Moscow Death Brigade

Techno/rap/punk (“Circle Pit Rap”) | Moscow

MOSCOW DEATH BRIGADE – the ski-mask wearing techno/rap/punk crew, is dropping a brand new song “Ruder than Croc”, which features LOS FASTIDIOS and their front woman Elisa Dixan. This is the second single for the upcoming 4th Studio album by the band “Radio Hope”. The album will see a release on Vinyl, CD and Digital in Fall 2023 through Fire and Flames Music (Germany) and Rebel Sound Records (US).

The new track is the first time MOSCOW DEATH BRIGADE features female vocals in their music with Elisa Dixan’s clear singing balancing out the usual aggressive rap flow of MDB’s MCs. As befits many of MDB’s and LOS FASTIDIOS’ hymns the track also features powerful chants and singalongs by both crews including LF’s frontman Enrico bellowing together, something live-show goers should look forward to and prepare to sing along! Musically the track dips into the Rave, Synthpop and Disco categories, which is a departure from the previous single’s EDM and Big Beat sounds.

On 31/8/23 MDB already released a video from the first outtake of the new album, “Bass of Doom” feat. Hoya Roc from MADBALL.

The upcoming “Radio Hope” album will contain 10 tracks that double down on the electronic sound and aggressive rapping that the band is known for, however the band balances it out with more melodic themes and use of acoustic guitar added throughout the mixes, as well as adding powerful female singing vocals to tie it all together. For the first time MDB are bringing a variety of featuring artists to their tracks. From the legend of NY Hardcore Hoya Roc (formerly of MADBALL), to Elisa Dixan of the joyful LOS FASTIDIOS among others.

The first part of the album release tour by Destiny Tourbooking in Autumn 2023 will bring the MDB sound to 16 gigs mostly across Germany with more dates announced for 2024.
