Hey no worries CristiSmile 
Didn't know about a new album though, but I think a lot of my metal friends on here will be glad to know that.

One of my absolute faves Raff.
I just bought this one when I was in Rome:
(and yes I totally forgot to mail you beforehand, but due to school and some other things I got distracted and completely forgot about you. It was a most wonderful trip though... although next time I would prefer to walk the streets of the city without my babysister under my arm. So many beautiful women in Rome, and there I was looking like I was strolling along with my girlfriend, ouchDead oh well the next time...)

After Phideaux's Infernal I've learned to take these kinds of announcements with a pinch of saltLOL
(It does look like they're on the verge of releasing a new album though)

Well I sincerely hope the weather is better than when I visited. Talk about umbrella slalom! The day after we left there was of course 19 degrees and sunnyLOL
I'm definitely coming back for more though, rain or not.

Ozric Tentacles and Melechesh are two bands that I can think of that have strong middle-eastern influences.

It's not prog 'rock' per se but Dead Can Dance is my go to for middle eastern and other eastern influenced music.

RUBI ATE THE FIG is an original fusion of Rock and Middle-Eastern music, featuring master musicians from both genres.

Co-Produced by band member Marc Mann (George Harrison, ELO, Oingo Boingo), and songwriter, Sharon Eliashar, RUBI ATE THE FIG features Electric Rock instruments with the Oud, Darbuka (Hand drum), Duduk and Kaval (Winds) and Tambourine, using traditional Middle-Eastern grooves, with odd-time signatures.

Thanks for checking us out!

My eyes hurt reading that, to be honest. Anyway, the music matters more than the font size and colour.
