Friday Morning Metal – Myrath – Into the Light

Ooooooh Tunisian power metal! I’m pretty sure only two people read these anymore, and one of you prefers power/melodic/grandiose metal over thrash so hopefully this is right up your alley.

Myrath is straight out of Tunisia, and got started in 2007. Wikipedia says they started in 2001 as X-Tazy, but that band name sounds like a boy band.

The video is a live performance, and I hope they play the west coast soon because the stage is beautiful, there are dudes with fire, and there’s a magic floating table! A triumphant magic floating table!

The singer gives off some solid Steve Perry vibes, and he fits in with the total vibe really well. He also does some fun mic flipping, can’t pass that up. The band is really tight, and the song is bombastic and magic. Were I a pro wrestler, I’d want to come out to this song. Enjoy!

Friday Morning Metal – Myrath – Believer

TUNISIAN METAL. My big tall friend sent me this video yesterday, for the band Myrath, based out of Tunis, Tunisia. According to the Wikipedia, they were a cover band called X-Tazy before making the transition into Prog Metal. This sounds a bit more power metally, or even like quasi-folky-something power metal. The use of orchestral elements really fills out the sound. And the vocals are really solid.

This video, though, it’s got a kind of polish that most metal bands only hope to get. Big & bombastic & reminiscent of like Prince of Persia or that Mummy movie featuring the Rock. Also I hope their touring drumkit also appears to have grown out of a tree. That’s just awesome.
