Brutal Throne II

Maysaloon – The Forgotten Dawn Out April 11

The Syrian Metal Scene is alive in many forms from under the rubble of the devastating civil war that has been tearing apart the country for many years now.

The Syrian people are known throughout history to be great warriors, and they are fighting against all odds to make their hard situation a better one through art and music. Among these warriors is a new generation of great Metal heads who are turning their pain into heavy aggressive riffs of darkness. One of these bands is a great new aspiring band, Maysaloon, who will be releasing their debut LP on April 11th, 2017.

So who are Maysaloon?

Maysaloon is a Syrian Technical/Melodic, Oriental Death Metal Band, founded by Jake Shuker in late 2015, after playing a live concert in Damascus.

Maysaloon members consist of Jake Shuker: Guitar/ Vocals, Yousef Yaziji: Guitar, Dio Al-Miqdad: Bass.

Eight months ago, the band started recording their first ever LP called “The Forgotten Dawn”. The recording took place at Jake’s home with minimal equipment due to the hard accessibility and lack of financial support caused by the civil war.
The EP’s official teaser was released on Monday 6/3/2017 (Watch video below) and contains 8 tracks:

  1. Lama Bada Yatathana (Intro)
  2. The First Believer – Al Namroud
  3. The Horrid Homage
  4. Seals of Astarte
  5. Seeds of Sanity
  6. Tanit Demands Her Due
  7. Hatred and Pain Will Always Remain
  8. The Forgotten Dawn (Instrumental)
  9. Pull The Plug (Death Cover)

Maysaloon

The band is successful regardless of the war going on in their county, for they are trying their best to continue the thing they love and making Syria proud.
Maysaloon’s music was influenced by a lot of bands such as Death, Obscura, Dark Tranquillity, and ancient Mesopotamian music.
Their lyrical themes are also about Ancient Civilizations, wars, and philosophy, which apply in today’s world. The lyrics of the album were written by Waddah Al Tawil, expect for “Seeds of Sanity” which was written by Jake and “Hatred and Pain Will Always Remain” by Dio Al Miqdad.

The awesome album art was designed by Syrian artist Trident Abd.
You can go ahead and enjoy the song in the video below.

EDITOR’S PICKS:

THE HOURGLASS Disbanded After 13 Years

Syrian Metallers THE HOURGLASS just posted on their Facebook Page (Find Full Statement Below) that the band will disband after a glorious run of 13 years. We receive this sad news in great disappointment as they are and will always be a pioneer band from Syria.
The band clarified that the disbanding is a result of the destructive ongoing war in their homeland.

The band also announced that they will be releasing a last single of the band very soon.
“A Glorious Suicide (Phoenician Queen of Carthage)” is a single that will feature once more the legendary Zak Stevens (SavatageCircle II Circle, Trans-Siberian Orchestra) and Marcela Bovio ( Stream of Passion , The Gentle Storm). So stay tuned to their page.

The Hourglass recently featured 2 legendary vocalists, Zak Stevens and John Oliva (both from Savatage), in their latest single “Play The Pawn”. (You can watch the video below).

Play The Pawn

You can find the full Statement from the band’s founder and main composer Rawad Abdel Massih below:

Soon I will be releasing the final song of The Hourglass. The Hourglass is officially disbanded.

A Glorious Suicide (Phoenician Queen of Carthage), again with Zak Stevens Circle II Circle ( Savatage ,CIrcleIICircle , Trans-Siberian Orchestra ) and Marcela Bovio ( Stream of Passion , The Gentle Storm) will be the last single the band will release.

Despite all the disappointments and effort, time and money I personally and the members put on the band, the 13 years of The Hourglass are still in my eyes a great journey. We reached where a lot of other Middle East bands still seek to reach. The Hourglass will be always the first Syrian heavy metal band to have achieved 3 albums, singles with international artists and opened for international bands. I hope that the metalheads of the Middle East will remember The Hourglass as one of the early bands to release albums and originals.

I want to thank all of the people and players who have contributed to The Hourglass along the years, Omar Harb, Munsef Turkmani, Bahij Ghata, Abdulatif Almalouhi, Rafi Faks, Sharbel Kanoun, Yamen Yamani, Sameh Haddad, Zaher Ajlani, Salim Zahra, Nareg Abajian, Yeghia Daghelian, Saad Fanari, Khaled Barakeh, Shant Hagopian (forgive me if I forgot anyone), and I want to thank my band mates Aram Kalousdian of Nu.Clear.Dawn and Bassem Deaibess of Blaakyum for putting all of their talents and efforts in the band.

I guess it is sad to think about all the projects and dreams I was preparing for The Hourglass, but hey…Zak Stevens and Jon Oliva sang my lyrics and my music!! It couldn’t be more rewarding!! The end of The Hourglass is just a very tiny part of the disastrous consequences of the war that is happening in our homeland Syria, which hopefully will be over in the coming few years.

The project of Gods and Warriors of the Fertile Crescent will never be over; I will revive it in other forms in my solo project. I will be releasing songs and albums in my own name from this time on, and they will be of many genres of music, Orchestrated, Electronic, Ambient, Oriental, Rock and Metal. I guess it is the time for a new beginning.

Regarding A Glorious Suicide, I recorded this song 8 months ago and it was supposed to be a single for the new album. It is about Elissa (aka Dido) the Canaanite Phoenician queen who ran away from Tyre and established Carthage, the city that will later invade Rome and establish an empire. It has a completely different style of the previous The Hourglass songs, with Zak and Marcella the song is really amazing. It will be released at the end of August. I want to thank Adel Saflou of Ambrotype for contributing to the song writing and Tarek Shehabe of Wasaya for doing the Synth solos.

I will keep this page to share the old and new songs of the band from time to time to keep the legacy of The Hourglass alive.

Farewell fellows,
Rawad Abdel Massih.

THE HOURGLASS Disbanded After 13 Years

Khebez Dawle Release Night

The Syrian civil war brought destruction and violence to the beautiful land of Syria, but led this truly brilliant band to arrive here in none other than our own Lebanese metal scene. They’ve been here in Lebanon for the past 2 years and have been working on their debut album. They released the self-titled album on August 12, and we were all amazed. Continue reading
