This song delivers brutality… and melody… It has the best of both worlds…
It’s been worth waiting for it… Coming back with a song like this is really refreshing!

En su nuevo videoclip «Home Bitter Home», irradian capacidad técnica e imaginación, un buen derroche de creatividad, cuidando mucho los detalles para ofrecer un contemporáneo metal agresivo y melódico a partes iguales.

MĀRA estrena videoclip «Home Bitter Home»

Trivia time. What do Björn “Speed” Strid of Soilwork and Six Feet Under bassist Jeff Hughell have in common? They both appeared on the 2020 EP “Self-Destruct. Survive. Thrive!” from Riga Latvia Death Thrash Groove collective MĀRA, that’s what. Four years on the band have announced a home town show with a new single in “Devil Herself”…

I can’t wait to hear a full length out of this band. This EP and the prior Therapy speak of how directly, deeply satisfying it has the potential to be, and Māra feel like a band who are going to have ever more and more to give and say going forward.

Self Destruct is another razor sharp set of rock-solid tunes that has a great deal to give any listener.

“Absolutely delighted with this guest blog from Māra, extreme vocalist, screaming coach, and student of Melissa Cross of Zen of Screaming. Here are her reflections on the therapeutic value of screaming for her and her students. We think it’s fab 🤘🏻🤘🏻🤘🏻

‘The Therapeutics of Screaming’ on Heavy Metal Therapy Blog

‘Self-Destruct. Survive. Thrive!’ is in general an excellent display of a progressive form of Death Metal with brilliant addressed topics and excellent exciting music.

The band did well in varying the tempos internally in some songs and externally between one song and the other, as well as adding to the already variant vocals of Māra Lisenko.
