Iranian Fusion Metal Improvisation

Some improvisation jam sessions, in the Iranian Fusion Metal genre, gave the band motivation and curiosity for keeping the record of this improvisation experiences as a live recording. In the last days of May 2007, The band members including: Farzad Golpayegani (Electric Guitar), Soheil Danesh Eshraghi (Vocals), Edward Wastnidge (Drums), Arash Jafari (Kooze/Darbuka/Daf) and Ali Sanaei (Bass Guitar) did the first trial of live recording. One of the goals of this project was to finalize the results as an album to release but the lack of suitable conditions and facilities for recording affected the quality of the sound so this project will be done in the future.
