The Metal Crypt – Underground Metal Special: Iran

Farzad is among the featured Iranian Heavy Metal artists at the special issue of The Metal Crypt.

Heavy Metal isn’t the first thing that comes to mind when talking about music in Iran, if it comes up at all. However, The Metal Crypt is known for supporting (real) metal bands from all corners of the world and allowing people to share their views about metal music no matter which part of the world they come from.
Iran does have an underground metal scene, which is literally underground because the authorities there, who control most of Iran’s society, apparently see metal music as amoral and dangerous for the youth of their country. In light of that, what does not kill you makes you stronger, which applies to many of the artists and bands from the Iranian metal scene.
The following article is a sneak peek into the Iranian underground metal scene and is also dedicated to all Iranian metal musicians who play and listen to metal music because it is their great passion and despite it being forbidden in the Islamic Republic of Iran..

Please find the complete article at The Metal Crypt website.

Agora Gallery’s August 27th Opening Reception

“A viewer of Farzad Golpayegani‘s untitled paintings will get a distinct sense of dreamy surrealism. “You don’t have logical boundaries within a dream,” says the artist. Even the strangest things can feel normal in this context, and that is the sense that Golpayegani imbues in his works..”
