Slave To Sirens is a band from Lebanon that features an all-female lineup – and while their career has been full of exciting moments, there has also been a lot of uphill battles along the way.
A documentary titled Sirens is coming out that explores the band’s career thus far. Per the film’s official website: “On the outskirts of Beirut, Lilas and Shery wrestle with friendship, sexuality and destruction in their pursuit of becoming thrash metal rock stars. SIRENS is a feature documentary starring the Middle East’s first female metal band, Slave to Sirens.”
While there are those who have strived to censor the band, Slave To Sirens have continued to push forward and create thrilling thrash metal. An official trailer for the film has recently came out, and you can check it out for yourself below. If you are interested in seeing the film for yourself, here are the current North American screenings for Sirens:

More representation in any media means that an art form will only grow stronger and feature greater creativity. Recently, Jinjer singer Tatiana Shmailyuk talked about how cool it is to see women in the world of heavy metal. Arch Enemy singer Alissa White-Gluz has also commented on women having more of a presence in metal. Among the comments she made, Alissa shared, “That is true of all aspects of popular culture, not just metal. There is a paradigm that women are forever the muse, never the artist. I love that we can actually be both.”
