'Khalas' is a Palestinian band from Israel that inoculates sensual Arabic beats and lyrics with aggressive metal riffs. The band members are influenced by AC/DC, System of a down, Black Sabbath, etc… and use their unique sounds to revive and adapt classics from the Arab world by such legends as Muhammad Abdelwahab, Farid El Atrache, Om Kolthum and Asmahan.
