Madzilla

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.

Heaven's Metal

HM presents an oral history of the beginning of Christian metal music, featuring Guardian, Tourniquet, Holy Soldier, Whitecross, and, of course, Stryper.
