Dymytry release their video for new single, a cover of “Legends Never Die”, out now, new album “Five Angry Men” out 26th Jan, 2024 on AFM Records.

A music video for their new single, a cover version of “Legends Never Die”, is now premiering below. Dymytry vocalist Alen Ljubić comments:

“We enjoy doing covers, especially songs that are originally written for another genre. We did it with “Somebody’s Watching Me” on “Revolt”, which turned out really cool. As we were talking about doing a possible cover to include on “Five Angry Men”, Jirka mentioned “Legends Never Die”. I didn’t know the song at first, even though I’m pretty open minded when it comes to music. We all felt it was the right thing to do since we enjoyed the original song so much. It’s a challenge to make your own rendition of a popular song, we love challenges. I think we succeeded in making it sound like our own song, giving it our style and vibe. I bet our fans will enjoy it.”

When Czech metal band Dymytry released their successful album “Revolt” in English for the first time in autumn 2021, asserting their claim to international fame, the release met with positive reactions from countless music magazines. This coup succeeded thanks to their signing of vocalist Alen Ljubić in combination with a cutting-edge mix of powerful modern metal, intelligent lyrics and impeccable craftsmanship. Dymytry’s success story, which has continued across the whole of Europe, has also included tours with Pantera, Lordi and Hämatom, among others, as well as a sold-out anniversary concert at Prague’s O2 Arena in November 2023 with 13,000 tickets sold. Now the five-piece has upped the ante: Their latest English-language album ‘Five Angry Men’ has been scheduled for release on 26 January 2024, supported by Dymytry’s first headlining tour outside the Czech Republic in January 2024.

Before we continue to reveal the mystery of this unusual band any further, let’s first of all explain the unusual album title. Do Dymytry really consist of the five angry men on some kind of metal crusade to put the fear of God into the rest of the world? The musicians’ martial outfits and their scary masks could lead to this assumption. Their ambitious, frequently socio-critical lyrics also deliver a clear message:

“The title ‘Five Angry Men’ refers to our wild image, but also addresses the increasing destruction of our planet by mankind in a satirical way,” explains Ljubić, adding: “At the same time, we don’t take ourselves overly seriously, although you’d be forgiven for assuming otherwise, looking at our appearance. Dymytry have a wide range of different facets, which include both serious and tongue-in-cheek material. In addition, there’s always plenty of entertainment and partying going on at our shows.”

The band’s brand-new metal statements include “In Death We Trust” about Robert Oppenheimer’s development of the atomic bomb and its destructive impact, the adrenaline-fuelled, highly motivational ‘Dead Living Dead’, as well as the anti-war number “1939” which remembers the beginning of World War II and talks about the real worry that current developments could result in an uncontrollable escalation. The first single “Enemy List”, already released on 20 October 2023 to ease the wait for the new album, is about protection from online bullying. The fast-paced “Everything Is Black” will be out as the second single and is sure to cause rampant circle pits at future live shows. Probably the most unusual number on this album is the title track “Five Angry Men” with its experimental elements, eloquent rap vocals and harsh metal guitars, while “Wake Me Up (Before I Die)” succeeds in wrapping its social criticism in an atmospheric party flair. Their latest offering is rounded off by the cover song “Legends Never Die”, featuring a contemporary metal guise courtesy of Dymytry.

“Five Angry Men” was produced by Kristian Kohle (Powerwolf, Hämatom, among others) at his Kohlekeller Studio, the artwork was designed by Steven Harrison, with Alen Ljubić contributing the booklet photos. Finally, the Dymytry frontman appropriately summarises the new album, which is guaranteed to cause a stir on the scene. Referring to the record’s motto, he explains tongue-in-cheek:

“Sometimes you need five ugly anti-heroes who don’t gloss over the ugly reality, but at least present it in good songs.”
