I wasn't lucky to see this band Live, but what i know that they rock, just listening to their music you will know that, their lyrics, their riffs, thier bass ... everything about them is cool "I Didn't Say Great" but they are still pretty good for a band in an Arabic world and i believe they have a huge chance to go world wide and rock some people heads off ... i would sort them as mind-blowing band.

yes, as you know I reviewed both their albums.. and I think they are quite good.
there is definitely room for improvement.. I mean "Planet Of Cockroaches" and "East Of The Mediterranean" are great tracks because they are faster and have more energy in them.. maybe the band don't want to focus on just the more energetic stuff though - but those two songs I think were the best

Well man East Of The Mediterranean was written with passion you can't deny that
Sometimes i really feel sorry for such a bands dude, they are talented and they can do even better than what they have done already but there is no support for them that's why i opened those 2 topics and i took the permission to have their pages on MS that's the least i can do dude
And no words will be able to thank for those 2 reviews that you have wrote about their albums
Really man thanks a lot it might be a normal thing for you but you don't know how much it means to us man
It really means a lot
Rock on dude and keep on the good work

yeh! its ok about the reviews.. it was really great to hear something from so far away from here or places I am used to hearing bands from.. Syria is definitely different
in my last 'blog' entry on this site I am saying about the reviews I did for The Hourglass and how this really does mean something to them.. I hope that with what I have done I have helped the band out.

Thank's, amigo! I wanna comment all songs.
Pillgrimage - is good to be intro. Small lyrics with good words. Just to introduce the album or concert program. Great!
Trapped - good music with Heavy Metal elements (I like HM), the lyrics are great. "...As sirens were singing..." - I like this part. Great lyrics, I have no words to comment it.
Holy Rage - the song's about real warriors. Just for men. "...The torches are burning in our hands..." - I feel, like I AM THERE.
Planet Of Cockroaches - sorry, but I can't say, that it's wonderfull, but the drummer showed his skills, and skills are good.
Of Revenge And Glory - great instrumental theme. Reeeeaaal great!
Ancient Hope - music and lyrics are pretty good to listen this song
The City Of Evil Ones - lyrics... The first, on what I pay attention. "Religious lies are stuck on their brains"... So true!
Final Departure Stamp - there's nothing I can say. Only, that vocalist CAN sing high. And it's good!
Deceptive Light - feels good... Heavy again. I would like to hear it on live show
Risen - advice to you, guys. This song can be played as Intro or Outro on your concerts
The Land Of The Free - my favorite. Music is good, lyrics are wonderful! Sometimes I wanna hear something positive. I would like to add this song to my Ballads play list

So... I'm sorry, but I haven't time to listen to the second album... I will comment this one later. Thank you, guys for playin' such a good music, I spent my time well. God bless your art!
P.S. Skills... Skills are pretty good! Good luck, amigos! I'm sure you will kick the asses!!!

Hi again, amigos! Now I've got the time to comment the second album...

Selective Memory - At once it is visible, that the vocalist became more skilled
Distortion Of Thought - it's not my style, but bass-guitar sounds well
Ancient Hope: part 2- Kin Traitor - vocal is great, guitars - great, lyrics... "Lies, religion, history..." - I like this part
East Of The Mediterranean - very dipressive song. But, as I understand, it is your style with which you consult well
Alone Again - Having read through the name of a song, I have been assured, that it will be a ballad, therefore I had been strongly surprised. I'm sure, that you also can surprise others too. Is it instrumental theme?

So, let me know, when you'll be in Estonia, or somewhere near. I wanna see you at some kind'a live show. You are the band, with which I could play on one stage with a pride.

I listened to the songs from To the Land of the Free. Well, I have nothing bad to say about it, I liked all the songs, very good work, glad to hear that you're making such great music there. The music is quite powerful and from what I've heard you don't seem to lack in skills, so keep up the great work, hope everything works out well with the band.

Btw. what is the status of metal in Syria, is it popular or not?

As Syrian i would like to take this chance and answer you
Well the metal is pretty popular there but the only problem that there is no support what so ever, no record labels, no magazines .. nothing would really support the metal scene there.
Syria has plenty of true metal heads the only big problem we face there as metal heads that the law somehow banned Death and Black metal from being Satanic "I know it is stupid but it's just the way it is" and according to that metal scene is so underground and hiddin.
