Lebanese metal band Phenomy was formed by Loïc El Haddad and Rudy Bejjani in 2014. The band’s sound is a mixture of Thrash/Groove metal with Melodies, breakdowns and tribal/ethnic rhythms. Only three month after its formation, Phenomy performed in several local gigs and in the Persian Metal and Rock Festival in Cannakale/Troya city in Turkey alongside big names like Orphaned Land.
Later on, Phenomy released their debut album “Once And For All” and received good feedbacks from magazines and webzines, before signing a distribution deal with Via Nocturna in 2017. In Summer 2017 Phenomy toured with Repay the eastern European countries (Hungary, Croatia, Serbia, Romania and Bulgaria). Furthermore the band supported Grave in Lebanon in October 2017. In July the band played at Metalhead Meeting 2018 in Romania and in august they took the stage at Wacken Open Air 2018. Phenomy released their second album “Threaten World Order” on March 2018.

Lovebites will unleash the sophomore full-length album called "Clockwork Immortality" on the 7th of December 2018.
The band consists of Asami (vocals), Miho (bass), Haruna (drums), Midori (guitars) and Miyako (guitars/keyboard). The Lovebites sound owes a debt to the many great overseas heavy metal bands that have directly influenced their writing. Coupled with their own unique take on music, taking a piece from each member’s eclectic background and experiences, everything has culminated into forging a truly formidable group.
Their first European tour, including stops in the Netherlands, Germany, France and the UK starts on the 13th of November this year!

14.11. D Essen - Zeche Carl

Lovebites started working on their first EP at the end of 2016, joined by the amazing engineering team of Mikko Karmila and Mika Jussila from Finland who are known for their work with Nightwish, Children of Bodom and Amorphis to name but a few. The Lovebites EP was the end product of those sessions, which was released in mid-2017. In October 2017 they released their first full album, "Awakening From Abyss". In the aftermath of the release of "Awakening From Abyss" in October 2017 through Europe and North America; Asami, Haruna, Midori, Miho and Miyako performed their first overseas live shows in London.
On the heels of this success, in June 2018 the all-female band won the Best New Band award at the Golden Gods Awards held by the UK music magazine Metal Hammer, being the very first Japanese band to pull this off.
Lovebites released their second mini album "Battle Against Damnation" that same month, taking it on the road with them to the world’s biggest metal festival Wacken Open Air in Germany, where they drove a crowd of over 10,000 people into frenzy before appearing on the main stage at the UK’s Bloodstock Open Air headlined by Judas Priest.
