Baghdad Heavy Metal are as unlikley a band as the war in Iraq is making sense. Two totaly diffrent musical cultures thrown together grinding their identities against each other to seemingly dominate and subjugate. But in their mutual attack they come together into a cohesive whole that is bolth powerful and completely unique.
It's a marrage made in hell - but by Allah it works. The guiding hand behind the production is Steven Last, with Steve Hunter and respected Arab artists even American icon rocker
Sammy Hagar creating a blend that is stunning as it is surprising.
