In 2009, two nerdy non-Metalheads friends of mine (Derek Haddad and Elio Massih) helped me launch LebMetal from a city in north Lebanon called Jbeil. I assembled a group of 15+ contributors from friends to serious Metalheads I knew from the Lebanese Metal scene and we started reviewing local Rock/Metal concerts as well as our favorite albums.
Since then, I have been managing LebMetal as a technical administrator, editor and author. I am a musician since 2007 and have played with several Lebanese bands at all major concert venues. I listen to a ton of music from all sorts of music genres, you can check my Last.fm page for more on that: http://www.last.fm/user/PatrickSaad
