There is a great and promising year ahead for one of the most prominent Heavy Metal acts in Lebanon, ZIX.

Zix is the second Metal act to sign with Universal MENA following in the footsteps of Ostura (Read about it here). Continue reading
This year’s edition of Beirut Metal Fest will take place on September 7th and 8th! As promised before, this will be a two days festival, with 2 of biggest Metal bands in the world headlining, plus some of the finest Lebanese and Regional bands.
It’s been a while since we have seen these bands perform lately. Dedicated to Rise with the Scene, Metal Bell Magazine teamed up with the young organizers Rock Insight Organization who have shown an incredible dedication to the scene in the past 2 years.
Metal Slam is one of many collaborative events to come, and this time with its winter edition, it features 4 of the top-notch Metal bands in Lebanon and introduces a new band for the first time. The styles vary from Thrash and Classical Heavy Metal to the long forgotten style in the local scene: BLACK METAL.
The event will be headlined by Deathlam and ZiX, supported by Eden and Risky Violet, and will introduce for the first time newcomers Nuwera.
Metal Slam is an event that is being organized in a joint venture between Metal Bell Magazine and Rock Insight Organization.

Back in 2012, Lebanese Heavy Metal band ZiX released their debut EP, “The Warwhore“, with the band consisting only of three members: Ziad Bardawil (Bass guitars), Juan Carrizo (Guitars), and Maya Khairallah (Vocals). The Warwhore was completely composed, produced, and distributed by the trio, with the exception of a Feature for Maroun Srour, who wrote the lyrics for the title track of the debut EP. Ever since “The Warwhore” was released, the band kept on posting news about their debut album, “Tides Of The Final War”. (You can read more about it here, here, here & here). Finally, and after more than 4 years, ZiX‘s album release date, along with the track list, was revealed. Continue reading
The new guys in the scene “Rock In Sight” organized their second multi-band concert, “That One Night 2”. The organizers have previously given us “That One Night 1” and helped in organizing “Break The Cycle”, so I was guessing that by their third event, they should have an idea of how things go.
Ziad Bardawil, the bassist of the Lebanese heavy metal band ZiX, announced a new female singer who is set to take part in the Slovenian Metal Festival MetalDays on the 25th of July 2016. Continue reading
