Iraq Metal Band Finds Shelter in NJ

Acrassicauda has been running from the devil for the past few years. They are a heavy metal band from Iraq, were the subjects of a documentary made by a Brooklyn media company in 2007 and spent two years as refugees in Syria and Turkey. They are now legal refugees in NJ. Metallica welcomed them to their show in Newark and handed them a signed guitar that said "Welcome to America". I'd be hard pressed to find a band out there with the road stories these guys must have. Read their story in the NY Times.
