Jon Schaffer of Iced Earth and Sons of Liberty will be featured as guest vocalist
on Syrian Thrashers Anarchadia’s upcoming album „Let us All Unite“.
Schaffer performs alongside the band’s singer Nour on a track entitled „True World
Order“ which will be available as a free download.
The album will be released on Metal East Records, Dubai/UAE.
Anarchadia had the following to say about the collaboration: „No words can
express how honored we are to work with a heavy metal icon such as Jon who
happens to be a very cool and down to earth guy and a true metal brother. Cheers
guys hope you will dig the new stuff!“
Jon Schaffer stated: „I have always been impressed with the efforts and music from
metal bands coming from the Middle East and when I got the invite to guest on
Anarchadia’s album, I was immediately into it. I am hoping these guys will go far in
their career, they certainly deserve it.“

“It has come to my attention that Century Media is suing fans over illegal downloads of (among others) our latest album ‘Dystopia’. I felt it was important to clarify that we had no knowledge of this motion and were, sadly, not asked permission.
We all know the music industry is changing. We have been adapting to this model by embracing legal streaming services such as Spotify and by bringing our music to places we have never played before by touring our proverbial asses off.
As much as we respect that the labels are having a harder time selling music, we feel this is a misguided effort and want to make sure our fans know we would have not given our consent would we have been asked.”
The time has come for the second webisode from this summer. Watching is believing. Enjoy!!
