Southern California-based band Firing All Cylinders released a music video for their metalcore cover of Haddaway’s 1992 classic “What Is Love”. Gritty vocals, powerful guitar licks, and dousing the band with gallons of blood breathe new life into the synth-heavy pop anthem.

About the cover, vocalist Rix Boker stated:
“What Is Love is my favorite pop song from the 90s. I just loved the groove and feel of the song and I always thought it would make a killer rock ballad. We started out just joking about the concept but Brandon and Jeremy from Wolfe Studios thought it was a good idea to pursue. A few recording sessions later we had something we’re completely stoked about.”

The band represents the explosive sound, excitement, and intensity of heavy metal with influences from the past and present. They incorporate classic rock and roll inspired by bands like AC/DC and Black Sabbath with a dash of modern metal bands such as KoRn, Avenged Sevenfold, System of a Down, and Slipknot to build their iconic sound. In a short period of time, they have rapidly gained success with unique aggressive sounds and performances which became trademark qualities of the group.
