Louisiana based industrial bass act Sinthetik Messiah has just unveiled their new single, “Religious Soldier”. Sinthetik Messiah is the Cajun songwriter and sound designer, Bug Gigabyte. This two-track EP precedes a full length album due out in 2022. You’ll hear that Sinthetik Messiah blends various elements of industrial, electro, dance, rock, ambient and pop.

Here’s the video for the single.

Bug explains the meaning behind the new single “Religious Soldier”: “It is about exposing religious leaders for brainwashing, abusing their followers and specifically, how they want their flock to be ‘good soldiers’ in their own twisted version of what it means to serve God.”

Interesting to know, “Religious Soldier” also features a recording of a fake priest performing a fake exorcism on a brainwashed woman.

“Religious Soldier” is available in digital format via Bandcamp now, check below.

Since you’re here …

… we have a small favour to ask. More people are reading Side-Line Magazine than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can - and we refuse to add annoying advertising. So you can see why we need to ask for your help.

Side-Line’s independent journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. But we do it because we want to push the artists we like and who are equally fighting to survive.

If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps fund it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as 5 US$, you can support Side-Line Magazine – and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
