Almost 2 years ago, the U.A.E. Metal scene witnessed the birth of SVENGALI, a Metal band formed by: Adnan (Vocals), Fadi (Guitars/ Vocals), JM (Guitars), Ali (Bass) and Khalid (Drums). In less than a year, they were able to create a hype in Dubai, contributing to the rise of and becoming a significant name in the U.A.E. Metal scene.

Four months ago, Svengali entered HAVEN studios (Read about it here) and started producing their debut album “Theory Of Mind” only six months after releasing their debut EP “Unscathed” check out review from issue 5 here.


The Judgment day is near, as the album will be released in four days across all digital platforms including bandcamp, iTunes, amazon etc. and will also be released as a physical copy through online orders and a few locations around the UAE (TBA).

Will Svengali’s debut have a 9/10 rating in our review as did the EP “Unscathed”? Wait till after March 17 for our review of the album.
