ALBUM REVIEW: THE ROOM band has been delivering spectacular shows all around the country for some 4 years now, and they’ve never failed to get their crowds immersed in the deep realms of heavy sounds and goosebumps of electronic rock grooves. Unbelievable electric guitar riffs that are at least described as “not of this planet”, with some magical oriental percussions and mind-blowing synthesizers. The result is an overwhelming experience that is way beyond description of us mortals. With every song, there is a story, there is an idea and a message, that is well delivered through the enormous screen/projector videos behind the stage. THE ROOM is what is truly a genuine world-class modern Egyptian band.
We had an exclusive peek into the brand new album that THE ROOM is working on, and got to talk with the gurus behind the project, Amr Hefny and Mohammed Ragab at Ganoub Studio. The new album named “Ignorance is bliss” is the first album for THE ROOM to be under an international independent music label. M. Ragab says that, “From the moment Chris Pati – the head of the label and the INDIMUSIC TV station – heard
our music, he decided to sponsor us and get the band in the American independent music scene”. “We have been working really hard for nearly 3 years on the upcoming album, we are currently finalizing it now” Amr added. “Our music will be available through almost all major online music stores like iTunes, sonicbids, and for the future plans we are planning for a tour in the US”. INDIMUSIC TV is also airing a report about THE ROOM and Ganoub Studio on its TV station soon as an episode of a show named “Around The Globe”. M.Ragab commented, “We are just taking our time to finalize and master the album” . The new album is more “darker and heavier” as M.Ragab and Amr describe it. “We used more analog synthesizers and equipment, which shows in the overall sound of the record and the live performance of course”.
Ignorance is bliss, the new upcoming album is of 7 separate tracks, with one major lyrical theme about how art is used as a tool in the hand of the shepherd.
The CD will be available for sale at Ganoub Studio.
