Zarraza releases music video for cover song of Slayer’s “Raining Blood”, thrashing hard like Slayer!

Kazakh thrashers Zarraza have released a music video – for their stunning cover of Slayer’s classic song “Raining Blood”. The song is from their upcoming covers EP ”Kreated In Blood” which comes out on July 8th.

The band states this about cover song/music video:

“Kreated In Blood is a dream come true. Now we got our own versions of our fave songs but infused with Kazakh ethnic. We not only destroyed these classics with our performance but asked friends to help us and bring some special flavor to the final result. I assure you there is no version of “Raining Blood” like ours! Even if you don’t like it – I bet you never heard anything like that!”

Hailing from Kazakhstan,  Zarraza are no strangers to breaking down boundaries. Despite facing skepticism in their early days, they have forged a crowd of loyal fans – both in their home country and overseas – clawing their way from obscurity to opening for the likes of Rotting Christ, Sepultura and Tyr. The band has been praised for being “one of hardest working metal bands in Central Asia” (The Headbanging Moose). As proud trailblazers in the Kazakh metal scene, it is only then natural for Zarraza to approach these covers in ”Kreated in Blood” by combining their unique blend of thrash, death, and groove metal with the distinctive sound of the kyl-kobyz; a centuries-old Turkic instrument.


For their take on Slayer’s classic hit, “Raining Blood”, Kreator’s “People of the Lie”, and Gojira’sL’Enfant Sauvage”, the band holds nothing back. The drones of throat singing, the twangs of a jaw harp, and – of course – the piercing tone of the kyl-kobyz are woven together with guitars, blast beats, and screaming to create a truly transcendental experience. By pairing time-honored riffs from metal with the traditional sounds of their home country, Kazakhstan. Zarraza have created something contemporary, classic, and utterly unforgettable.
