Officially launching in 2018, Las Vegas based Madzilla LV deliver a hefty mix of melodic, classic thrash-metal, reminiscent of the likes of Megadeth, Metallica and Iron Maiden.
With just one release under their belt, the members of Madzilla LV are no stranger to the music industry; with a hunger for live music and seeking to transcend their music through all ages, Madzilla LV have so far presented their ideology to crowds at over 40 live shows, with the members of Madzilla LV also having combined resumes including world tours at venues such as Budokan (Tokyo), Razzmatazz (Spain), Encore Theatre (Las Vegas) and opening slots for Alice in Chains, Def Leppard, John Fogerty, and Mexican heavy metal band Transmetal with their previous endeavours.
An unfortunate car accident in 2010, in which David Cabezas, creator of the band, lost a great childhood friend, lead to the creation of the band’s earliest single “Judgment Day”, a song dedicated to the final moments of life, and the loss of a loved one.
Other singles, such as their most recent single “Vengeance”, criticise a selfish society that seeks power beyond all else, and the repercussions it creates.
It is that track that gets its video premiere today. Check it out below as well as some details from the band about the track and video.
1. Can you give us some insight into the story behind the track Vengeance?
The song “Vengeance” criticizes selfishness and power hunger. Most people may relate to the struggle of working for a boss instead of a leader or even just interacting with people who are only helpful when they see great profits for their own. Those types of experiences lead us to express feelings of helplessness towards a power-hungry society metaphorically.
Madzilla’s “Vengeance” can be described as the unleashed wrath seeking justice.
2. How about the video itself? Where did that take place?
The Video is a recollection of highlights from Madzilla’s latest tour alongside Metal Legends Soulfly, in February 2020.
It’s footage from shows in several cities, including Denver, Colorado Springs, Grand Junction, Las Vegas, Long Beach, West Hollywood, Seattle, and Portland.
3. What made you want to use that footage?
We really enjoy touring because of how much interaction we get with fans from so many different places.
Making records, and shootings videos in a film studio is fun too, but nothing compares with the one on one interaction you get with fans when on tour.
That’s what we’d like to share, and invite everyone else to join the fun on our future tours!
