1 stars Shehili sounds like the work of an average bunch of musicians when, undoubtedly, these guys are capable of exceptional tunes. With Desert Call, Myrath blew me away with a sublime mix of hard-hitting progressive metal with deeply woven arabic vocals/ intstrumentation that created a unique feeling of been drawn away into an exotic, far away land (and I'm Indian!). Everything about Desert Call was simply stunning, while Shehili sounds half-hearted and run-of-the-mill metal with a spattering of middle-eastern influences. While the background of synth laid down by Elyes Bouchoucha and the essentially metal riffs of Malek Ben Arbia go perfectly with Zaher Zorgatti's vocal histrionics, the most notable missing element are the thunderous/ complex/ intricate/ pounding drums and percussion of Saif Ouhibi to go with the growling bass lines of Anis Jouini. Shehili sounds like over-produced pop-metal - the majesty of Myrath seems to be long gone...please bring back the Myrath of Desert Call!
