Tulsa, OK metal band Thirteen Minutes is proud the premiere of the lyric video for ‘Machaira’ the track comes of their new digital ep and can be seen below.
Thirteen, this number conjures up several images depending on who is observing it. Every thirteen minutes, one American will take their own life. Every thirteen minutes, someone in America dies in a motor vehicle accident. Every thirteen minutes, a woman dies of breast cancer and thirteen minutes is the time the warning sirens give before a tornado hits.
Insert Thirteen Minutes, the metal band from Tulsa, OK taking on the significance of thirteen in the spiritual realm. Thirteen Minutes is the time it takes every day to be spiritually fit. Thirteen is the number of great blessing. The number thirteen is the number of new life. God’s number (seven) together with man’s number (six) = Thirteen. The number thirteen is the difference of what man can do and what God can do.
The dichotomy that is thirteen, perfectly describes Thirteen Minutes as they work together to infuse such dichotomy into their music blending traditional elements of metal with a touch of post hardcore and nu metal in an effort to expand their sound beyond any particular genre definition.
Forming in Tulsa, OK in early 2016 out of the ashes of former projects, Thirteen Minutes aims to blend brutality with harmony, commercial and underground, the old and the new; taking on the sinful and the sacred. Let the dichotomy begin!
The final month of 2016 sets the stage with their first single release on Rottweiler Records. 2017 sees Thirteen Minutes prepare for their freshmen full length release recorded at Simpson Studios in Broken Arrow, OK.
“Rottweiler Records is “home.” We knew that the moment we met up with Shawn Browning that Rottweiler is somewhere we wanted to be. Thankfully, they feel the same way about us.” – Kucinski added.
Thirteen Minutes is set to battle on each and every stage in their path using their music to take on the darkness and infusing it with the light; Depression/Hope, Sin/Redemption, Darkness/Light, Evil/Good….The Dichotomies of Life. Let the battle exercise begin!
The band consists of: Michael Rowley – Vocals, Aaron Smith – Lead Guitar, Horace Young – Rhythm Guitar, Jamie Kucinski – Drums, John Walker – Bass
