Nawather are a metal band from Tunisia who were around since at least 2003 in some form, but took their current name only in 2013 and released their debut album just a couple of weeks ago. Their drummer is a former member of Myrath, probably the best band on the Tunisian metal scene right now (it isn't like there are too many bands, though...)

Generally speaking, Nawather are playing the same kind of symphonic gothic/doom metal with dual male/female vocals which is quite popular around the world nowadays (not saying like there's anything wrong with that). However, it contains a lot of oriental folk elements which may be hard to digest for an average fan of symphonic metal, but pleasant to those who are into bands like Orphaned Land. A very good work overall, exactly what I was expecting.
