Country Of Origin: Lebanon
The Warwore Ep,published in 2012,is the first release by Zix,a band formed in Beirut in 1998. These guys play a really good traditional heavy metal inspired principally by manowar, iron maiden and Crystal Viper but also with some middle-eastern influences, that make the sound really personal.
The band is formed by bassist Ziad Bardawil, by argentinian guitarist Juan Carrizo, and by singer Maya Khairallah, that has a really powerful and melodic voice, in my opinion the main-strenght of the band.
Every song in this demo is really good and it's really difficult say which is betterl, and everyone will certainly remain for a while in your mind.
But I think the little blemish, because songs are a little bit to similar.
Obviously if you're looking for some innovative stuff you will not find interesting this ep, but if you wanna spend some funny time listening good traditional metal songs, song like Night Of Evil, RIsing, the title-track and Metal Strike,a really catchy song that remaind of Manowar, will satisfy you.
