“We didn’t just destroy the song by lowering the tone – we added Kazakh national instruments to the mix (kyl kobyz and shankobyz (vargan), reworked the solo, and tried to add extremeness, preserving the spirit of the unsurpassed original!
The video itself is a tribute to the crazy metalheads of Kazakhstan who are almost ripping their bodies at our gigs. Mosh, slam, stage diving, and other madness – watch the video! Guys and girls, we are proud to be part of such a killer movement!
