Today, HM is proud to premiere the latest music video from metalheads Madzilla. The song represents what lies ahead for Madzilla; Vengeance, an EP released in 2019 just a year after the band formed, is the forefather to “The Last Goodbye,” and the new song points to the future of the band. The self-described melodic thrash metal group also welcomes Australian vocalist Natalie Brown on to the track.

The song itself wrestles with keeping your soul afloat in times of pain. We spoke with vocalist David Cabezas more about this:

“The Last Goodbye describes the frustration that arises when trapped in one’s own world. The inability to see the light when surrounded by it, fixating on the bad, will completely erase all the good. When every night carries the same pain, ‘The Last Goodbye’ represents giving in to this limitless sorrow.”

If you dig the track, you can find more about the band’s releases and from their website.


Neck Deep

The Pop-Punk Silver Lining

"I would hope from all of this madness we will come out of it and we're better equipped to understand and have compassion for each other." Releasing a new album during an historical epoch is certainly unique, and, for Neck Deep's 'All Distortions are Intentional,' the band looks to the future with a hopeful – and, yes, unique – approach.
