Blitz Union – The Truth 10th September 2021 Release

Blitz Union are on fire this year bringing you another great release, this time they bring you “The Truth”

Marek, the singer of the band, says “I think, everyone unconsciously knows when they act in the name of the truth.”

 So, the truth is truly a thing and has many different levels – on the one hand, it can be about honesty, how true you are with yourself, on the other hand, in some situations it can even be your worst enemy and destroy everything. 

 To convince the average person of an urgently needed change you need to be loud and undoubtful convincing, like an unstoppable tornado. Blitz Union is a furious rock band that combines melodic pop toplines with hard rock and EDM. Using a blend of heavy guitar riffs, industrial metal overtones and melodic rock vocals Blitz Union refuses to be put into a specific genre or seen-before category – therefore they remind of bands like 30 Seconds to Mars or Linkin Park who successfully blended pop and rock.

 Thanks to artists such as Post Malone and Miley Cyrus, rock has the capacity to make a comeback. Also, Måneskin’s victory at this year’s Eurovision is proof of this. 

Band Bio

We all know the discussions around fake news, and sometimes it is really hard to judge what is true and what not. The story of Czech band Blitz Union, starting to release their upcoming second EP on October 16th 2020, truly sounds unbelievable.

In short: the singer of the band got hit by lightning, saw the future and how bad it will get. In order to get the message – it is time for change! – out to the world as loud and clear as possible, he immediately founded the mysterious group called Blitz Union with his best friends. Soon, more and more enthusiastic and determined supporters joined. Their identification mark is a black helmet, reminding of a mix between the Middle Ages and Star Wars. You can find it on their shirts, on flags, but even as tattoos.

Although heavy metal music, enriched with electronic sounds, could be seen as violent or anti, the band and their songs are far from that. Their last single “revolution” couldn’t be more current, and the music video shows exactly why: scenes from news reports showing dictators, corrupt politicians, environmental disasters, violence and death. “We are creating this union for a peaceful, but massive change”, band leader Mr. Blitz – as his followers call him – explains, “politicians and people of wealth are leading us to doom. We have to stop them. Now!”

Scientists can surely explain what usually happens to a person when getting hit by lightning. Seeing the future might not always be on the list. Believe the story of Mr. Blitz and the Blitz Union or not: The number of Blitz Union followers is growing and growing, and they are ready to change the world for the better. Loud and clear.

Or to use the band’s wording: “Are you ready for a change? Join the Blitz Union!”
