Another black metal album recorded in Bahrain (although the band themselves are from Saudi Arabia, they couldn't find a professional studio that records such kind of music in their home country). Al-Namrood are one of the best Middle Eastern BM bands (definitely better than Melechesh ;)), and most importantly, they're a real oriental metal band actively using Arabian motives in their music, not just a clone of some Western band. The quality of production may be not perfect, but the music is quite original. As for the lyrics - well, I know what "taghut" is, but I couldn't understand anything else... At least it looks like their lyrics are heavily influenced by Mesopotamian mythology (just like in case with Melechesh).

I heard they already have released their new album, "Kitab Al-Awthan", but I haven't listened to it yet. As for this one, you can find it here.

    The name of the album is BRECHTiad and is dedicated to the german philosopher!
    it's an album-collection of pornostroika dadaifi.
    All songs are covers of Bertolt Brecht poems.
