Tulsa, OK metalheads Thirteen Minutes are proud to premiere the music video for their single, “This Life,” today on HM. The band, currently signed to Rottweiler Records, released a free download of the track for free over at Noisetrade. The band signed to Rottweiler in late 2016 after forming earlier in the year, and 2017 will see the release of their debut album, recorded at Simpson Studios in Broken Arrow, OK.

HM spoke with drummer Jamie Kucinski about the song:

The song and video for “This Life” has been a great labor of love for us. We’ve been through several transitions over the course of the last year and a half. This song is the culmination of all of those transitions. We believe it is a great look into what this band has become and a sneak peek into what is to come.

We cannot give away too much regarding the upcoming release, but we can promise the songs will be filled with groove, passion and purpose. We hope to inspire our listeners to roll down their car windows and crank up Thirteen Minutes.

Thirteen Minutes is scheduled to play Serpent Stomp Festival on April 22 with Project 86, Grave Robber, Rival Choir and more in Owasso, OK.

Initially shunned by both believers and non-believers, they were fighting for their spot at the table, ultimately building a legacy that would go on to change the genre forever. HM presents an oral history of the beginning of Christian metal music, featuring Guardian, Tourniquet, Holy Soldier, Whitecross, and, of course, Stryper.
