Michael Eastwood Music Names Myrath #2 Album of 2016 I hadn’t really heard much of Tunisian-based Myrath before this album, but man have I been missing out on some awesome eastern Metal! This isn’t just a gimmick band though, they are exceptional songwriters and I find most of what they do to be very tasteful. This album has SO MANY GOOD TRACKS (there’s even a GOT themed track for all you fanboys)! I’ve had this one in my car for a great part of the year and often have people who wouldn’t listen to or even hate metal jamming away. Myrath are a super unique, eastern musical experience that have greatly impacted my music and just inspired me – do yourself a favour, get this album…and I mean buy it, so that they can make more of this awesome music!
Brendan Davy Picks Legacy as #1 Album of the Year If you’d had told me at the beginning of the year that a Middle-Eastern progressive metal album would be my clear number one, I actually would have believed you. Myrath provides a stunning, unique style you just can’t find anywhere else. Starting with the extremely catchy song “Believer”, Legacy will keep you hooked to the very end.

Bangover Picks Legacy as #2 of Best Metal Albums of the Year From the moment Myrath announced the crowdfunder for their Prince of Persia-inspired video, it was clear that their next album was going to be extraordinary. The expectations set by their previous work were high, but the Tunisian quintet made sure to exceed them all. Legacy boasts an enchanting amalgam of progressive metal beats and intricate and delicate middle eastern melodies that elevates Legacy above anything Myrath has done before.
