With their 3rd single that sizzles the speakers and heats up your emotions, GreenblacK vows to forever ignore those showoff types who are always exhibiting their minimal achievements with ‘Not Today‘.

GreenblacK is a high voltage Los Angeles, California-based metal band that is led by Haifa, Israel-born lead vocalist/guitarist Yohai Portal.

Like every song we’ve written so far, the process was somewhat backwards.

It just happened to be how we flow naturally.” ~ Yohai Portal

Not Today‘ from bass-shredding Los Angeles-based metal band GreenblacK, is a fake-slashing effort that gets a topic off their chest that has been burning deep inside for too long. With so many humans trying to impress when they are actually just lying through life to get money and attention out of others, this is an important message that has you feeling so inspired by this extra loud experience.

Knowing what is real and what isn’t, is the vital key that will open so many doors that can lead you in different directions.
