Brotality is prepping to bring you another D45 of pounding metal madness, coupled with a brand new music video next week. Check out a teaser below.

Also check out the video interview below, that they recently did with we did with Song & Verse Ministries! The band states: We got to talk about one of our favorite songs from our favorite band and influence Mastodon! It was such a fun and unique interview! Hope you’ll check it out!

The guys in Brotality – brothers Bryce Maopolski (17, guitar and vocals) and Reece Maopolski (16, bass and vocals), along with Liam Fenton (14, drums) – have created a band that unapologetically takes its sonic cues straight from the founding fathers of metal. With tight songwriting, muscular vocals, and crushing riffs in abundance, Brotality have created a dynamic force worthy of carrying forward the Heavy Metal moniker. They cite Mastodon, Megadeth, and Alice Cooper as influences, and it won’t take long for anyone who listens to their music to be smacked in the face with an undeniable old-school sensibility.

Everyone. . . please welcome Shamash to the Rottweiler Records pack!

A common theme within metal seems to be the use of fire as way to articulate the fires of Hell, burning evil, or the nefarious. Yet, fire can also be viewed as a light source, power, and an ignition or spark to ignite others to take action. Within Jewish culture, the candle used to light the other eight candles of a Hanukkah menorah is known as a shamash. A shamash is also defined as the person who assists in the running of a temple (synagogue) or its religious services. In short, a shamash is a servant. The euphemism of the servant being a candle lighting the fires of other branches best describes the ministry of Shamash as a band, to serve and to bring light and fire to others.

Superunknown is a metal band hailing from Hyderabad, India, with members that include; Rueban Issac on Vocals, Yohan Issac on Guitars/Bass and Shawn Jacob on Drums (Session). Their musical style is a blend of alternative metal and grunge – We are exited to bring you the exclusive premiere of the new lyric video for ‘Bite The Bullet’. The track appears on the upcoming D45 which will be released via Rottweiler Records.

The lyric video covers the song Bite the bullet. Superunknown came up with the song purely from the perspective of making a heavy opener for the album. The song lyrically talks about self sacrifice; the giving up of one’s own interests in order to help others.”

Rueban Issac states:Superunknown is an alternative metal studio project that I had started in 2011, when I was without a band. I wanted a creative outlet for playing alternative metal and grunge music, outside of playing aggressive hardcore and thrash metal music (that I currently do with R.A.I.D).”
