Japanese Metal Band BRIDEAR Releases New Album 'Born Again' and Unveils Music Video for 'CULT'

BRIDE, the Japanese metal band, has recently dropped their latest album, Born Again, through Psychomanteum Records. Alongside the album release, they have also premiered a visually stunning music video for their single 'CULT,' a standout track from the record.

The 'CULT' music video showcases a captivating narrative of two witches battling for the soul of a willing victim, blending real-world elements with AI technology. The video perfectly complements the high-energy track, featuring intense guitar work, powerful rhythms, and lead vocalist Kimi's emotive singing.

Born Again serves as a testament to BRIDEAR's unapologetic heavy metal prowess, combining melodic hooks with a raw and intense atmosphere. The album features relentless guitar riffs, epic solos, and thunderous drums, delivering a powerful musical experience.

Receiving critical acclaim, Born Again has been praised by influential publications such as BURRN and Metal Hammer. BURRN hailed the album as BRIDEAR's masterpiece, while Metal Hammer commended the band for blending Japanese and Western metal influences seamlessly.
