Today, HM is proud to premiere the newest lyric video for R.A.I.D’s latest track, “Soul of a Lion.” The song comes from the band’s debut album, The Strong Survive, available now from Rottweiler Records. Formed in June 2016 in Hyderabad, India, R.A.I.D. – which stands for Rueban and The Imperium Division, after vocalist Rueben Isaac – released the seven-song album in mid-July, citing influences in the realm of Madball, Terror, and Suicidal Tendencies.

Isaac spoke with HM about the track:

“This record has been an amazing journey for all of us involved, and to see it come to fruition and released is something we eagerly await. The lyric video for ‘Soul of a Lion’ is a sneak peek into our music, beliefs, and message while reminding viewers of the old-school ethics of thrash and hardcore metal.”

You can grab the album from Bandcamp.

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