    Any of you know these guys or ever checked them out?

    Im really enjoying their Mabool album, middle eastern music meets Metal. Much like a middle eastern opeth.

    I only have their Mabool album but I like it. I should listen to it again, it's been awhile. For some reason I'm never in the mood to give it a spin.

    Mabool is an excellent album. A new one is supposedly due out in the near future. Can't wait!:hotjump:

    Mabool is awesome, and so are their previous albums, but these two suffer from severe sound issues.
    ORwarriOR should be recorded through 2009. I've seen them perform a new song live. They called it Vayehi Or (freely translated to let there be light). It was... okay.

    Still like it. I think track 11 (I think it's called The Storm) has one of the best melodies I've ever heard.

    I only have Mabool and from all reports it's the only one really worth having, but I think it is great. And it isn't just because of the few middle-eastern bits that are in there, the whole thing is great.

    Yeah, I love that solo. Very understated but just gets the mood completely right.
