French heavy rock shamans Appalooza share a brand new music video for »Snake Charmer« taken from their sophomore album, »The Holy Of Holies«, released on February 5th, 2021 via Ripple Music.

The band comments: “We are proud to unveil our brand new music video for »Snake Charmer«!
We thank Jeremy Bleunven from Abyss Media for making this music video. It’s the third time we pitch in together, it’s always a pleasure! We also thank Vanessa for helping us during this shooting, Gaya alias “Poukouniou” for her availability, her kindness and her professionalism. And we thank Laurent Boas Bis who has allowed us to meet and work with this beautiful, quiet and stunning “Daisy”, the reptile!
This experience has removed all prejudice against this category of reptiles. We hope you’ll enjoy this new one. Feel free to share and spread it out!”

Recorded by Adrian Bernardi at Le Faune Studio, Saint-Uniac, Brittany, France.

Appalooza describe themselves as “a long-gone stallion speeding after a lost freedom”. Exuding confidence and firepower from the get-go, the French trio takes its cue from the alt-heavy firepower of the likes of Alice In Chains, Black Rebel Motorcycle Club or Them Crooked Vultures, propelling themselves with a creativity and sense of direction that are the essence of great bands.

Their new album »The Holy Of Holies« set the tone for a powerful 9-tracker with thick riffs and aggressive, punk-infused rhythms combined to Sylvain Morel’s Stanley-esque vocals, providing an intense and immediate feeling of freedom to anyone listening. In the background, spirituality and ancient myths color a spacious sound that nonetheless worships at the altar of modern and unwaveringly hard-hitting heavy rock.

Appalooza released their first two demos »Squamata« and »Chameleon« respectively in 2013 and 2014, further to which they embarked across the pond for their first ever US tour, taking them to Colorado, Nevada and California. Fired up by a brand new energy ensuing from this successful experience, the band officially released their eponymous debut in 2018, quickly followed by a second North American taking them from the Midwest lands to the Pacific Coast.

Some hundred shows later, Appalooza signed to Californian powerhouse Ripple Music for the release of their sophomore album »The Holy Of Holies« in early 2021. The beginning of a new era driven by an album that perfectly embodies the trio’s musical and visual reincarnation, through an intense sonic escape and ultimately, freedom.

Appalooza is:
Sylvain – Guitar, Vocals
Tony – Bass
Vincent – Drums
The Horse – Arrangements / Backing Vocals
