The story of Iraqi heavy metal band, Acrassicauda, has been making the rounds for a while now. A couple of weeks ago, a documentary on their story (Heavy Metal In Baghdad) made its European debut at the Berlin Film Festival. The article is a really good read. Check it out.

Well I was proud to have gotten a chance to interview the drummer Marwan on the phone. Most intelligent and outspoken musician I've ever come across. Here it is if anyone's interested.

These guys should change their name to COWPOUNDER. How did I come to this conclusion, you ask?

Well the last part of their name you pronounce "cow-da."

To which I thought,

"that sounds like Chowda."
"Nah, too New Englandish. hmmm, how about, Cow Powder?"
"No... Cow POUNDER."

I love myself.:D

Their new music video is pretty fantastic. Not the video itself, but the song. They've cleaned up their sound a lot. Looking forward to their set on Saturday. :fist:
