This week we had a closer look at Tunisian band Myrath. Here's the summary.
- Myrath is a progressive/oriental metal band.
- The band name stands for "Legacy" (ميراث) in Arabic and is meant to be pronounced as "mee-rath".
- Officially formed as Myrath in 2006, they performed under the name of X-Tazy from 2001 thru 2006.
- Since they come from Tunisia, surrounded by the Sahara desert, you can notice a lot of sounds that remind of a desert throughout their discography.
- Initially kicking off as a Death Metal cover band, they soon became a purely Symphony X cover band for two years. Many have critically called them a "Symphony X clone", however lyrics and the style show that they do have a unique sound.
- They were the first Tunisian band to be signed by a known label, French Brennus-Music. To date, they have released 4 full-length studio albums.
- Hope (2007), notable songs: "My Inner War", "Fade Away"
- Desert Call (2010), notable song: "Shockwave"
- Tales of the Sands (2011), notable song: "Beyond the Stars"
- Legacy (2016), notable songs: "Storm of Lies", "Believer" (TOP10 #6), "Endure the Silence", "Duat"
- This year the band is set to tour around with Symphony X in Europe, but also have their own tours across North America, Asia and Middle East.
- Next time they can be seen live on June 23rd in Paris and July 3rd in Kavarna.
