Acrassicauda
Faisal Talal is the singer and lead guitar player of Acrassicauda, a band that originated in Iraq.  It gained international attention after it was featured in the acclaimed 2007 documentary Heavy Metal In Baghdad

Acrassicauda's story is one of bruised freedom of expression and oppression under Saddam Hussein's regime.  Faisal and his band mates ultimately had no choice but to leave their homeland after their rehearsal space was bombed and they received death threats.  All in the name of heavy metal, Faisal tells us about his journey and the passion for music he followed to America.  Acrassicauda will be releasing their first EP: Only The Dead See The End Of War on March 9th, 2010 at Matchless, Brooklyn, NY.
