Thrash/Death Metal from Lebanon

When it comes to the brutal side of the Lebanese metal scene, InnerGuilt have definitely reserved their spot there. Known before as Tristmoon, and after a shift in style with a slight lineup modification, they changed their name to InnerGuilt, the band that achieved a quite solid reputation in the Death Metal realm among their fans.

SVENGALI – (UAE) formed in 2013


Metal from Dubai

The Metal band from Dubai that has got the scene on its edge. Since their inception, Svengali have been doing a lot of Noise in the Middle Eastern scene. The band was formed by known musicians living in the UAE who created a style of their own, mixing rock and metal styles, giving their sound a unique taste. It didn’t take them much time to cross the UAE borders and perform in Turkey and Lebanon.

PULL BOX – (UAE) formed in 2009

The 5-piece band has been gaining a lot of reputation in the last few years. Their last appearance was supporting Dimlight in Dubai.

This will be a MASSIVE  pure steel event, with 4 of the best Metal bands in the Middle East covering a range of Metal sub-genres, from Doom and Thrash to Death and what we would simply call METAL. Be There, Be Many, and LET’S RISE WITH THE SCENE \\m//
