Nathrzeim are among the very few Jordan-based metal bands that are known outside their home country. I even have found a Russian translation of their interview, which is quite short, yet informative. They're playing standard European sympho-black metal without any folk elements. According to them, it's neary impossible to play concerts (at least not completely underground ones) or buy metal merchandise in Jordan, and they had no other options than to record this album at home and release it independently (they were searching for labels, but couldn't find any). Their name means "Dread Lords" in Arabic (by the way, I knew that there's a race in the Warcraft universe called "Nathrezim", which means "dread lords", but I thought it was in some fictional language).
