Middle Eastern Magic: Narjahanam – Hushood AlNar
Posted by ChristopherMammal
Various Oriental metal bands play just about every kind of metal. The bands come from North Africa, the Middle East, India, South-East Asia, China and Japan. Some top-class Western bands do super Oriental metal too. What usually characterises any Oriental metal is the fusion of Western metal with ethnic musical structures, melodies, themes and/or instruments.
I’m sure I’m half Arab as well as half Jewish, half Zulu, half German, half Hindu, half Irish, half Viking, half Ginger Tabby Cat and half of other nationalities that can’t do arithmetic with fractions. Arab music in any form makes me tingle. When it’s Arab metal, I tingle with considerable vigour.
For your listening pleasure and delight, I’d like to feature many Oriental metal bands from different countries. First up is Narjahanam, from Bahrain. The flavour of their death metal is delicious.
