Heavenwood is a Dark/Gothic Metal band formed in 1992 under the name Disgorged. HEAVENWOOD quickly established themselves as one of the most important Portuguese bands, alongside Moonspell. HEAVENWOOD signed to Massacre Records and has since released multiple albums and was the first Portuguese band EVER to play at Wacken Open Air. They will soon release an album titled “The Tarot of the Bohemians”.

“Hermit”, a track on the album, will feature Fadi Al-Shami. The vocal sessions for the song will be recorded at Haven Studio in Dubai by Hadi Sarieddine, the founder of Benevolent.

A Palestinian musician residing in Dubai, Fadi Al-Shami is the guitarist and founder of the Doom Death metal band Aramaic as well as being the vocalist and rhythm guitarist of Chalice of Doom, also a Doom Death metal band. He is a past member of Svengali.

In addition, Fadi Al-Shami has released an amazing cover of Killswitch Engage’s The Arms of Sorrow, which you can check out below.

All in all, this is a big accomplishment for Fadi and the ever-rising UAE scene.
