Bilocate Bio:

Rising from the mid-country city Fuhais, BILOCATE the Dark Oriental metal band has founded a realm of success, the story of which begins somewhere in the second half of 2003 when the 2 brothers Ramzi and Waseem EsSayed along with their lifetime friend Hani Al-Abadi met Baha' Farah after so many trials to find a guitarist that can pursue the same commitment as they did.

Together, the four friends built the first brick of BILOCATE, practicing and composing. However, after a year from that brick, another guitarist joined the crew, Rami Haikal, who could blend in so perfectly as he joined in at a composing time, and then it took them another year till they released their first album Dysphoria in 2005 having Ramzi performing vocals and writing lyrics, Hani playing the bass guitars, Baha' and Rami for guitars and Waseem handling keyboards and drums, also participating in writing few lyrics, like the labeled as "Longest song ever created by an Arab metal band" (a Desire to Leave) and been called as "The Opera of Doom Metal".

The release of Dysphoria was celebrated on the local governmental radio station Jordan FM in a show that lasted for around 4 hours hosted by Dj Mike and BILOCATE members.

As Dysphoria was released in almost the end of 2005, BILOCATE members started to promote their music, through the internet and any other channel they could get a hold of as they released their first music video for their now called hit track 2nd War in Heaven on which they worked with Rakan Al- Khaldi (Immortal Video Productions) following it by a decent number of local concerts and headlining the Egypt metal festival with the support from their good friend Ibrahim Al- Qaisi on drums who actually performed his last days with the band by joining them in the making of their second music video for the track Days of Joy which the band worked on with George Durzi (Jacknife Productions).

At that time it was late 2006 when the guys met Ahmad Kloub, who could fit perfectly with the band as a drummer after he got introduced to the BILOCATE spirit and the 6 members started their new journey for a new album.

Sudden Death Syndrome, the title of BILOCATE's 2nd record, as the list includes 7 songs demonstrating the total flexibility and richness of musical ideas in addition to the magnificent and magical work provided by key people in the industry, names such as Jens Bogren the Swedish producer/sound engineer as he handled a cooperative production work with BILOCATE, also performing the excellence of sound engineering and mastering techniques, resulting in an absolutely outstanding finishing for the album.

Also not forgetting the support the band has received during the recording process from the English sound engineer Nash Planojevic as for providing his facilities in Dubai and not to mention his experience, enabling Ramzi to give the desirable quality in recording vocals, and the Jordanian sound technician Mohannad Bursheh as for providing his facilities and experience, forming a comfortable atmosphere for Hani to record bass guitars.

Other names on the list to salute for their work, Christophe Szpajdel, the English artist, titled as "The Lord of Logos" as he offered the band a new logo that couldn’t be more perfectly magnifying to the image of the band at their new era, adding to that, Dennis Sibeijn from Netherlands, finalizing all what is said above with his stunning artwork that emphasizes the band's mentality and specifically speaking the subject album's concepts and meanings making the record ready for distribution.

Coming to the step which will compensate the members of BILOCATE for their none-vanishing commitment and hard work, Daxar Multimedia, the record label that the band has recently signed a contract with for distributing their album in the Middle East and GCC region, covering an area of 6 countries in which basically the band's new record has been made available by the end of May 2008.

As “Sudden Death Syndrome” got released it received so much attention by local, regional, and foreign magazines and websites like Terrorizer, Close Up Magazine, Decibel, MetalReviews E-Zine, OC Magazine, Jorzine E-Zine, JO Magazine, even the Dutch TV channel NOS, namely BILOCATE entered the international scene as a result of their new record.

Always prepare yourself for BILOCATE’s creations, as the stream shall never dry away.
