ANURYZM In Lebanon Opening For NIGHTWISH
ANURYZM started out in Lebanon in 2003 as a music project between college friends; and in just under a year, the band had already played a couple of local festivals & begun recording their first demo. But the process became challenging since founder/lead guitarist John Bakhos moved overseas; and it took another turn to the worst when rhythm guitarist Bernard passed away in 2005. This news brought the band to a halt.
Over time, John focused on his songwriting and eventually moved to Canada in 2007 to revive ANURYZM; but after slow progress, he decided to move back to his childhood city Abu Dhabi in 2010. He immediately joined forces with his old high-school band mate/vocalist Nadeem Bibby, and invited renowned drummer Martin Lopez to perform on the album. After hiring more musicians to complete the line-up, the long-awaited debut album ‘Worm’s Eye View’ was finally released in late 2011. Many performances later, the band saw a few line-up changes. They finally settled with Imad Dahleh on drums, Jay Jahed on keys, and Rany Battikh on bass.
To date, the band has performed extensively in the local & regional scenes, including the Dubai Rock Fest and the Byblos International Festival. They have also shared the stage with legendary artists, from the likes of Black Sabbath, Avenged Sevenfold, Yngwie Malmsteen, Nightwish, Epica, Dark Tranquillity, and more. With the drive to produce quality progressive metal music, ANURYZM are currently in the studio working on their next opus All Is Not For All. Anuryzm’s long-awaited album is set to be released in 2015.
