The Lebanese Metal Scene has been going through a serious case of hibernation and the reason is the lack of international metal bands!
It was a very exciting moment when, during last September’s THRASH MERCENARIES TOUR, we contacted Blaakyum, who were part of the tour, to ask them if they would be able to pass a few questions we prepared as an interview with Onslaught. But Blaakyum’s frontman, as well as their manager, proposed to do it as a video interview, instead of a written one, with Bassem Deaibess volunteering to ask the questions prepared on our behalf and to film the interview on his mobile phone. (Watch Video Interview Below)
Onslaught is a band that would “never compromise [their] artistic integrity in any way”. We got a lot of insights from Sy Keeler and Nige Rockett about the inside world of Onslaught. Covering many subjects starting with the then ongoing tour, Nige and Sy explained how important it is today for a band to tour and why. They also shared with us some funny, beautiful, and life-changing stories they have faced during their life on the road; some were weird though.
Talking about their composition and the band’s sound, Nige was surprised that some people are “anal” about what tuning the band can use for a thrash Metal song.
“when you look at Testament, Kreator, Overkill, ourselves, everybody is making some of the best music they ever created.” – Nige
The interview also covers the band’s influences, which start with Punk and end with Prog, the recording back in the day versus the recording procedures and costs of today, ending up with information about the upcoming releases. So enough with me blabbering about the interview, you can watch it below:

FreeFall is a neo formed metal band forged by long friendship and love for music. Their unique style tainted by many different genres of music brings a new taste to the music scene. Formed back in 2013, frontman Majd El Roumi, Guitarist Antoine Saade, and Bassist/Clown Moh Fakih formed what would now be FreeFall. Members came and went, but the original trio still remains, with the addition of Albert Obeid on lead guitar and Jack Khamo as the drummer. The band mixes many tastes of music through original songs and awesome covers of famous bands (Metallica, SOAD, A7x, Ghost, Disturbed, RHCP, Breaking Benjamin, etc…).
