When I first arrived in Baghdad (back in 2003) at the ABC bureau, a young Iraqi fixer asked me if I liked music. (yes.) Then he asked me if I liked metal. (sure.) Then he started talking abut pretty much every sub-genre of metal ... thrash, hardcore, norwegian (black vs death metal) ... known to man.
Adel knows metal. Baghdad loves metal. Metal is Life.
Thanks to the power of Facebook we connected again (he's married .. Congrats!)
And its still not too loud. Or too old. Turn your laptop to 11....
