“Suicide is not the answer,” I told my friend.
But he insisted it was and we lost the quiz by one point.
the following is a statement from Joel Birch, lead screamer of The Amity Affliction, on their newly released song “chasing ghosts”;
“I wrote Chasing Ghosts as a narrative based wholly around someone that has committed suicide and has passed onto the other side. It’s a story that I hope people will see for what it is; an example in song of why you should turn to someone close and talk instead of taking that last fatal step towards death prematurely. I just want to reiterate to people that once you’re gone, that’s it. There’s no ghosts. There’s no heaven, no hell, just finality and the wreckage left behind in the wake of their decision.”
I really want the ignorant people to know that this is what your so-called “devil music” is singing about… suicide prevention… while societys musical icons such as Lady Gaga and Nicki Minaj are singing about getting drunk, sleeping around and doing drugs. Im sick of being unfairly judged on my musical preferences when its clearly the more moral and decent choice. Music is a form of art, and art is an expression of emotion, and at least from my perspective, hardcore is a hell of a lot more emotional than that modern radio shit… most of it anyway.
So before you judge my music, have a good look at yours and see who’s is REALLY damaging this world.
This is the most incredible music-related post I’ve seen on Tumblr in quite some time. And I totally agree with this; I believe people judge heavy music way too quickly.
Come on guys, Hitler wasn’t all that bad…
After all, he killed Hitler.
