It always feels good to get back to metal. Grimaze’s latest music video for “Bleeding Earth” pulls in everything you love about metal and slugs you with it like quicksand dragging you under. The video follows an intense story closely related to the environmental theme of the song.

The Bulgarian-based band formed in 2013, and, in 2016, released their first EP, a six-song behemoth called Dreammares. In 2018, they release their first full album, Planet Grimaze, where you’ll find the single for “Bleeding Earth.”

Interestingly, and in accordance with the theme of the music video, Grimaze started an initiative in their home country encouraging fans to clean waste from nature in the mornings after concert nights. The initiative has since gathered thousands of followers and has already contributed to the removal of over 800,000 liters of garbage from the environment.

The band is currently on tour in Europe throughout September.

  • Sept. 17 – Copenhagen, Denmark
  • Sept. 18 – Göteborg, Sweden
  • Sept. 19 – Oslo, Norway
  • Sept. 20 – Malmö, Sweden
  • Sept. 21 – Erfurt, Germany
  • Sept. 22 – Cottbus, Germany

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