BeatRaid / Press

“Who are they? Female vocalist Dary, disillusioned and disappointed with the oriental music scene, was on the edge of quitting before linking with music teacher Michel Nehme and lyricist Sammy Elie soon after. The trio released their first single 'If I Die' back in 2010 and haven't looked back since...”

“What do they sound like? 'Our sound reflects our feelings, mood and thoughts,' Says Michel, which if we take a look at their singles we might conclude as confusion ('How did I get here in the first place?'), melancholia ('I keep on asking myself what went wrong') and general moodiness, unless you caught their light-hearted Christmas music video 'Scent of Christmas' which was a beaming ray of joy. Michel tells us, 'We don't try to guide a certain song to a specific genre; each song has its own atmosphere'. But if - just for fun - we wanted to genre-pigeonhole them, BeatRaid would happily fit in the pensive rock band category.”

“Is their music as dark as their long locks and gothic appearance would have us believe? Appearances can be deceiving, and the oodles of smoke in their music video isn't enough to mask their golden glow under those moody expressions. BeatRaid's music is more for those who like their rock clean inoffensive: Satan-worshippers and hardcore head-bangers stay clear.”

“Why should we care? Dary's impressive set of vocal chords are reason enough for a second glance, surprisingly their huge fanbase - of nearly 70,000 Facebook 'likers', no less - is so far all on the merit of only a handful of singles. Add to that slick production and clever compositions, and we think this is one band worth keeping an eye on.”
