Mizraab biography
MIZRAAB is a progressive metal band formed in the 1990's by guitarist Faraz Anwar and they are arguably the first progressive metal band from Pakistan.

In 2000 MIZRAAB released their debut album "Panchi".The album and the band failed to make an impression in their native country and the line-up dissolved,with Anwar being the only member left to carry on with the MIZRAAB name.

Faraz recruited new band members Shahzad Naseem (rhythm guitar,backing vocals), Rahail Siddiqui (bass) and Irfan Ahmed (drums) and in 2004 the band released their second album "Mazi Haal Mustaqbil".With this release the band finally attracted some attention and now has a sizable fanbase in Pakistan and the United Arab Emirates.MIZRAAB is currently working on their third album.

Highly recommended to all progressive metal fans!

Review by toroddfuglesteg

2 stars If I remember correctly, this live album was released by Mizraab's fan club. Mizraab themselves has relocated from Pakistan to England.

I can understand the dedication from their fanclub and their desire to release the best possible product. The sound is good throughout and the album is offered as a free download. It also becomes pretty obvious why Mizraab so far has failed to make an impact in the world wide prog metal scene. Their music is pretty bland and generic. The final track Panchi is both good and has some local folk tones flavors. This is also the title track from their debut album. I guess that album is well worth checking out. The rest of the songs on this live album though is not in the same standard as Panchi. A couple of Blink 182 like songs does not brighten my day. Neither does the rest of the stuff which is generic rock and pretty bad too. This album is not my kind of tea, but check it out on the basis of the inclusion of Panchi.

2 stars
