Madagascar band “Behind the Mask” releases début single


Behind the Mask, when you first hear that name, what is the first thing that comes to mind? Well, mine is Batman, he can do no wrong. Behind the Mask is a new Hardcore/Metalcore masked band from Toamasina, Madagascar.

Yes, Madagascar, we are so happy to be hearing about bands from all parts of Africa. Lots of countries are getting into rock and Metal. Good times ahead for the scene.

Listen to their first single, The Message:

The Message

These guys hide in their masks all day, even at night and they don’t use their real names, just their nicknames. Their solo player is called STY, the riffs are handled by Lambo Sis, and the bass is Lolo Vokatra and the drummer is  Tromba while the vox is handled by Lambo Ala, he also wrote the lyrical content for the track.

Lambo Ala spoke with us about their motivation behind the lyrics and song:

The lyrics focuses on things that are going on in our nation! There is corruption everywhere you go. There is tons of traffic. There is rich people, poor people, and our government can’t do anything. Instead of helping people, they grab all the financing and promise people that we are in the right change (evolution), but they are just fucking liars. People have to help each other to survive. That is the message.

Stay tuned for more from Behind The Mask.

Rock on \m/



Name is Austin, peeps call me Austinrock. I like to interact with bands. You DO NOT have my permission to utilize any of my profile information nor any of the content contained here \m/{*¿*}\m/ …THERE…OK. I’m a huge Melodeath metal fan. I’m proud to be a METALHEAD. Metal isn’t for everybody, it’s for the chosen few. Most friends I have tell me they don’t understand why I like metal, that it is too much noise. They just going to have to listen beyond the noise and the truth is they don’t have to figure it out, it is either in you or it isn’t. Metal is my morning coffee and it’s my night sleeping pills…
