MYRATH Vocalist ZAHER ZORGATI Discusses Band Creation, Upcoming Live Shows; Video
May 27, 2019, a year ago
In this new video, vocalist Zaher Zorgati talks about how Myrath became a band, what being in a metal band in Tunisia means, what to expect from upcoming live shows, and much more.
Myrath's new album Shehili, was released on May 3 via earMusic. Shehili is innovative, yet loyal to the band's signature sound. It establishes contrasts between uplifting melodies and thoughtful, and, at times, heartbreaking lyrics. The best example of this duality can be found in Shehili's first single "Dance," the video of which was a sequel to "Believer." The "Dance" video tallied more than a million views in the first five weeks of release.
As Zaher Zorgati says, "The purpose of our music is to induce happiness and joy, to pay tribute to those who refuse to fall or to stop hoping, even in a world filled with hatred and uncertainty."
Shehili, although produced with extreme care, keeps a very natural and organic flavor. The recordings took place in Hamburg, Germany, Tunisia, and France to make sure every single note found its way into the mix. Shehili was mixed by three different producers, including Kevin Codfert, Eike Freese, and the world-famous Jens Bogren (who already worked on Legacy), in order to give each song the best possible treatment and make it shine.
