Iranian metal duo OUT OF NOWHERE have recently launched a new video for their single ‘Earworm’, featuring Iranian composer and producer Ehsan Imani as guest guitarist. The song was recorded in their home studio and mixed and mastered by Ehsan.
Vocalist Amin Yahyazadeh stated: “We are glad to release this single after 2 years of silence since our first album. As our fans will recognise, our style is a little bit different. We used some djent elements and we are going to even go further, using some elements from jazz and modern music in our future work.”
“When I first heard their debut album, I was immediately amazed by the band’s creativity and talent. Amin is a great singer, he takes his career in music totally seriously, and is very confident and professional in recording sessions. Every recording engineer would love to work with him. Also his songwriting skills are continuously improving, and he always has some fresh and catchy songs up his sleeve, creating exciting times when we meet.” commented Ehsan Imani.

We did not have too much experience earlier with musicians from that part of the world, as there was not much information on the internet about the metal scene in Iran. Now we know Ehsan and another Iranian guitarist.As you may know they were the 2 finalists of our Guitar solo contest hosted, together with Seymour Duncan.”

Stargazer Consultancy is excited to announce a management contract with Iranian multi-talented artist Ehsan Imani and his great project RAGER BLAZE. Ehsan is a musician, producer, composer, photographer and multi-instrument player, who graduated with a “Professional Singer-Songwriter” qualification from the Berklee Online University.
Mohsen Fayyazi, CEO of Stargazer Consultancy has commented:
“Ehsan Imani is the absolute pride of all Iranian rock and metal lovers. He knows music, recording, mixing, mastering and all their tricks very well. It’s my honour to serve him as a manager and I saw all lightness in the future of this talented man!”
Ehsan Imani has stated the following:
“I’m really glad about this contract. Today in this industry, its really hard to find someone who really knows what’s he doing, so bands feel lots of pressure doing all the marketing-related jobs on their own. But Stargazer took that pressure away from me, and there’s no one here who can do this job better than him.”
RAGER BLAZE debut self-titled full studio album was released on digital format worldwide and CD only in Iran, on 1st January 2014.
