One of the biggest names in Brazilian thrash metal, the band Claustrofobia, recently released the single "Riff Cult" on all streaming platforms and the video clip that was released exclusively by Decibel Magazine.

Closing the promotion of the single, Claustrofobia launches the playthrough of the song with guitarist and vocalist Marcus D’Angelo, produced at Swamp Loco Studios, the band's own rehearsal place.

D’Angelo uses the already classic combination Jackson RR24, EVH 5150, with EMG Pickups 81 with Giannini strings and Maccabos. With the Jackson guitar, his technically challenging style and visual elegance, D'Angelo closes with a flourish the promotion of “Riff Cult”, a single that was super significant and represented a lot of people “I couldn't not do a playthrough for this song that has Riff in the name (Laughter). We recorded in our studio in the same type of setting as the video, maintaining the proposal to respect this moment of isolation and also showing how much art helped us. The art spoke louder and we can't wait to show the world what we produced during this time of isolation. It was all very inspiring”, explains Marcus D’Angelo.
Riff Cult" was produced by renowned Brazilian producer Adair Daufembach who has worked with names like Megadeth, Angra, Kiko Loureiro, Aquiles Priester, Dirk Verbeuren and Tony MacAlpine. For Claustrofobia, the song is a tribute to the Riffs, a key component of metal. Vocalist Marcus D'Angelo emphasizes this aspect by stating “We consider a culture, a cult. It is the hook of all Metal, everything is born from the guitar riff. And Riff by Riff we are fueling our passion for Metal, fueling our desire to continue the legacy. The Riff is what addicts us in a good way. In this quarantine the love for Metal became more evident, without shows and without contact with the fans, so we decided to pay tribute and celebrate”.

The band also made available on their Youtube channel the making of the video clip "Riff Cult"

Embrio kelahiran scene musik rock underground di Indonesia sulit dilepaskan dari evolusi rocker-rocker pionir era 70-an sebagai pendahulunya. Sebut saja misalnya God Bless, Gang Pegangsaan, Gypsy(Jakarta), Giant Step, Super Kid (Bandung), Terncem (Solo), AKA/SAS (Surabaya), Bentoel (Malang) hingga Rawe Rontek dari Banten. Mereka inilah generasi pertama rocker Indonesia.
