ANGBAND - RISING FROM APADANA
PURE STEEL RECORDS
METAL TO INFINITY
wrong with our world? The war in Iraq is not over yet but Mister Bush is already
thinking about attacking Iran. War on the 'oil dollars' if you would ask me and
I doubt it has something to do with terrorism. Will the new president deny Iran
and will he try to give world peace a chance? Let's hope so and to be honest Im
hopeful… On the other hand it must be very difficult living in these countries.
Maybe the Islamism is the problem although specialists assure us that it is a
peaceful religion. In that case the only reason why there's so much suffering in
these countries must be the people behind this religion, making abuse of it for
their own wealth and power. Mostly they're using violence to reach their goal,
if not they mislead the crowd.
we talk about Heavy Metal and it seems that this kind of music, culture in
general, is forbidden in Iran I question myself again in what kind of world we're
living in. I can't imagine how life must be there and I feel fortuned to be born
in a free world. Maybe you're convinced now that Metal To Infinity turned into a
political website but we didn't change our goal and keep on supporting METAL!
The reason for my preview is the fact that I'm listening to a band from Iran,
read that Heavy Metal is pretty popular in Iran, strange… Nevertheless this
kind of music is not allowed in Iran and this fact makes me respect this band
even more. I really wonder how Angband managed it to deliver their music to us.
I suppose we have to send them some questions…
wise Angband blew me away. I didn't know what to expect from these guys but
their style is pure US Power Metal. I suppose most people over there hate the
Americans but Metal seems to be a universal language! In vein of old Iced Earth
and Metal Church Angband brings us a very good album. Also the production is
pretty good and I am really enjoying this one.
riffs are heavy on mid tempo songs with good structures. I know Turkey had some
good bands, let Mezarkabul be the perfect example, but now it seems also Iran
contains first class Metal. Metal knows no boundaries and let us be glad because
of it. Neither political neither religious leaders can't stop the youth
listening to Heavy Metal! Angband proves it!
a matter of fact Iran and the USA have comparable issues if we talk about
forbidding Heavy Metal or did you older guys have forget about the PMRC, leaded
by Al Gore's wife?
