Emirati band hopes to rock Madison Square Garden

Metarust released their new single, “Hollow” which showcased the band’s unique sound.

Metarust has been playing for almost 13 years now, first coming together when Saif met bassist Marwan El-Messeery, 25, at school. After discovering a shared love of music, the two roped in Saif’s brother, drummer Samir, 22, and began learning music together.

They began playing at school talent shows as kids, eventually progressing to stages at Ibn Battuta Mall and Global Village as teens. After that, they performed wherever they could, even once performing at an Indian wedding.

The brothers are both audio engineers, earning their degrees from SAE Institute Dubai. Finding time to play together while going to college proved difficult for the band, as El-Messeery pursued his higher education in the UK in 2016.
