History[eedit | eedit soorce]

Bilocate wis foondit bi the brithers Ramzi an Waseem Esayed an their friend Hani Al Abadi, an got stairtit when they wur joined bi guitarist Baha' Farah, an later bi guitarist Rami Haikal.

Their first full-length album, Dysphoria, wis released in the winter o 2005, an received significant airplay on the local governmental radio station Jordan FM, wi a 5-hour show being dedicatit tae the baund an the album on October 27. They released a muisic video for "2nd War in Heaven." A seicont video, for "Days of Joy," wis produced bi Jacknife Video Productions. Bilocate addit a new drummer, Ahmad Kloob, in late 2006, an stairtit preparin for a new album.

In Julie 2008, Sudden Death Syndrome wis released,[2] mixed an mastered bi Jens Bogren (Opeth, Bloodbath, Katatonia, Paradise Lost, an ithers). The album received positive reviews from magazines an wabsteids such as Decible[3] an Blabbermouth.net.[4] The album wis self-released an is nou distributit in the Unitit States via The Omega Order, the distribution airm o The End Records.[5] In December 2008, Terrorizer reviewed Sudden Death Syndrome, cawin it "a tasteful an sophisticatit piece o wirk that determinedly puts the Jordanian metal scene on the map."[6] The album haes led tae extensive coverage for the baund in the Wast in the hivy metal media online as well as in print, such as interviews wi Terrorizer an Metal Hammer; the latter praised their "rich, doomy soond" an cawed Sudden Death Syndrome a "stunnin, hertfelt metal album."[7] Metal Storm nominatit the album for its Best Doom Metal Album Award; Bilocate's album finished in saxt place (o ten).[8]

Hivy metal muisic is still controversial in Jordan, as suggestit in a brief interview wi Terrorizer, December 2008, in which Rami Haikal said, "We hae even been tauld tae dissolve the baund an tae stop publishin oor muisic bi ony means."[9] In an interview wi Metal Hammer, Haseem Essayed said, "We are facin a lot o pressure an a huge rejection frae security, releegious authorities, an the community."[7] The UAE newspaper The National reportit in October 2008, in a series o airticles cawed "Young in the Muslim World," that a Bilocate concert in Jordan wis canceled bi authorities, "citin unspecified 'security reasons.'"[10]
