PREMIERE: Indigenous Riffmakers Southeast Desert Metal Unleash Thunderous New Single ‘RAINMAKER’

Written by Emmy Mack on September 30, 2018

The world’s most isolated heavy band, Southeast Desert Metal, are making it rain riffs on their huge new track ‘RAINMAKER’.

Forged in the flames of Australia’s remote Red Centre and drawing inspiration from heavy metal greats like Black Sabbath, AC/DC and Iron Maiden, the Indigenous foursome are making an impact with a sound that’s as dangerous and distinct as their brutal surroundings.

The music video for their fresh jam, which you can catch premiering exclusively via Music Feeds below, takes place in the heart of the Aussie desert, with the band using their thunderous riffage and heavy grooves to compel the skies to rain.

“‘Rainmaker’ is about how I see the land,” explains vocalist Chris Wallace. “It’s dry. We haven’t had any rain for a while.

“In the early days, the old people had the knowledge to sing rain, to make it whenever they needed it,” he continues. “I used to have the traditional rainmaker song. One old man used to sing it but he passed away. It’s more about the story of the rainmaking; Asking for more rain for our land before it really dies. To keep our land going.

The song has been lopped off the band’s forthcoming album Break The Silence, which is due out on Friday, 23rd November.
