EP Review – Blitz Union – Not Proud

The majestic arrangement of Blitz Union’s latest EP, ‘Not Proud’ features the bands unique blend of rock and EDM elements with catchy vocal hooks and elevating synth leads



“Why do we still think that the human race is superior to all others? Nature can live without us, but we certainly can’t live without nature. Did we forget?”

Here is what Blitz Union says about the release:

“Not proud” is the main single from our same-titled second EP. This song sums up the message of the EP dealing with topics and questions around the relationship of humans and their environment, artificial vs. natural, human-made vs mother earth. With this release, You can again expect a fusion of hard-hitting rock elements and EDM hooks, which became the signature sound of our band Blitz Union lately.”



Since the band signed with the label Dreamstart Music 6 months ago, Blitz Union has seen a steady and constant rise in new listeners who turn into devoted fans around the world. Whether in the U.S., South America, Asia or all around Europe, the band’s most popular singles catch new fascinated listeners.

The band has had successful live shows in the past, playing at festivals and supporting bands like Oomph! regularly, and they can’t wait to go on tour again. With the release of the second EP ‘Not Proud’ and many more exciting releases, videos and hopefully live shows as well to come in 2021, the band is just warming up to conquer the hearts of even more fans of their music.

Every concert of the Blitz Union is a reunion of their supporters and those who want to join. And every time the giant guy dressed all in black and wearing a Blitz Union mask hiding his eyes walks through the audience and scans everyone making sure they are eligible to join… one thing is for sure: nobody is questioning their story… and everybody is ready for a change… ready to be the change.

To use the band’s wording: “Are you ready for a change? Join the Blitz Union!”

Kicking off the EP with the track, ‘TV’, you immediately hear the techno rock vibe, where if you think Crossfaith but a little less hard but more lyrically driven with that guitar is being more specially aware but in places more subtle.

Heading into ‘Money Crazy World’ there’s more of the feel of the opener but more of a dance feel. It has a defined beat where you can’t help but imagine this would be amazing in a club setting but some of the lyrics definitely in tune with the title. When it comes to a head, the influx of more hardcore aspect comes out to play if only for a moment but it brings out so much more in the band where you are overcome with an all out assault to give you the inspiration of that cathartic release of energy which is well and truly need.

‘Human Robot’ is just one of those alternative tracks that’s hard to forget about. By now, Blitz Union have introduced you to their world and genre they’ve seemingly created and all but mastered but here, they give you a track that’s too hard to ignore because of its brilliance. The synthetic and huge sounds they’ve derived is the standout of the EP so far.

‘Plastic’ is still building the world and pulls you in to a more vastly thought out cyberpunk synth world you want more of. In addition I have to mention the lyrical aspect of the EP. It’s leaps ahead of what some artists write where they’re having pops left, right and centre about the way of living of the modern era and’Plastic’ encapsulates this in a way which is brilliantly done where they address themselves as the plastic, they make us listen to what we as humans are doing while taking this all this amazing music in.

Sometimes with an EP, the music runs its course a few tracks in but the title track still rakes you into the world that’s created by Blitz Union in such a different way because you want more from this world because there’s seemingly no shortage of inspiration and ideas. Lastly for this track, when the echo of the track in the final third mixed with the bass and drums comes into things it’s a little disappointing they don’t make it more of an anthem but the alternative choice with the harmonic guitar pays off just as well.

Not Proud is a stunning and provocative body of work in which people must listen to because in a world where this amount energy needs to be released and in this time of the world, it’s more crucial than ever to get back to a world that gives and much as this EP does.

Rating: 4/5.

Band Of The Day Interview – Blitz Union

Today for you on todays Band Of The Day Interview we have Blitz Union, a Prague based quartet which combines EDM and Rock! Let’s dive in below.

  1. If you could introduce yourselves for us, who are you?

We are Blitz Union, a new visionary music project and creative force that combines EDM elements with Rock music. The main headquarter of our Union is based in Prague, Czech Republic. Blitz Union consists of me (vocals), Shodushi (guitar), Governor (drums) and Schtorm (bass). Our message is poignant – as our lyrics highlight alarming issues that humanity faces in today’s uncertain world along with a sense of urgency, whilst providing hope and inspiration.

  1. How did you all meet?

The history of our relationship, how we got to know each other, goes way back to the past. Initially, it was not music at all what put us together. Our ways crossed because of our common “research/obsession”. And this “research” was later on the main impulse to found Blitz Union. We will need our followers to help us out with this matter, but we do not have all the data ready yet. However, you can expect revelation of the first details soon…

  1. How long have you been playing?

It was sometime in 2017 when due to unusual events that happened to me in my life, I knew what I had to do. I like to say that it wasn’t like “I want to start a band”, but more like “I must start a band”. I needed some kind of a ‘medium’ through which I could share my stories, my visions.  Since I love music my whole life, starting a new band was a clear choice. Anyway, the first record of Blitz Union was released in March 2019 (“Revolution”) so we have been playing together for 2 years officially. 

  1. What three words would you use to describe the music you play?

 Rock, EDM….. & Rock (Laughter)

  1. What are your musical influences?

We were all raised on the rock/metal bands which have been popular around

year 2000, so for example Korn, Slipknot, Linkin Park, Mudvayne, Limp Bizkit,

Rammstein, Static-X etc. The influence of these bands is undeniably audible in

our music. But we are also inspired by the new electronic, dance & trap artists who became

a big inspiration for our Union too. 

  1. What’s the weirdest thing you’ve seen during a show?

I think it was the moment when I saw our guitarist Shodushi jumping into the crowd during our show in Braunschweig, Germany last year. When performing the last notes of our song “Deleted”, he suddenly ran over the whole stage and jumped in full speed into the crowd. But since nobody expected that, he slammed one poor lady with his full weight. She was shocked, but luckily nothing happened to her. We gave her our apologies and some of our merch for free after the show and it was all OK again (Laughter).

  1. Being away from the stages since last year, where is the one place you’d visit when the restrictions are lifted?

I really don’t care where, but would love to perform SOMEWHERE (Laughter). It may sound like a cliche, but it does not matter to our Union where we are performing actually. We would love to hit the stage anywhere in the world. No specific places prefered.

  1. What’s the one record you own but wouldn’t ever admit to owning?

I think I do not own any of this kind. But that would be probably due to the fact that I do not own many physical copies in general. But once I have some like that, I will let you guys know for sure (Laughter). There is no music one should be ashamed to listen to.

  1. What have you been listening in the last few weeks?

I did not listen to much music lately. Since we are intensively working on our own new stuff, I prefer silence when I am out of the studio. Perhaps, only some chill, instrumental music. Like “Twin Peaks OST” which I have on vinyls.

  1. Are there any releases you have planned in the near future?

We will be releasing the last song of our second EP “Not Proud” in mid-April which
will close another chapter of Blitz Union.
Then we will focus with all our force to finish our first, debut full album which we
would like to release this year already as well. But you can expect more of Blitz
Union’s music in various forms to be released throughout the whole year.
