Brick Floyd Live At Beirut Open Space | REVIEW

Brick Floyd Live at Beirut Open Space REVIEW!

As we all know, the 19th of January was a busy night for all of them Pink Floyd fans. Pink Floyd’s music is kind of like psychedelic rock and is considered to have some trippy effects on the mind if delved into. Recreating their music isn’t like a bunch of 14 year olds covering “Smells Like Teen Spirit”, but needs a lot of experience in sound effects with instruments, which not too many bands in Lebanon might be capable of. But Brick Floyd sure can. They announced that their show would be held in Beirut Open Space, on Jan 19. What I like about that venue is that it is located in Mar Mkhayel and not on the main road, which means we don’t get stuck in traffic from the beginning of Gemayze street. Continue reading

DIVULGENT | The Anonymous Band Releases First Demo Song

DIVULGENT The Anonymous Band Releases First Demo Song!

All of a sudden, a band page in the name of Divulgent appears on Facebook. With a considerably long biography for a band that just started (read below), and a TBAs on the members’ list, they definitely got our attention.

Who, What, Why?

The About of the band depicts the following:

“We are the silenced, faced with corruption, clinging to survival with no end.
Yet, beneath the carnage a silver lining shall appear, speaking the words that you all must hear.”

Interesting enough, the band released their first music teaser a few days later. On January 17th, they released their first song from their debut EP. (Video Below)

First Release

“This song is NOT the fully produced EP quality”, the band commented on their released Lyrical video. Therefore, we are going to call it a demo. The song is actually a pretty good one! So, judging by the quality of the recording aside, the track clearly shows high musicianship and great composing abilities.

With no time, the track got a lot of support from the local and regional scene, tens of shares and an approximately 1800 views in only 3 days. Checkout  “Techno Logic” below and leave your thoughts in the comments section at the bottom of the page.

 DIVULGENT The Anonymous Band

An announcement today on the band page says that the band will be revealing its members in 24 hours. Bummer 🙁 we thought we were going to enjoy the mysterious approach more. (Read full statement below)


DIVULGENT is a new Experimental/Groove Metal band from Beirut, Lebanon.

Mixing sounds of heavy chugging guitars, melodies, catchy riffing patterns, groovy drumming and bass lines, a twist of melo-djent with heavy breakdowns layered with harsh vocals, talking about the issues that we all as people should open our eyes to. We define the concept of each message we find important, to be delivered with its own special identity. We are able to achieve a very unique sound due to many great bands that have influenced each member. To mention a few, Meshuggah, Lamb of God, After The Burial, and Slipknot have added their influence to our own imagination and flavoring.

Divulgent has been writing its own material from the very beginning back in late 2016. And recently recorded a Demo CD in order for people to know what to expect from the band, and listen to the messages that we try to deliver. We have a clear image of where we want this band to go, the path we want to take, the stages we aim to play and the people we want to communicate with, and build a family with those who can relate to our visions and inspire us with more.

When all this became a common interest and a mutual vision, all 5 members whom assembly turned out to be a very distinct combination due to all their experiences, decided that this is something they look to be doing for a very long time with insistence and perseverance in order to build on our passion – music.

Members came and went, but the original trio still remains, with the addition of Albert Obeid on lead guitar and Jack Khamo as the drummer. The band mixes many tastes of music through original songs and awesome covers of famous bands (Metallica, SOAD, A7x, Ghost, Disturbed, RHCP, Breaking Benjamin, etc…).
