In related news, BILOCATE was recently featured in an article in TIMEOUT DUBAI magazine in it’s latest issue. Editor James Wilkinson conducted an interview with vocalist Ramzi EsSayed discussing the growth of BILOCATE and highlighting some of the problems that BILOCATE and several other classmates are facing as metal musicians in their home country, also highlighting some musical elements about Bilocate’s genre. You can find the complete article online on Timeout Dubai's site.

Here are some highlights from the interview:

"We are not allowed to play live in our own country, can you imagine that?"

"It’s ironic that the band should have such problems being heard in their home country, since they have gone to some effort to work their Jordanian culture into their tunes."

"We don’t let it overpower the music,’ he explains, ‘but we use Arabic instruments, so you can hear things like the oud and the tabla. It makes for an epic sound, so we are unique in that way.’ Such an approach can, he acknowledges, be cynically read as, “‘Oh – let’s use Arabic instruments,” but we are proud of where we came from."
