Stated the band:
“It is an honor for us to represent our country in one of the biggest metal festivals in the world, Wacken Open Air. We are happy that the hardwork is paying off and we are thankful for everything we are being able to do. Going through a hell of a journey climbing the ladder step by step and we are proud of what we have accomplished so far. To all those who believe in Phenomy, thank you so much for being a part of our family!”
Govad MUSIC (the responsible promoter for the W:O:A Metal Battle in Middle East) wrote about PHENOMY:
“Approaching the metal scene with a solid ground, a clear vision, and a steady aim; Influenced by Thrash metal and their love for melodies, they set out to define a sound of their own, away from the common labels and flavors of the genre.” Read more here.

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. The band released their second album “Threaten World Order” on March 2018.
