Brooklyn, NY band Alekhine's Gun perfectly blends thrash, black metal, and death metal with subtle undertones and nods to New York hardcore of the 90's and all things extreme is back with a new single "21".
This latest single is a long awaited track following the bands 2014 …And Things Will Fall EP and it was worth the wait. Over the last 6 years, this band has grown musically and vocally. Taking all their experiences between now and then to create new music for their fans. It's heavier more on the black metal side and I'm sure it won't disappoint.
Many of you are probably wondering, "is that Maria Ruiz from Orange is the New Black?" Well then the answer is YES! Jessica Pimentel is not only a talented actress but she is also an insanely talented female metal frontwoman and performer.
“Inspired by the traditional Tibetan Buddhist prayer ‘Praises to the Twenty-One Taras’, ’21’ is a musical offering and an act of paying homage to the primordial power within by delving deeply into calling upon the forces of fierce compassion and the wrathful aspect of love and wisdom needed in times of fear and uncertainty in order to seek refuge and gain enlightenment. Reaching beyond time and space, the bond between us and the true nature of reality is unbreakable, unstoppable and eternal.” - Jessica Pimentel tells Consequence of Sound
"We are Alekhine's Gun from Brooklyn New York. This is who we are. This is what we do."
