Calibre is one of the most streamed/played artists of Iran, and they are fronted by none other than our vocalist Amin. Displaying great songwriting and quality, they balance a mix of melodic metalcore and deathcore.
Iranian metalcore band Out of Nowhere recently rocketed onto many metal listeners’ radar with the aggressive “Blind Crow,” the music video for which they have now proudly shared with the world.
