Interview With Monzer Darwish – Episode 2 – Metal Bell Podcast!
In this second episode of the Metal Bell Podcast, we sat down with Monzer Darwish, an extremely talented film maker who just released a documentary called Syrian Metal is War.
In this documentary, we go on a journey with Monzer where he takes us deep into the Syrian metal scene and how metal heads and musicians are coping with the atrocities of War.
In this episode, you’ll discover how Darwish had the idea to make this film. Also, you’ll find out about the difficulties in making this film (much footage went missing) and what was the positive part about making this documentary. You can also hear about the fans and critics’ reaction to the film, and finally Monzer gives us his insight about the future of the Syrian Metal Scene.

Today is the day, and the definite answer to our question has been answered. Roy Khan started his personal YouTube channel today and released his first ever song since 2010. “For All” is the song with which Khan chose to introduce himself as a solo artist to the world. Composed and written by Roy Khan himself, the song is a piano ballad performed by Khan on piano and keys, Leif Johansen on fretless bass and GOA on all guitars. The song is filled with Khan’s signature vocals that we’ve been used to during his Kamelot days. (Listen Below)
The song is set to be released on April 1st, leading to speculating that it’s going to be an April’s Fool joke. We searched for the lyrics and Shazamed the music but no result so far. One thing for sure is that this is Roy’s voice, but we will have to wait and see tomorrow if anything comes up!
Roy Khan Releases First Song After Leaving Kamelot
for all the things I wanted to become
and all the things I could have been
for waiting for the writing on the wall
for all the things I had and lost again
for every time I failed to lift your name
in the night
come pour your mercy down on me
for all the things I wanted in my own name
and all the filth my eyes have seen
for hiding when I ought be walking thru
for everything you wanted me to be
for all the love you pray that I may see
God of David
I want to lower my defenses
pour your mercy down on me
it wasn’t you who wanted war
but you won it
for now and ever more
cause you won it over
Roy Khan – vocals, piano and keys
Leif Johansen – fretless bass
GOA – all guitars
From the far flung edges of the stereo sonic universe, two legendary motherships of Lebanese underground return for an epic funk rock reunion. Double bill/double trouble with hiphop pioneers FareeQ el Atrash and indie rockers Lazzy Lung.
FareeQ el Atrash فريق الاطرش is an Arabic hip hop band and Beirut underground cornerstone, with a pioneering sound distinguished by its true-school style, topical flows and live instrumentation. Featuring a rotating cast of the scene’s finest musicians, at the band’s core are two of the Arab world’s finest rappers/producers, Edd Abbas and Chyno, and the unmistakable beatboxer extraordinaire, FZ.
Lazzy Lung sail into town with a live set featuring new songs, new line-up and an even bolder sound. After two self-released albums soaked with stories of Beirut’s streets, bars and boudoirs, Lazzy have nursed their hangovers, licked their wounds and are promising fresh delights for all you hungry sailors.
Earlier this week, the band posted a cryptic teaser video that teased “Burn The Priest” was coming on March 23! Groove Metal masters Lamb Of Godstarted first as Burn The Priestin 1994 and changed their name over to Lamb Of Godin 1999 to avoid satanic accusations.
It turned out that the band is celebrating the 20th anniversary of its debut album with a collection of covers titled Legion: XX, due on May 18 through Epic Records.
The 10-track set includes Agnostic Front’s “One Voice”, Bad Brains’ “I Against I” and The Accused’s “Inherit the Earth,” which is the first single. All the groups represented on Legion: XX are among Blythe’s favorites, especially Bad Brains. Initially into punk, noise, hardcore, and crossover music.

A Goth-themed wedding took place in Lebanon last week and it was beautiful. Goth weddings is not a new thing in the world but it is definitely new to the eyes of Lebanese people.
Last Sunday, a wedding with a different flavor took place in Lebanon. On March 18, Dina Kayali and tattoo artist Nadim Zalloum tied the knot in the Syriac Church in the village of Ballouneh.
Breaking all traditions, Nadim showed up with a Goth Medieval dark burgundy coat, black pants, and Heavy Metal boots. While the bride Dina showed up with a beautiful yet simple black dress, a red flower crown, and to not stay away from the general code, she wore high heels… black high-heeled boots though. A state of art.
The couple rode a horse carriage, and celebrated their after ceremony party at a public garden in Ballouneh. The perfect Goth Wedding in Lebanon.
The wedding party was minimalistic, a celebration of love, rather than a festival-like celebration with tons of unnecessary spendings to impress the invitees. On the contrary, the wedding was clearly designed by the couple, who were focused on the action of being married and having fun with friends rather than impressing people they don’t know. An example that should be followed by the soon to be wed couples.
The wedding cake was an awesome double-leveled black & white cake topped with 2 skulls and flowers. “Till death do us apart”, expressed Dina to a local TV station. The whole scenery kind of remind us of Tim Burton’s Corpse Bride movie. Doesn’t it?
A fairy tale wedding. Yes I said a fairy tale wedding, because the joy that you can clearly see on the faces of the newlyweds and their friends is priceless, and it was done in the best way possible and out of the box.
Nadim & Dina’s wedding broke the internet and the couple were congratulated for their awesome wedding and got a lot of support from the Lebanese Metal Community. The viral story was not all diamonds and roses, definitely some weren’t of favor of the ceremony theme, but who cares anyway. It was beautiful and we loved it.
Congratulations to Dina and Nadim, may your love reigns for infinity and beyond.
