Swiss rockers CardiaC have been kicking around, banging out their street-level take on hardcore and metal and singing in Spanish since 2000. After years of grinding it out and paying their dues, the quintet recently had the opportunity to collaborate with one of their heroes: Sen Dog, of West Coast hip-hop pioneers Cypress Hill and the metal supergroup Powerflo. CardiaC toured with Cypress late last year, and Sen appears on the band's hard-hitting 2018 cut "En l.a. De Me Decían," then in March, CardiaC shot a video for the track with the rapper in Los Angeles, a long way from their hometown of Geneva.
"Being able to tour with Cypress Hill in Europe and write a song and even make a music video in L.A. with Sen Dog of Cypress Hill is one of the most surreal things that ever happened to us," guitarist Julien Emery enthuses. "We have worked and toured a lot trough the years to get here. Singing in Spanish is something that not many bookers, agents and record labels want to work with ... We are extremely thankful and honored for receiving so much support from such an amazing artist and inspiration. This song and music video shows that music is an universal language, music plays a very important role in bringing people together! From Geneva to L.A. and back! Gracias de corazón to OG Sen Dog!"
The clip was produced by Underground Secret Noise and Chimichanga, and edited by Alvaro Bros. Check it out above, and below, see Cypress Hill's badass Halloween performance of "How I Could Just Kill a Man" in NYC.
