While gradually putting together material for a new album, Kouvola, Finland-based thrashers SOULWOUND have released a lyric video for the song “Damned”, the closing track of their second album “No Peace”. Clear and simplistic in style, the video was produced entirely in-house by the band.
Comments editor and lyricist Janne Huusari: “We all hate those oh-so trendy lyric videos that prioritize style over substance and bombard you with enough flashing, moving and spinning images and words to give you a seizure and make the lyrics damn near impossible to follow. So, we decided to innovate and put together a lyric video that actually allows you to comfortably read the lyrics at a natural pace while listening to the song. Imagine that!
Musically, the song is far from any kind of a hit single, as you could argue that it’s one of the heaviest tracks on the album, if not THE heaviest. Lyrically, it’s one of my more personal pieces, as it deals with standing by and being there for someone who has to bear the scars of a downright horrific childhood. So, in a rather roundabout way, the lyrics actually carry a positive message, and Arto‘s visceral vocal performance really brought the words to life. This shit comes straight from the heart, so please enjoy!”
