Martyr Art Stream New Song "Thundering"

Today Metal Underground is proud to premiere "Thundering" from Industrial metal artist Martyr Art, a project of Joe Gagliardi III.

Joe comments:

"Thundering" is inspired by war and the overwhelmingly dystopian direction our world is heading towards. The song also presented the opportunity to collaborate on lyrics with my dad, who served in the Vietnam War. The lyrics that he wrote are based on his experiences during the war and coming home, while the lyrics I wrote are a reflection of the storms ahead.

Listen to the track and pre-order the album here.
