RIOT V Release Video For ‘Messiah’

Cult New York heavy metal band and godfathers of power metal, RIOT V, will release their 16th album entitled, Armor Of Light, on April 27th via Nuclear Blast.Today, the band is pleased to release an official lyric video for the third single, ‘Messiah’. The video can be viewed above.

Don Van Stavern states:

“I was figuring since it’s the 30th anniversary of ‘Thundersteel’ I would create a song in that vibe! It’s kind of like ‘Thundersteel’ 1,000 miles per hour!”

Todd Michael Hall adds:

“The lyrics are intended to capture the excitement associated with the coming of the savior.”

The album was produced by Chris “The Wizard” Collier (METAL CHURCH, FLOTSAM & JETSAM, SLIPKNOT, KORN a.o.), while the cover artwork was created by Mariusz Gandzel (CRYSTAL VIPER a.o.).
