M I D D L E - E A S T E R N

MELECHESH (formely ISRAEL, now HOLLAND - brilliant middle-eastern epic black-thrash metal)
note: they became rather shit after their heraldic release "Emissaries".

ABSU (USA - another brilliant black-thrash metal band that incorporates a ton of middle-eastern influences)
note1: also check out EQUIMANTHORN = great ritual dark ambient from (former) members of ABSU.
note2: no actual middle eastern band members.

NILE (USA - superb oriental inspired technical death metal)
note1: "In Their Darkened Shrines" & "Those Whome The Gods Detest" = their bast albums
note2: no actual middle eastern band members.

NECROS CHRISTOS (GERMANY - vicious death metal with sublime accoustic middle-eastern intermezzo's)
note1: also check RA AL DEE EXPERIENCE = an all middle eastern folkloric accoustic project from members of NECROS CHRISTOS.
note2: no actual middle eastern bandmembers (for as far as I know)

AL NAMROOD (SAUDI ARABIA - suprisingly good melodic, middle-eastern black metal
note: also check MEPHISOPHILUS = rawer black metal project from an AL NAMROOD member.

SCARAB (EGYPT - decent standard death metal)

ORPHANED LAND (ISRAEL - some interesting melodies and/or riffs here or there, but nothing extremely appealing, imo.)
note: O.L. are middle eastern hippies

CRESCENT (EGYPT - brutal death metal with middle-eastern scale patern riffing)
note: I just came across this band, and seemed to be legit.

MORBAD (IRAN - nice rancid technical death-thrash metal)
note: I just came across this band, and seemed to be legit.


Quote above taken from my post in this topic: http://www.metalstorm.net/forum/topic.php?topic_id=28171

& Why divide and seclude only "Arabian" metal here, and even going against supposed Jewish/Hebrew and Persian metal? Isn't the metal scene over there small enough already, to divide it into too much subcatagories already? Israel based bands such as Melechesh (formely), Damaar, Sonne Adam, Bischop of Hexen, etc.. seem to be just as much of a local asset the scene for decent music.

(NOTE: I AM FULLY AWARE OF ALL THE DIFFERENCES & CONFLICTS BETWEEN MIDDLE EASTERN PEOPLE, AND EVEN AMONGST SEMITIC PEOPLE. I DO NOT INTEND TO GENERALIZE YOU ALL AS "THE SAME" WITH THIS QUESTION/STATEMENT. THIS IS A REGIONAL/TOPOGRAPHICAL, NON-POLITICAL, NON-RELIGIOUS, NON-SOCIAL REMARK)

I'm glad to know that someone is aware of these guys. They are my favorite local band along with Scarab. They are going to hit the studio by next month to record their full length album. They were also featured in Global Metal Talent

I agree with the concept, this topic is limited but it's older than "Oriental/Mid-Eastern Sound in Metal Music"

Inner Guilt

Awesome choice. Their blend of thrashy riffs, breakdowns, tremolos and harsh vocals is impeccable. They really sound strong.

Arabian Metal has lot of heavyweight of whining growls and very biased religion crap lyrics which evidently they think that's the most important subject to reply on. Last time i listen an Arab Metal was in 2007 and shit! i started hating it.

Now if you take country "Oman" in consideration, they are the most updated country who pouring down lot of DM bands against their religion. Anyone fan of "Oman" Metal scene out here?

That's the lyrical side of that music, you know that middle east has been always in conflicts with religious issues, so It's obvious that they choose religious theme for lyrics, isn't like questioning Scandinavian metal scene for their lyrical theme that mostly is about their cultur and nature ? I think every band get inspirations from the place they live in for their words in the music they write.
and no I know nothing about metal scene in Omen.

No, they ain't biased the way every Arabian Metal bands are. They just whine about "freedom", "peace", "our mediocre government" and blah. They doing it like from past so many years and its too boring to give a shit. About Scandinavian metal scene? Oh please! they are way different lyrically and have a freakload of talent, innovation and inspiration.

hmmm, though up to some extent I agree, but how do you know they don't have the inspiration and talent, ok I can accept the innovation part, but the way they present what they are trying to say in their music is mostly affected by where they live, I mean when they lack innovation mostly its because many of them are not really free to say whatever they want to say many talks in metaphors and they live in a completely different culture,some common ppl beside the governmental ppl are opposed to playing metal and very small ppl knows their music in society,among all those pressures being innovative is a bit hard, but I still believe that yeah sometimes they realy seem inexperienced in what they have done till now, but I can't say It's boring because they're using the same theme for their lyrical theme.Their presentations is a bit in trouble, well It's obvious when they can't have gigs as much as the band want to perform how they can grow ? Totally I say they still need to learn more but I have heard good tunes among them like I said Kimaera is one of them which had really stuck on my mind.

Really ?
I know the middle eastern scene pretty well, the big bands like Bilocate, Nervecell, Scarab do not sing about "freedom" and "peace" and the local Syrian scene, which is flourishing recently, has lots of bands who sing about non of what you mentioned. see Eulen, Despair (SYR), [band]Blackspell [/band]and Psychiatric Delusions.
I'm not even going to discuss the last sentence though since it's ridiculous to say the least.

Your post is biased, and TBH totally wrong. Just name me a single band that is pro-religion. And you can't really generalize what you heard on the whole scene. There are some very, very talented bands in the Middle East. Karl Sanders of Nile helped the UAE band Nervecell with some vocals on their latest album. Since when does Karl Sanders assist shit? And what makes you say that Scarab, Bilocate, Eulen and Innerself's Crescent Moon suck?
Sorry dude, but it looks like you know nothing of the Arabian scene.

Honestly at this moment I do suck big time cause I am failed to retaliate with the facts, but you know what? back in 07 i dig out Arab metal scene and it wasn't anything unique with the fact that constantly they just had a boring pro-religion lyrics and repetitive mediocre riffs.

Are all Arabian Metal bands sucks? No. they don't. Some of them came out from their small hope and try to established themselves as an unique brand but what back in 07 I heard was an awful taste that I had it. I'm trying to fetch out that band which was having a successful scene, high pitched vocal notes with depressive weak drumming and awful riffs had just torn me apart to never step it back and give it a listen to.
