Formed in 2001, Motor Militia is one of Bahrain's premier heavy metal bands. In their now almost 9 year career, the group has helped rejuvenate and further their local and neighboring Heavy Metal communities: By pulling together with fellow bands, they helped to organize concerts at a pace faster than previously realized in the country.

Moreover, as one of the first Thrash Metal bands in the region to record and release an album of original material on an independent record label, they helped spread the word on the genre on behalf of the Middle East to an international audience in the process - ultimately being featured in the April 2007 issue of England's leading Heavy Metal magazine, Terrorizer, as part of their article, "Middle East Scene Report":

No matter the cultural constraints the band has encountered - nothing short of accusations of Satanism, kidnapping, and murder at the behest of the most conservative of Bahraini political officials, Motör Militia is still going strong, and still helping to promote the music they live for.
