There is some heavy Bolt Thrower vibes on this new single by Vietnamese death metal band Thánh Dực.
“After months of being locked in a recording room, now Thánh Dực could proudly announce the release of the new single “Bóng Ma Rừng Già – The Phantoms of Jungle”. This is the first song we jammed together when the band was founded in 2019 on the idea of embracing nationalism and war themes with the old school death metal in the 90s era (Bolt Thrower, Dismember, Entombed). After nearly 2 years since the band’s founding, the final pieces of Thánh Dực’s lineup were completed with massive support from Phú, Huyên (drummers), Hưng (vocalist), and Hào (bassist). We have made such a great debut in Mortal Kombat and the “Wings of Chaos” live session. At the end of 2021, the pandemic hits hard and it was the perfect time to do the recording because live gigs were forbidden during that time.”
