Myrath (Arabic: ميراث meaning "inheritance"), first known as X-Tazy , is a Tunisian blazing desert metal band> formed in 2001 by guitarist Malek Ben Arbia, from Ezzahra>.
The thirteen-year-old guitarist Malek Ben Arbia formed X-Tazy in 2001 with two of his childhood friends: Fahmi Chakroun (drums) and Oualid Issaoui (guitar), each fourteen years old. They then recruit Zaher Ben Hamoudia on bass and Tarek Idouani on vocals. During the first two years, they play covers of blues, heavy metal and death metal bands.
In 2003, Elyes Bouchoucha joined the group as keyboardist and singer to replace Idouani while Issaoui left the group. With this new composition, Myrath goes to make concerts by only doing covers (very often pieces of Symphony X which is their favorite band).
After several years, they begin to create their own music in a progressive metal style influenced by oriental music. In March 2005, after several changes of members, the group released Double Face, album produced by the group itself and only released in Tunisia.
