Derev

Hey, it’s Shay. This is That Album podcast.

“Derev is a progressive Rock/Metal band from Toronto, Canada, formed by the Italian/Armenian guitarist Armando Bablanian and the Syrian/Armenian drummer Michel Karakach. Derev’s sound combines the energy and intensity of metal music with the atmospheric sound of old-school progressive rock, while incorporating elements of their Arabic and Armenian heritage.”

I chat with Michel and Armando. We spin tracks from their 6-track debut EP Leap of Faith and get to know this incredible band.

Thank you for tuning in. Enjoy the show!

Cheers!

Shay
