Each song feels like an Active Rock hit in the making, while still having the grit and feverish intensity that longtime fans have come to admire from KOBRA AND THE LOTUS.

In addition, the Helsinki Vampires have unveiled their second single, ‘Cheyenna‘. Jyrki 69reveals the following about his lyrics:
“When I heard the demo of the song, I had the chorus for ‘Cheyenna’ immediately in my mind. It was like a wind whispering or a canyon echoing her name from the past. Who was she? A Native American princess? As I googled the name, it turned out that a lot of American girls under that name have gone missing. A female ghost rider story was born! Cheyenna is freedom’s child – forever.”
So hop on your bikes, let the engines roar and watch the official clip of ‘Cheyenna‘ here:
THY ART IS MURDER – release music video for ‘New Gods’
THY ART IS MURDER‘s earth-scorching fifth record, »Human Target«, is unleashed unto the world via Nuclear Blast (ROW) and Human Warfare (AU/NZ). The band offers fans the music video for the fourth single, ‘New Gods’. Directed by Elder and produced by HAUS PARTY / Elder & Todd Farley, the meta conscious video providing commentary on the ‘New Gods’ can be viewed here:
Guitarist Andy Marsh comments, “‘New Gods’ is interwoven in theme with the song ‘Chemical Christ’, discussing the idea of mental health and modern inventions’ intervention with a natural state of consciousness. The idea that social media is one of the major driving forces of increasing levels of depression in the western world was fascinating to us, and we thought what better way to use the platform ironically to discuss these ideas than by using an aspect ratio designed specifically for it. We hope you watch the clip and then put your phone down, life is better through the eye of the beholder than the lens of an algorithm.”
»Human Target« was produced, engineered, mixed and mastered by Will Putney at Graphic Nature Audio in Belleville, NJ. The artwork was once again painted by Eliran Kantor (HATEBREED, TESTAMENT,
