With a worldly percussive flair amid a sonic assault of guitar and vocal raspy annihilation comes the new single from New Delhi’s ‘Nu-Metal’ militia Bloodywood titled ‘Machi Bhasad (Expect a Riot)’.
I must start with the first words I said to myself when I pressed play: ‘Holy shit!’. Yes, that’s right. The addition of the percussion to an already explosive track combines with the serene break and monstrous rhythm just gives the adrenaline a reason to flow.
Originally created for the upcoming Ubisoft game “Beyond Good and Evil 2”, Machi Bhasad is a track with a political message that celebrates the power of a new generation and its potential to be better than the last.
Screaming out as a call to action and a call for change, Bloodywood shows their meaning behind the madness with the credence of a poet and the clarity of a profit.
About Bloodywood & ‘Machi Bhasad (Expect a Riot)’
New Delhi based Indian Folk Metal band Bloodywood has released the official music video for their newest single, “Machi Bhasad (Expect a Riot).”
“Originally created for the upcoming Ubisoft game “Beyond Good and Evil 2″, Machi Bhasad is a track with a political message that celebrates the power of a new generation and its potential to be better than the last. Outside the context of the game, this song is intended as both a tribute and a call to action. It’s a tribute to musicians and leaders who inspired people like ourselves to think and act in a way that’ll benefit everyone. To question an unjust system that serves a few at the cost of the many. It’s a call to action for our generation to finish the work started by all those who came before us. To Become the straw that broke the proverbial camel’s back, and changes the world for the better.”
Bloodywood is a metal band from India known for pioneering a sound that seamlessly fuses Indian folk instruments with metal to devastating effect. Expect to hear the percussive power of the mighty Dhol, the melancholic flute, the single-stringed Tumbi and several other uncommon, yet distinctly characteristic sounds from India. A combination of thunderous Hindi/Punjabi choruses and meaningful yet unforgiving rap verses along with the ethnic instrumentation makes Bloodywood a truly unique experience.
