uncle Bass ) joined the band and after one jam session had this to say “Ok Kids, I think we have something special here “ . And there was no turning back.
Carl & Reda compose music that they hope will make a mark on the musical universe of the 21st century. With songs ranging from funk and blues rock to rock n’ roll, Carl & The Reda Mafia plan to revisit, if not reincarnate, the golden era of music.
