Voodoo Terror Tribe just unleashed a brand new live music video for "Lady In The Wall," cut from the band's upcoming third full-length offering, entitled "The Sun Shining Cold" and due out November 11th, 2016.
Produced by Ill Niño vocalist Cristian Machado, the 10-track album delivers in-your-face hard rock anthems, soaring ballads and alt-metal scorchers. Drummer T-Bone comments on the new video:
"'Lady in the Wall' is a tune that I and our guitarist Emir originally wrote long time ago, and then our singer Gil finalized the lyrics and vocal melodies just before going into recording. But it received its finishing touches in the studio with our producer Cristian Machado. Cristian was throwing around the term 'haunted metal' at the time, and so we ran with that; a tale of harassment at the hands of a ghost..." More...
Voodoo Terror Tribe will release third full-length offering, entitled "The Sun Shining Cold," on November 11th, 2016. Produced by Ill Niño vocalist Cristian Machado, the 10-track album is now available for pre-order via Bandcamp.
In support of the upcoming album release, Voodoo Terror Tribe released a second guitar playthrough video in a three video series, this time for "No Hell Like Home." Guitarist Emir Erkal describes the rig and guitar he used:
"The guitar I used in this video (which I also used on the recording of some clean guitar parts on this new album) is a real vintage beauty. Original ESP 400 Series Strat from the mid 80's with a classic 'V' neck featuring a maple board with 22 frets, which was set up and modified with amazing Seymour Duncan Hot Rails pick up on the bridge by my great friend and musician Roger Manzo, and it was custom painted into a white finish with blood splatter by my brother and our bass player Primer. And the perfection was completed by beautiful DR Red Devils Strings. A truly fine guitar that has the tone, feel and the look..." More...
Voodoo Terror Tribe is just one month away from the November 11th, 2016 release of third full-length offering, entitled "The Sun Shining Cold." Following the release of a new track entitled "Cell" last week (featuring guest vocals by producer Cristian Machado of Ill Niño), the band today reveals a guitar playthrough video for the track featuring guitarist Emir Erkal.
Erkal describes the guitar set-up he uses: "This guitar that I used in this video (which I also used on some of the recording of this new album and also on stage most of the recent tour), is very special to me. I guess, like every old school metal head I'm a big Slayer fan as well, and this is a limited edition LTD Slayer 'Reign in Blood 25th Anniversary' Guitar by ESP, where the body is splattered with a reproduction of Larry Carroll's artwork from the cover of the controversial and influential thrash metal album 'Reign in Blood' released in 1986.
"The headstock has a special LTD logo in the famous Slayer typeface, next to the words 'Reign in Blood 25.' Pentagram inlays are set in the lower half of the fingerboard, with the Slayer logo inlaid near the 12th fret, with the Xtra thin U neck contour, ebony fingerboard with 24 extra jumbo frets, and the fierce EMG-81/85 active humbucker pick up combo. Black hardware and Slayer/Stars inlays add to the extreme vibe. It's an axe that's sure to set ears bleeding... And I have some beautiful DR Neon Green Strings on it to complete the great sound..."

Voodoo Terror Tribe recently announced the November 11th, 2016 release of third full-length offering, entitled "The Sun Shining Cold."
Today, Voodoo Terror Tribe is revealing another new track from "The Sun Shining Cold," entitled "Cell" (featuring guest vocals by producer Cristian Machado of Ill Niño). Check out a lyric video for the song below.
Guitarist Emir Erkal states, "'Cell' is a song we've been kicking around for a while; a brainchild of our bassist Primer. It wasn't until entering the studio with our producer Cristian Machado that the song finally fleshed out into the monster it became: a guttural/melodic/schizophrenic exchange of words between an insane girl and what are either her captors, or simply the demons in her head. And an analogy of the fact that working with the Machado-nado drove us *bleeping* bat-shit crazy."
Cristian Machado adds, "'Cell' is a metal maze, you know what you're in for when you're inside but you won't figure out any of the turns upon first observation. Each part in the arrangement truly speaks on its own. The song as a whole is anthemic, the riffs are crushing, the lyrics are romantically obscene, and the stench of old school metal vibe is everywhere.
"I remember experimenting endlessly with the chord progression for the chorus. It is not easy adding unforced melody into such a metallic composition but, if you're not pushing walls you're a prisoner to them and I am so grateful to work with bands that truly want their own spin. VTT & 'Cell,' I love this song, I love this album, it's unlike anything out there." More...
On November 11th, Voodoo Terror Tribe will release third full-length offering "The Sun Shining Cold." You can pre-order the album now via Bandcamp. The 10-track album delivers in-your-face hard rock anthems, soaring ballads and alt-metal scorchers;
Produced by Ill Niño lead vocalist Cristian Machado, "The Sun Shining Cold" was recorded at Sound Wars Studios in Hoboken, NJ and mixed at Fuel Music Studios in Anaheim, CA.
"This album is possibly one of the best metal albums I've ever been a part of," states Machado. "You don't always get to work with such talented musicians who just so happen to be mature and dedicated to bringing something fresh to the evolution of the genre. I comfortably refer to them as 'haunted metal' but in all honesty they are a new breed of metal yet to be heard under this style and context. In my heart of hearts, I truly believe they are here to contribute an impressive approach and styling to the evolution of metal."
Guitarist Emir Erkal adds, "We know the scene, and the scene knows us, but we're coming at this with full force in a new way with a new sound. This is an album full of surprises, with heavy guitars and crushing drums, yet melodic and catchy tunes with layers of haunting, mysterious, electronic and industrial sounds. The record features mainly dark, twisted themes within a post-apocalyptic concept."
Bassist Primer adds, "It feels like the culmination of what we've been doing for a long time as Voodoo Terror Tribe power grooves, crushing guitars, catchy, but dark melodies - but taken to a new level." More...
New Jersey's heavy alt-rock artists from Voodoo Terror Tribe are currently on the road with Latin metal kings Ill Niño on the "15 Years of Revolution" tour.
The band is gearing up to release a new album, "The Sun Shining Cold," later this year that was produced by Ill Niño vocalist Cristian Machado. In anticipation of the album's release, Voodoo Terror Tribe is pleased to reveal a music video for new single "City of Sixes."
The clip was directed by Scott Hansen (Motionless in White, A Day To Remember, We Came As Romans) and produced by Mary Dixon and Bedelia Burris-McGrath, with co-production from Voodoo Terror Tribe and John Brennan.
Guitarist and synth programmer Emir Erkal states, "This new video is a camp-commentary on modern society, showing Voodoo Terror Tribe as something like 'bladerunners'; masquerading as musicians to snuff out a club full of party-goers for being 'just too modern.'" More...
Voodoo Terror Tribe released latest EP "A Walk in Hell" earlier this year, and today a video that the band has been working painstakingly on finally sees its world premiere.
The video for "BloodSoaked" can be seen below, thanks to Revolvermag.com. Voodoo Terror Tribe also comments:
"Our new music video for the song 'BloodSoaked' presents deliberate darkness and intensity. We meant it to be more serious and in-your-face than our previous works, as the song is our heaviest so far. So as for filming, we threw ourselves out of our East-Coast element and out into the dark-recesses of remote Ohio. Working with director Jeffrey Moore and Assistant Director Angel Alfonso of Axtravaganza Films was a welcome breath of professionalism, and the video shows it.
"'BloodSoaked' is our fastest and darkest song yet, and we wanted to present those ideas explicitly, with art and horror-flick-mysticism. We're proud of the amazing cast and the extraordinary work everyone committed in such a short amount of time. There is an interesting storyline to the film, that with multiple viewings one might discern, but even if you don't find the linear plot, the images and the atmosphere speak for themselves. Our dalliance with the horror film vibe and moderately authentic ritualism might have put the taste of blood in our mouths. There's no returning to the light after this, and everything only gets darker from here..."

“Wake of the White Devil” is off of the band's latest full-length album, “Symptoms of Sin,” which was released this summer and produced by Billy Graziadei (Biohazard/Suicide City). The band comments on the song:
“A three-way analogy between western culture as it is viewed in the middle east, the idea of what George Bush might have been thinking in 2003, and the extraordinary enjoyment of addiction to crystal meth. 75% of the world talks shit about the USA, but they do so while wearing American clothes, watching American TV shows (idol), etc. etc.... We're all Evil. We're all fucked up, we're all addicted, everyone fuck off, do a line and get on with your lives...”
The full tracklisting for “Symptoms of Sin” is as follows:
1. The Victim
