Their latest video “Dana Dan” is a graphic commentary on sexual assault and a call to arms to eliminate it from global society. Jee Veerey, Machi Bhasad, Yaad and Endurant are other instances of the band using their work to make an impact beyond the music and build a better world.
BLOODYWOOD is known for pioneering a sound that seamlessly fuses Indian Folk instruments with Metal to devastating effect. Expect to hear the percussive power of the mighty Dhol, the melancholic Flute, the single stringed Tumbi and several other uncommon yet distinctively characteristic sounds from India. A combination of thunderous Hindi/Punjabi and meaningful yet unforgiving Rap verses along with the ethnic instrumentation, makes BLOODYWOOD a truly unique experience.
