Syrian Metal Band NETHERION To Be Subject Of DocumentaryFriday, 16th August 2013
Syrian metal band NETHERION is to be the subject of a documentary created by After Hours Films, a production company based out of New York City. After Hours have come across NETHERION, a band who has been able to persevere in the face of extreme diversity, successfully recording and releasing one album despite never playing together. Against all odds, NETHERION have been able to achieve a measured amount of success through social media. They currently have over 3,000 likes on Facebook and 160 followers on Twitter.
Oppression happens every day all over the world and NETHERION represent the latest example of the extreme prejudice. Their early success is a testament to their fortitude, and now we are in the process of helping them take the next step. They have begun the process of getting the band out of Syria so that they can freely pursue their passion without fear of prejudice. They want to help them achieve their dream of touring and to spread their message to the world-wide audience. With escalated tensions as a result of the civil war in Syria, time is of the essence. As After Hours Films, their role in this process is to record and document NETHERION’s incredible journey from imminent danger to the stage.
