It’s not the country’s most well known export or even – depending on your musical taste – its best. But a heavy metal band from Iraq has been building a steady international fan base.

The group was forced to flee Baghdad during the war.

And though they’re now seeking refugee status in Turkey, their ultimate goal is to jam back home.
