Gloom core trio Johnny The Boy are unveiling another dark song to the world called »Druh«. The track is a tribute to Witold Pilecki (aka Druh) which means comrade, a song about bravery and sacrifice for a greater purpose above your own existence.
The song is taken from the band’s full-length »You« which will be released via Season Of Mist on June 9, 2023 and can be viewed HERE.
Johnny The Boy comments: “A homage to Witold Pilecki.”
Although the band contains members of Crippled Black Phoenix, the music of Johnny The Boy took a whole different direction. It’s creepy, heavy, dark and full of diabolical black metal screams from none other than Belinda Kordic. Together with Justin Greaves and Matt Crawford, the band created an album with Bathory style elements, a touch of “Satyricon black’n’roll” and a bit of fast Motörhead.

Born from a simple idea, and eventually coalescing over the last couple of years into a fully-formed entity, Johnny The Boy make music that hurts. Armed with a scabrous but sculpted blend of ice-cold black metal, excoriating sludge and sinewy, white-knuckle rock’n’roll, the trio’s musical identity has arrived, perfectly imperfect and ready to eviscerate. Formed around a creative core of vocalist Belinda Kordic, guitarist Justin Greaves (both members of Crippled Black Phoenix) and bassist Matt Crawford (CBP alumnus and live bassist), Johnny The Boy began life as an instinctive grab for something darker and nastier.
Recorded at Chapel Studios, Lincolnshire, UK and Kapsylen Studio, Stockholm, Sweden.
