Back in the day, having bands performing originals was a rarity, maybe for the common misleading belief that Local Bands can’t do good music. Throughout the years moving from the 90’s till today, more local bands have proved over and over again their ability to compose on an international level, getting international recognition or attention.
One cannot but notice that the music production in the Lebanese Rock & Metal Scene has dramatically increased in the past few years, peaking in 2015 with more than thirteen (13!) amazingly Rocked And Rolled albums, some of which were barrier-breaking.
