Car Bomb released their third album ‘Meta‘ late last year. The album was produced by Gojira frontman Joe Duplantier at his very own studio in Brooklyn, named Silver Cord Studio. Check out the artwork below and have a listen to the album here.
Back in 2010 vocalist Michael made a documentary called ‘Why You Do This‘, which you can check out on YouTube, which focuses on Car Bomb‘s (and other metal bands) struggles with creating heavy music that doesn’t have the mass appeal of more mainstream genres. It also showcases false realities of touring – the financial setbacks, and having to balance your nine-to-five job with the desire to be a full time musician, but ultimately it focuses on passion and unity of the metal crowd as the driving force through any hardships. It features some really great names in modern metal, including Lamb Of God and Gojira.
Check out one of their tracks ‘Secrets Within‘ here:
If you like what you see/hear then stay tuned because the band will be returning to the studio to work on new music, and will return to Europe/the UK in the summer.
