RockmusicRaider - Varg - Zeichen - Video Cover

Who would have thought that the RMR crew will cover the German metal band Varg one day? The ones from Bavaria, by the way. So, this is neither about their namesake from Freiburg nor about one Louis Cachet1) and his misdeeds in infamy.

Often caught in a whirlpool of some strange meandering brand of Metalcore2), Varg‘s former offerings never quite managed to convince the RMR crew. Even if they have that knack for catchy melodies and choruses to dream for. And all of that totally devoid of cheese, which is quite a … [...] Click to raid more!
