Tulsa, OK metal band Thirteen Minutes is proud to premiere the lyric video for “Self Portrait.” The band, currently signed to Rottweiler Records, is inspired by bands like Demon Hunter, For Today, and Living Sacrifice and was the band formed in February 2016 to “blend brutality with harmony, commercial with underground, and the old and the new.” The new song is the first official D45 (digital 45) song release for the band.

We spoke with vocalist Michael Rowley about the song:

“This is the moment we’ve been working so hard for. We’ve been buried in the studio for the last several weeks writing and recording. We are pretty proud of this song — and the others to come. We truly hope those that listen to this song turn the volume up and enjoy the groove.”

I’m glad I made these songs, no matter how personal they are."
