For the unfamiliar; a little bit of background behind one of the most eager, talented, Middle Eastern Metal acts in the last decade! Anthony Kaoteon formed Kaoteon by himself in 1999. Then Walid Wolflust joined soon after. The duo are a blackened death metal band that were originally based within Beirut, Lebanon, located in the Middle East. Making music in the Middle East was nearly impossible for the band. Kaoteon faced jail sentences, were constantly persecuted by religion and their local government, and dealt with extreme censorship simply because of the music they performed on the daily. The band is now currently located in the Netherlands capital “Amsterdam”.
Finding music you want to hear or should hear is hard these days as there is so much of it out there at your fingertips. Facebook ads found me my latest review as this band was giving the album away free physically to Linkin Park fans. I had to admit a really good marketing strategy on their part. I took a listen asked for a digital copy and they got it to me fast.
Max Cavalera is a pure metal machine! He always working on a wide variety of projects. It’s almost as if Max is capable of making records during sleep. Every release that Max puts out becomes a personal fan favorite and each release forever stands against the test of time! Nailbomb’s “Point Blank” record is proof of that. “Point Blank” is a beautifully crafted chaotic mass of pure metallic industrial; a record that continues to gain new fans throughout the metal and industrial community every single day. Don’t miss out on Soulfly performing Nailbomb’s “Point Blank” all the way through because it’s the type of record that’s meant to be seen by thousands of heavy music fans worldwide!
