An interview with one of the finest Middle-Eastern Metal bands in the world - Al-Namrood. Straight outta Saudi Arabia, this band risk real-life beheading with every album they release. Now that's commitment! Written for Heathen Harvest, and barely edited at all by the overworked and rarely thanked Sage Weatherford.
"No matter who your favourite black metal band is, they are
playing it safe compared to Al Namrood. Recording anti-Islamic metal in
Saudi Arabia, these three metalheads (Mephisto, Humbaba, and Ostron)
risk very real punishment if they are ever discovered, and have to keep
their musical lives completely hidden under fear of death. No matter
how tough Glen Benton thought burning an inverted cross into his
forehead was, it pales into silly (if painful in the forehead region) nincompoopery compared to the life-or-death concerns of Al Namrood."
