MOSCOW DEATH BRIGADE - NEW ALBUM 'RADIO HOPE'
MOSCOW DEATH BRIGADE - a ski-mask wearing, techno/rap/punk crew from Russia, are releasing their
much awaited fourth studio album “Radio Hope” in October 2023, and set off on the first part of the
Album Release Tour on October 5th!
The 10 tracks from the album will double down on the electronic sound and aggressive rapping that the band is known for, however the band balances it out with more melodic themes and use of acoustic guitar added throughout the mixes, as well as adding powerful female singing vocals to tie it all together. For the first time MDB are bringing a variety of featuring artists to their tracks. From the legend of NY Hardcore Hoya Roc (formerly of MADBALL), to Elisa Dixan of the joyful Los Fastidios. The album will release digitally and on physical media – CDs and LPs will be released through a DIY label Fire and Flames Music (Germany)
Boltcutter Vlad: “Radio Hope” is still the Techno Rap Punk that you expect from us, we have metal, we have Eurodance, more traditional rap beats. We also integrated a lot of acoustic guitars into the beats this time. But here we went for a more epic sound, added a lot of melodic singing parts thanks to the talented featuring artists that we have on board, so that the people who come to see us live can sing together with us and feel themselves as a part of the Brother and Sisterhood version 2023!”
