Take 5 With SaneSirens

1- How has your music evolved since you first began playing music until now?

Many factors play a role in our musical evolution since we first started playing together. Emerging as a university band had the biggest impact on us refining our stage show because we were faced with very tough crowds that listened mostly to Arabic music, thus we didn’t hit them at first with the all-out metal tunes. Nevertheless, and after many lineup changes, we stayed true to heavy metal and we continued covering legendary bands including mainly Iron Maiden and Black Sabbath hence their influence can be felt in our first EP album entitled “A Cry For Sanity” which will be released on the 29th of June.

2- What has been your biggest challenge as a band? Have you been able to overcome that challenge? If so how?

Our biggest challenge was finding the resources to get our music heard and our message delivered. As a Lebanese local band, finding opportunities to reach our goals does not come at ease, yet we persevered and played many shows in order to be able to self-fund our musical projects.

Another big challenge was finding and retaining members who are true to the craft and are willing to commit and compromise for us to deliver our music in the best ways, and this problem took its toll on the band as it had its fair share of lineup changes.

Take 5 With SaneSirens

3- What’s your ultimate direction for your band? Are you seeking fame and fortune?

We seek to deliver a message of hope and change especially regarding the Lebanese deteriorating situation through our words and music. If fame and fortune come along the way, it will definitely help in our goal. It’s been a fun ride during the entirety of our journey, we made great memories together and hopefully left a mark on some people. We want to be able to continue releasing music and do what we do.

4- What advice do you have for people who want to form their own bands?

To the fellow musicians wanting to form a band, the best advice is to ensure the success of the band to be committed fully in order not to break when faced with the smallest of obstacles. A band needs a lot of time and dedication so wisely choose the people you want to share your greatest of memories with. 

5- How much are you looking forward to perform during Metal United Word Wide on June 15th at the Palace Beirut?

We are pleasured to take part in the Metal United Word Wide, a global event that ensures every year the place of our beloved capital city on the global metal map. Moreover, this is our first encounter with the metal community in Beirut for we are a North Governate based band, and we are looking forward to performing in front alongside amazing bands and in front of a great crowd.

We will be playing a couple of metal anthems especially dedicated to this event alongside some tracks of our upcoming EP.

Take 5 With PHENOMY

  1. How has the music evolved since you first began playing music until now?

    There’s always new ideas when it comes to music composition. The first album, Once And For All, was mainly influenced by the bands we used to listen to when we started (Metallica, Pantera, Testament…). The second album, T.W.O, was more defined and we took some inspirations from Tribal music. The third one will definitely sound different, we are defining our sound in this one, it’s gonna be extremely heavy, watch out!

  2. What has been your biggest challenge as a band? Have you been able to overcome that challenge? If so, how?

    Every day is a challenge being in a Lebanese metal band and being located in Lebanon. Travelling, making deals or getting heard of is really tough. But we are thriving for that and we are doing our best to make it out there in the metal music industry.

    Take 5 with Phenomy

  3. What’s the ultimate direction for your band? Are you seeking fame and fortune?

    Just being able to make music and play in front of more people is what we enjoy doing. Making a living out of it will be all that we ask for. But the whole journey is fun with its highs and lows and we’re really enjoying every side of it.

  4. What advice do you have for people who want to form their own bands?

    Consistency and Passion. Be unique, and if you appreciate what you’re doing, just do it, the rest will come with time.

  5. How Much are you looking forward to perform during Metal United World Wide on June 15th at The Palace Beirut – Hamra?

    We love to stay active and play frequently here and we are really excited about this event, not only because this event is happening all over the world on the same day but also because we will perform a new song from our upcoming album. We really took a huge turn on this one and we can’t wait to play it for the first time on June 15th.

Legion | Metal Concert

Metal fans in Lebanon, get Ready for a heavy line-up happening on the 11th of June at Metro Al Madina with:

Khavar
Kimaera
Nocturna
S.O.D – (supporting act)
Followed by the international drummer Derek Roddy who will be performing with Khavar Band!

About the bands:
Khavar
Khavar is a Death/Black/Experimental metal band that was founded in August 2018 by Garo Gdanian. Members of the band comprise of Garo Gdanian on guitars and composer, Youssef Helayel guitars, Kamal El Khoueiry on vocals, Derek Roddy/Bachir Ramadan on drums and Marco Ghorayeb On bass.

KIMAERA
Formed in 2000 by JP Haddad, Kimaera’s path has helped put Lebanese metal on the world map. They were the first Lebanese metal band to secure an international record deal, signing with Stygian Crypt Productions after releasing their first single God’s Wrath in 2004. Since then, they have continued to secure firsts in their home country, where they are known as the “Lebanese ambassadors of doom”. They were the first Lebanese metal band to release songs internationally, to tour outside Lebanon, and to release professionally produced music videos, gaining a loyal worldwide following.

Their music has attracted attention both in their native Middle East and in Europe. Metal Hammer magazine included their single A Silent Surrender in its September 2011 covermount CD, and they have shared the stage with renowned international bands at festivals across Europe and the Middle East, including Masters of Rock (Czech Republic, 2010, featuring Epica, Behemoth and Annihilator), Unirock Open Air (Turkey, 2011, featuring Decapitated, Vader and Mayhem), Beirut Rock Festival (Lebanon, 2011, featuring Katatonia and Moonspell), Metal Heads’ Mission (Ukraine, 2012, headlined by Nile), Doom Upon Russia tour (opening for Amorphis on the last night in 2013), and most recently after a period of hiatus the Beirut Metal Fest (Lebanon, 2017, headlined by Legion of the Damned) and Zobens Un Lemess (Latvia, 2017, headlined by Amorphis).

After the release of their debut Ebony Veiled in 2006, followed by Solitary Impact in 2010, and the Harbinger of Doom in 2013 (released by Eternal Sound Records, Germany), Kimaera are now working on their fourth studio album, in which they continue to reject being defined by boundaries.
Despite hailing from one of the most war-torn regions in the world in which they have had to overcome ongoing political, economic and security hurdles, Kimaera refuse to be seen simply through the prism of current conflict. They have instead chosen to engage with their country’s ancient history through an original take: Their new album’s theme is inspired by Roman history, with Lebanon having been part of the Roman Empire with all its power, brutality and majesty. The Middle Eastern ethnic instruments whose sound infuses the album also have their origins in ancient Rome, giving the album a distinct aural mark.
Kimaera release a single in 2018 entitled ‘The Die is Cast’, mastered by the renowned Jens Bogren (Opeth, Katatonia, Dimmu Borgir…) and will be performing in ROCK HEART fetival in Czech Rep headlined by King Diamond in August 2019

Nocturna

Formed In 2006 , The band’s style is a mix of down tuned distorted guitars with heavy riffs, epic keys, all in all accompanied by bulky drum lines and topped with deep low-pitched growls to create a unique fusion.

The members are:
Vocals: Anthony Abdo
Guitars: Charbel Kareh
Guitars: Michel Kammouj
Bass: Elie Nassif
Keyboard: Walead Khalifeh
Drums: Sam Baghdo

Sound Of DeGeneration S.O.D.
SOUND OF DEGENERATION is a Lebanese Heavy Metal band that has been around for more than 6 years and been known as ‘RebellioN’.
As the name has been taken by an international band the members decided to change the name to SOUND OF DEGENERATION.
The band plays only originals influenced from the 80’s and currently working on the album that hopefully will be released soon.

The members are
Nigol Ozz Belikerekian( Vocals )
Ossy Mash ( Guitars / Back Vocals )
Hisham El Hajj Boutros ( Bass Guitar )
Jack Elia ( Guitars )
Ralph Boustanih ( Active Drummer )

LEGION Metal Concert V1

Take 5 With KIMAERA

1) How has your music evolved since you first began playing music until now?

It’s been two decades. Everything evolved in and around us, not just our music.
With time, we expanded our tastes and of course we got more mature on a musical and personal level, besides the fact that we had new blood coming to the band every now and then, which made our music more versatile and it would be hard to classify or label it under one Genre.
Our music now has a mix of Doom, death, symphonic and even some black metal elements, and for the record, we started off as a heavy metal band. Quite a change.

2) What has been you biggest Challenge as a band? Have you been able to overcome that challenge? If so how?

The first thing that would come to mind would be the lineup, and finding the right musicians in the right time. Being in Kimaera always demanded extreme dedication, time and some sort of sacrifice.
We changed a lot of members throughout the years, m the only the surviving member of the original line up since I formed the band in 2000. And that caused us many setbacks in the past 20 years, though things have been a bit more stable for the past 7 years, the current lineup is simply perfect.
We overcame that through patience and perseverance.

Take 5 With Kimaera

3) What’s your ultimate direction for your band? Are you seeking fame and fortune?

Fame and Fortune? For a metal band?
Metal is a passion, and most of the time it makes us lose money. We simply do it because we love it.

4) What advise do you have for people who want to form their own bands?

Don’t. It is a lot of hard work and you will probably split in no time.

5) How much are you looking forward to perform during Legion event on June 11th at Metro Al Madina? Are you preparing something special for this event?

It is always exciting playing here between our friends. And this concert will be our first performance with actual backing tracks… something we have been discussing for a long time, since our music has too many layers so we wanted to incorporate this to give it its value, and to have our old female vocals back in live concerts! Pretty awesome stuff coming up!
Cheers, thank you!

Take 5 With NOCTURNA

1) How has your music evolved since you first began playing music until now?

Since we started playing music we had many influences over the years and now we’re more open to experimenting with different styles and approaches in making music, we no longer restrict ourselves into one genre. But overall we still keep our melodic approach since it’s what we’re mainly into.

2) What has been you biggest Challenge as a band? Have you been able to overcome that challenge? If so how?

Our biggest challenge as a band is that all of us have day jobs so sometimes you find yourself burnt out and not being able to progress with your music.

Another challenge is to find members that shares your vision of the music and future of the band.

As always we keep on overcoming whatever challenges we face since we were all friends for a very long time and we are all passionate about the music.

3) What’s your ultimate direction for your band? Are you seeking fame and fortune?

Our ultimate direction of the band is to reach as many people as we can with our music (via streaming platforms or being able to travel on decent tours) and to make people feel what we do when we play our music and to keep doing this for as long as we can and evolve as musicians.

4) What advise do you have for people who want to form their own bands?

Do it for the fun of it, let it be your escape from your daily stress and invest in yourselves to improve your music and your shows.

5) How much are you looking forward to perform during Legion event on June 11th at Metro Al Madina? Are you preparing something special for this event?

We are very excited about this event since we are fans of all the performing bands who have always been there for us as supporters and friends.

We have something special prepared that will please metal fans of all genres and ages. So we hope to see many of you there!
