The band originally from Tehran, Iran consists of composer/lead singer Behzad Khakbaz, bassist Amirali Khosravani and drummer Ali Rad. The new CD was recorded last January 2013 with producer Paul Lewis at Paramount Recording Studios in Hollywood, CA. The band’s name is in reference to the struggles they faced in Iran due to the ban on Western Music.
“I don’t think people here in the states fully understand the difficulties that I had to go through just to write the songs. It was a challenge to try to prepare for the recording without being able to practice or doing so in one of the underground rehearsal studios, that are literally underground” says Lead Singer Behzad Khakbaz. The CD is a mix of early Metallica meets Nirvana. “The songs are lyrically tragic with Metal guitar grooves and a rhythm section that rivals any out there in the Metal world today.” states producer Lewis.
