Riddlebreak release dark visual opus for ‘Allegiant’

Progressive-influenced Metalcore heavyweights Riddlebreak  unleash their music video for Allegiant

Hot on the heels of their recent single release for “Allegiant”, South Africa’s Riddlebreak will release their dark visual opus to this epic track today Friday, 29 November 2019.

Inspired by “The First Heretic” by Aaron Dembski-Bowden, the concept spirals around the dark otherworldly forces that surround us. It is our unity and belief in each other that gives us our power to rise above the darkness!

Jade Osner (Vocals) states that “as long as we have unity, we are strong. It’s a song for all those that feel out of place in this lonely world. I want our fans to know that no matter your situation, no matter how isolated you feel, no matter how different you are … we will always find others who feel the same way! No matter how insignificant, the smallest common goal can start the biggest chain reaction.”

Allegiant is available on digital platforms HERE


Stand together
Blood for the Blood Gods

Skyfall begins
This planet starts shaking
Clouds break open
The end soon beginning
Our hunger for blood
Stronger than pride
Our hatred of mankind
The reason we Fight

We are sick, Tempered
Ripped From the void
Your gods
Ours will destroy
Unholy slaughter purely justified
This world the theatre of Genocide

We are legion
The mouths of the ones
Whose names you don’t speak
We are the destroyer
Remember these words
Sanity is for the weak

The Power of the warp
A curse and a blessing
Blame your false idols
For the power you’re missing
Now fall
fall to the ground
Prey to your Emperor
Where is he now?


Riddlebreak calls the dark void somewhere between Pretoria and Johannesburg (South Africa) their home.  Since its original inception ten years ago, it has taken four member changes as well as two shifts in musical orbit to bring this current collective of weirdos together – and they have  been inseparable since. Over the last 7 years they have snowballed to break minds, sub-genres and necks. It is difficult to put Riddlebreak in a box because the sound of an injured bear hurtling through space is not considered a genre in most circles.

Since its birth, the music has forged a trajectory within metal, remaining close to its progressive and metalcore neighbours. They draw inspiration from many curiosities, from hedgehogs to collapsing stars – always searching and exploring. Riddlebreak tests constructs, whether it be society, gender stereotypes, gravity or what constitutes the perfect potato salad. Their ever-contrasting ideas and sounds make Riddlebreak difficult to compartmentalise but impossible to ignore.
