US Power Metaller LET US PREY mit ernstem Hintergrund – ’In Suffering‘ Clip

Die aus Boston stammende melodic Power Band mit Thrash Anteilen LET US PREY hat heute ein Video für den ausgekoppelten Song ’In Suffering‘, vom 2020 veröffentlichten “Virtues of the Vicious” Debüt an die Öffentlichkeit gebracht. Inhaltlich geht es um Selbstmord, der aber keinesfalls als “Lösung“ verstanden werden soll, zumal Sänger Marc Lopes (Ross The Boss) auch selbst schon unter mentalen Problemen litt, die er textlich hier aufarbeitet:

Er selbst sagt dazu:

“This is a different shade of the large palette of LET US PREY, but is very much a part of what we do,” says Lopes. “We believe heavy doesn’t always have to be barking vocals at a thousand miles a hour (which we do and love as well!). ‚In Suffering‘ is a very personal dark journey I endured while writing and recording ‚Virtues of the Vicious.‘ Dealing with depression and other aspects of mental dis-ease (as we like to call it, rather than a disease) is no easy task for myself and many. I wanted to release this song in awareness of the grossly overlooked issues of various forms of depression, anxiety and such among so many, especially teens and young adults. Suicide at the moment is at an all-time high stemming from the current state of the world. Being alone and in one’s own mind for long periods of time can bring our friend ‚darkness‘ (as I call it) to come play and wreak havoc with our well-being. So many suffer in silence and shouldn’t have to. There is help on many levels these days, and by all means, if you are at that near-breaking point, PLEASE reach out. May is Mental Heath Awareness month, so it seems right to release such a song. I would leave this tune up to the individual’s interpretation, as I think it will resonate differently for each listener. It’s a metaphorical journey into my psyche at the time of writing this. It’s actually the first of a two-part story. The latter is coming soon as well, but for now please check it out and spread the word… and remember, YOU MATTER.”
