Biography

In the year 2000, Kimaera was born on the stages of small pubs in the streets of Lebanon after dark. It has come a long way since, having become an international name and destroying the stage in music festivals across the globe such as Masters of Rock (Czech Rep.), ‘Festivale Mediteranneen de la Guitare (Tunisia), and Unirock (Turkey). Hailed as the ‘Lebanese Ambassadors of DOOM’, Kimaera has helped put Lebanon on the map when it comes to metal music.

They were first discovered by Russian label company Stygian Crypt Prod., after Kimaera released its self produced single ‘God’s Wrath’ in 2004. The powerful single received very positive feedback, which in turn opened the way for the worldwide release of their debut album ‘Ebony Veiled’ in 2006. Due to the innovative interplay of Doom, Death & Oriental metal elements contained within one album, ‘Ebony Veiled’ was heralded by the press as “The doom metal discovery of the year”. Critics described it as “A true opus of beauty and sadness”.

But, it has not been an easy Journey. Before releasing their debut album, three band members had to leave the country simultaneously. With half the members gone, live performances became an impossibility, and many speculated about the future of the band. But, this did not deter the remaining
members. They proceeded with the recording & release of ‘Ebony Veiled’.
