UAE-based metal collective Private Government return with the release of their second album Come and Take (created and titled as Μολὼν Λαβέ in Greek). Inspired by a distant dystopian future, Come and Take is a journey focusing on the human spirit’s resilience and endeavour to always rise again in the face of tyranny.
‘What I’m trying to accomplish with this album is to create a timeless record’, says Miltiadis Kyvernitis, founder of Private Government. ‘I am very proud of what we have produced on this album, and I am certain that we will put Middle Eastern Metal on the global map.’
Miltiadis Kyvernitis is joined on the album by lead guitarist and co-producer Joseph Akkawi. Come and Take features a line-up of guest musicians from a wide variety of musical backgrounds including award winning hip-hop producer Swerte, internationally acclaimed bassist Rami Lakkis, industry vocalist Nadeem Bibby of regional progressive-metal band Anuryzm, guitarist Royden Mascarenhas of Point of View, Serge Lutfi of Aramaic and Soul singer Hamdan Al-Abri.
