04/05/16 Myrath Review

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.
