France's most thunderous heavy rock trio APPALOOZA releases the new single taken from their third studio album "The Shining Son", to be released this October 20th on Californian label Ripple Music. Feel "Unbreakable" now!
"The song is about the People uniting and trying to fight a demon known as "The Horse", but it is unbreakable. The People are trapped and doomed to failure. There is no hope but they stay united... Even if failure is inevitable, the three of us stick together. We become unbreakable." - Appalooza
"The Shining Son" is the sequel to APPALOOZA's 2021 Ripple Music debut "The Holy of Holies" and weaves its storyline around enigmatic Biblical references and a fascinating cinematic approach, presenting eight massive-sounding tracks that subtly blend stoner rock, grunge rock and the trio's trademark tribal percussions. Propelled in an exhilarating stampede of thick metallic riffs, rumbling grooves, multi-layered rhythms and frontman Wild Horse's dazzling baritone vocals, Appalooza deliver their most audacious album to date, a sonic tour de force that will cement their reputation as one of France's most creative heavy rock outfits of their generation.
About the album them, the band explains: "After the awakening and arrival of The Horse aka Azazael on Earth narrated in our latest album 'The Holy Of Holies', 'The Shining Son' tells how The Horse exercises its power and how it sows chaos towards the populations. Here again, we are talking about religion and perdition. Indeed, the Pelican as told in the first track represents The Christ who feeds his little ones aka the people. But his powers are weakened and his wings are damaged. He can no longer fly and get food to feed the starving people. The after-effects of a violent childhood are for life. This album is some kind of emotional liberation going through fear, escape, counterattack, violence and anger. It is the testament of a bygone era, the legacy of the past on the present, the cure for the future, and denounces the family and social imprisonment of an era." ► Watch latest videos "Pelican" and "Wasted Land"
