Reemerging heavy metal scene in Egypt
More than nine years after being on every yellow press cover, portrayed along the lines of the myth of real rock stars, sex, drugs and rock´n roll(for those of you who have forgotten read James Napoli´s account from 1997.)The Egyptian heavy metal scene is making a comeback
Their concerts having been banned ever since(and apparently that´s still the case). It seems like heavy metal fans has come out of their imposed den, alive and kicking. Let´s hope society and authorities alike can see them in a new, and more relaxed light this time around.
I have yet to hear about an Egyptian heavy metal band singing in arabic, that would be interesting, does anybody know something about it?
I would love to see Iron Maiden or Ozzy Osbourne on the footsteps of the pyramids, in much the same way as the millenium concert with J M Jarre or The Aida Opera, they would surely put up a fantastic sound and light show, that would make Abolhoul rock as newer before.
