Band leader Abtin Zahed says: ‘These three songs are about the situation that we all are in. A new world that is full of lies and we all are burning in it. The first track ‘Ignited by Lies’ is about our new world that makes us slaves and we are prisoners who don’t feel it and we will be ignited by all the lies that are around us. The second track ‘Rising Inside’ is about our awakening. We suddenly see that there is nothing left from the world, and we just see nothing. Just ashes of dreams and emptiness and deep inside we want to rise. The last track ‘Out of the Shadows’ is about our redemption after awakening. Now we know the lies. Now we know what is behind this. Now we are fighters who come out of the darkness and reach for true light. We recorded these tracks in Iran, before our departure to Turkey. We hope that one day we can be together again. We are working on new songs, and they will be ready soon.’

Follow your dreams is the best piece of advice I was ever given says Abtin Zahed, founder and leader of Thy Dispraise for good reasons. The band started out in 2012 in Iran where free expression of art is impossible. Over years in this oppressive environment, they forged and shaped their musical style of groove metal and metalcore. Meanwhile, Singer Alireza Shafiei, master of brutal shouts and growls is the perfect counterpart to Sheyda Mohammadi and her mesmerizing clean voice. Guitarist Mohammadreza Rezaei eventually added his shredding skills and composing expertise as the missing part of the puzzle. In 2021, their debut album, Lost Era’ was released and achieved critical acclaim. Attentive listeners will notice a Persian theme in our songs says Sheyda. The lyrics mirror the struggles a human identity endures at different stages of life. Lately, some of them left their homeland Iran due to government issues and started a new life in Turkey.
