"In January 2015, Fadi Shami of the Doom Death Metal band ARAMAIC from the UAE, contacted Tempest and conceptualized the bands vision, He thought their music would cast him to express himself freely behind a drum kit, no restrictions, no titles, this was a project that he would definitely want to be involved with; it all made sense, as they were looking for a drummer to fill the ranks. Their path on this journey will be of Epic proportions. "
"Recently I’ve been asked to listen to Shrap’s newest EP, “We Shall Arise”. For those of you who never heard about them, they’re a Neo-Thrash Metal band from Kolkata, India. Active since 2011 under the name ANTIMSANSKAR, the band has passed through several line-up changes from whom only the founder (Saptak-vocals) remained. They have experienced through local and abroad contests (winners in some), shows and guest appearances."
