"The song is about the People uniting and trying to fight a demon known as "The Horse", but it is unbreakable. The People are trapped and doomed to failure. There is no hope but they stay united... Even if failure is inevitable, the three of us stick together. We become unbreakable." - Appalooza

"The Shining Son" is the sequel to APPALOOZA's 2021 Ripple Music debut "The Holy of Holies" and weaves its storyline around enigmatic Biblical references and a fascinating cinematic approach, presenting eight massive-sounding tracks that subtly blend stoner rock, grunge rock and the trio's trademark tribal percussions. Propelled in an exhilarating stampede of thick metallic riffs, rumbling grooves, multi-layered rhythms and frontman Wild Horse's dazzling baritone vocals, Appalooza deliver their most audacious album to date, a sonic tour de force that will cement their reputation as one of France's most creative heavy rock outfits of their generation.

About the album them, the band explains: "After the awakening and arrival of The Horse aka Azazael on Earth narrated in our latest album 'The Holy Of Holies', 'The Shining Son' tells how The Horse exercises its power and how it sows chaos towards the populations. Here again, we are talking about religion and perdition. Indeed, the Pelican as told in the first track represents The Christ who feeds his little ones aka the people. But his powers are weakened and his wings are damaged. He can no longer fly and get food to feed the starving people. The after-effects of a violent childhood are for life. This album is some kind of emotional liberation going through fear, escape, counterattack, violence and anger. It is the testament of a bygone era, the legacy of the past on the present, the cure for the future, and denounces the family and social imprisonment of an era." ► Watch latest videos "Pelican" and "Wasted Land"

APPALOOZA is a lost steed thirsting for freedom, drawing inspiration and essence from the dust of an arid desert. After a first American tour in 2015, the band galloped relentlessly and trampled the paths of the studio to record their first album "Appalooza". In the winter of 2018, the band returned from an extensive US West Coast tour and signed to Ripple Music for the release of their second full-length "The Holy Of Holies", bearing a brand new visual identity and sound. Described as "audacious and explosive" by Rock'N'Force and "a heard rocking beast of an album" by UK website The Sleeping Shaman, the heavy trio held all the cards to make a triumphant ascension among the French heavy rock scene and having them compared as "Alice In Chains meets Them Crooked Vultures" by French magazine Guitar Part.
