Oy Gevolt, It's Tshiribim!

We’ve covered the Yiddish metal band Gevolt before, after their first album, “Sidur,” in 2007 here and here. And, even, since their new album “Alefbase” came out in 2011, as part of the — no-joking — Yiddish metal scene here and here. But the new video for the track “Tshiribim Tshiribom” is great. I think it’s time more metal had violin solos and hand punches at Tshiribium “BOM!”

You can hear other tracks of theirs at the MySpace page.
