Yesterday We Brought You a Band From Syria – Today We Have Dark Phantom From Iraq

Really appreciate it when bands from lesser-known communities around Asia get in touch with us! Much respect…

Dark Phantom is a thrash-death metal band raising light from the Kirkuk region of Iraq. The band was established by Murad and Rabeen in 2009 with the idea of creating melodies, songs about war and politics, and religious corruption.

They are mixing modern extreme metal sound with traditional middle-eastern scales and patterns to create a unique sound. The band resisted many obstacles due to Metal music being not welcomed and rejected in the country and the region. But even with that, they have played many shows both locally & internationally and finally enjoy the love and respect from their fans at these shows. Dark Phantom strives to play the music they love and bring forth their message of peace and brotherhood through their lyrics. is an underground Asian music news website created for the sole purpose of supporting our own world. We support all bands and genres HOWEVER we do not support nor have any sympathy for homophobic, racist, sexist rhetoric in lyrical content or band material. UNITE ASIA!
