Russian groove metal five-piece Be Under Arms unveils a music video for “The Tsar”, a brand new single taken from their upcoming album “Red Wave Is Coming”. Watch the video below.
Be Under Arms is a Russian five-piece playing groove metal with metalcore and melodic death metal influences. Formed in 2013, Be Under Arms have released three full-length albums and performed on stage with bands such as Butcher Babies, Jinjer, Infected Rain, Caliban and many others. One of the most outstanding features of the band must surely be their indestructible vocal duo Anna Logacheva/Vladimir Nasonov providing both, clean and unclean vocals.
Be Under Arms have always been interested in historical events, therefore the band decided to take this lyrical direction and introduce different historical periods through their new album “Red Wave Is Coming“, due out April 5. For example, the title track of the album tells the story of the last Russian Tsar Nicholas II who was, together with his family, placed under house arrest during the Russian Revolution and murdered by the Bolshevik secret police.
Compared to their previous releases, “Red Wave Is Coming” will be, according to the band’s guitarist Stanislav Shtrikh, “much more hardcore than metalcore”. Besides the more conceptual lyrical approach, the album will also introduce new elements, including folk and oriental motifs. Listen to the band’s latest single “The Tsar” sung in their mother tongue Russian below.
Earlier this year, the band announced a European “Red Wave Is Coming Tour 2019” for April in order to celebrate the release of their new album. Special guest for these shows will be modern death/thrash metal band MĀRA from Latvia/Germany. See the dates here.
