No Gods No Masters: RIP Lux reminisces about that war-starting day in 1914 with ‘Shadows in Vienna’

Taken off his excellently spooky new nine-track debut album released on the 28th June 2021 named ‘Hauntology‘, RIP Lux breezes in quietly with so much intriguing guile on his top single called ‘Shadows in Vienna‘.

RIP Lux is an mysteriously exciting Eastern Europe-based hip-hop artist. He makes that ferocious underground sound that is fully authentic and hard hitting always, as he swarms the unsuspecting speakers like a hungry bee ready to bite down.

Ghost MC back from the dead spitting strictly revolutionary boom bap for the 21st century.” – RIP Lux

With a cinematic music video that portrays the assassination of Archduke Franz Ferdinand back on 28 June 1914 in Sarajevo, this is a gripping visual that takes you back to that fateful day which caused more ripples than an Earthquake. Your heart beats faster and you imagine what it must of been like to witness such a history-making moment.

The political objective of the assassination was to break off Austria-Hungary’s South Slav provinces so they could be combined into a Yugoslavia. The conspirators’ motives were consistent with the movement that later became known as Young Bosnia. The assassination led directly to World War I when Austria-Hungary subsequently issued an ultimatum to the Kingdom of Serbia, which was partially rejected. Austria-Hungary then declared war on Serbia, triggering actions leading to war between most European states.” – Wikipedia

Shadows in Vienna‘ from the Eastern European-based emcee RIP Lux, is a hardcore hip-hop track that is full of ear-bending bars that slams down onto your mind to remind you of this day over one hundred years ago, that changed everything. He rips the mic off its hinges on this politically-charged single, that is stacked full of heavy rhymes of the highest quality.
