Wissam Al Baltaji and Dio Al Miqdad founded Battlaxe in late 2018. The band's main influence is 80's old-school thrash metal, which is clearly apparent in our first EP, "Walls of War" (June 2019). Walls of War was recorded, mixed, and mastered at Triptych Studio by Charbel Haddad, who also contributed to this masterpiece as a sessionist by placing his vocals on top of the tracks. Jake Shuker joined the band as lead guitarist two months after the EP's release, but due to the pandemic, the band was unable to perform any live shows. The band is currently working on releasing their first album, especially since the band has now been completed with the following lineup Ayham Edlbi "Guitars", Wissam Al Baltaji "Guitars", Jake Shuker "Vocals", Dio Al Miqdad"Bass", Bashir Al Khouri "Drums".
