Thunder’s Cave, the metal core band from Nongstoin, is going a few notes lower this season to record a cover music video for Christmas.

The five-member band is working with Nongstoin-based Khmih Creative Society, which fosters art and creative expression and promotes young artistes, for the Christmas music video. “The song is a cover of Mary did you know written by Mark Lowry in 1984. It talks about the coming of Jesus our Saviour. Sometimes there are misconceptions about how we celebrate Christmas today with worldly pleasures. But this is against the will of God,” said band manager Pdiangbok Diengdoh.

The song was recorded at Groove Pro Studio in Nongstoin and was mixed and recorded by Maitphang Syiemiong. When asked about the release date, the band members said they want it to be a surprise. “Soon before Christmas,” was what Diengdoh had to say.

Formed in 2012, Thunder’s Cave is probably the first Indian metal group to record a Christmas video. Over the years, only a few metal bands globally have turned their inverted crucifixes around and switched from the heaviest, loudest and most rip-roaring odes to mellowed Christmas songs.
