In such an atypical moment caused by social isolation, the legendary Thrash metal band from São Paulo, Korzus, has just made available to its fans a new single and a cinematographic videoclip. The petard entitled “You Can’t Stop Me” causes chills in the listener and carries a strong message about human conduct. The concept of the videoclip was developed together with the renowned director Leo Liberti, who signs several international projects.

The band, which has iconic albums in its discography, such as “Mass Illusion”, “Ties of Blood” and “Discipline of Hate”, is one of the biggest names in Brazilian metal and participated in the great festivals in the country, with memorable performances in the legendary “Monsters of Rock” and “Rock in Rio”, besides having performed shows all over Europe and the United States in almost four decades of services provided to the world metal.

The single presents the powerful sound that marked the trajectory of success and suitability of the group. The track is a composition by the guitarist Heros Trench and the drummer Rodrigo Oliveira, and the lyrics were written by Marcello Pompeu. Guitars were recorded at Mr. Som Studio. Drums and bass, at Dharma Studios, while Antônio Araújo recorded his parts in his home studio. Mixing and finishing were done at Mr. Som and Dharma Studios.

The videoclip was directed, created and produced by Leo Liberti, from Libertà Filmes. The professional has worked on videoclips of world renowned bands, such as Megadeth, Dee Snider, Europe, Nazareth, Angra, among others. “Metal has its own language and a very objective origin. It’s a kind of directed hate used to find your inner warrior, a hate used to find love. However, people use hate for hate, as an escape valve, they have no tolerance, patience or kindness. This energy must be directed and it’s necessary to show that what goes around, comes back around.”, comments the director.

The work was based on Oroboros, a mystical symbol represented by a snake or a dragon that bites its own tail. One of the main interpretations is that the serpent represents the infernal world, while the circle means the celestial. The cyclical karma of the message is that what you do, you receive, whether good or bad, and this is represented in the videoclip scenes. The main thing is that when you change a life for the better, you are also changing yours.

The music video for “You Can’t Stop Me” has many special guests: the actresses Pamela Punch and Fernanda Ferrer and their respective partners, Renan Schueroff and Vander Caselli; the performer Christian Cavalera, son of the legendary drummer Iggor Cavalera; and Henrique Mello, who is part of the Korzus crew. “The idea of inviting Pamela and Renan came from Rodrigo. Christian was invited by me because I’ve been a fan of his performances for a long time. The other actors were invited by our director.”, says the lead singer, Marcello Pompeu.

With their newest single, Korzus intends to transmit an alert for our society and a message of hope so that everyone can rediscover themselves in this ‘new normal’ and try to improve their interpersonal relationships, to dissipate hate and spread respect for others.

“No one of us are as strong as all of us together”
