BAND RE­SPONSE

Metal Hammer (UK) - - Your Shout -

“It’s a com­plex is­sue, but first and fore­most we have to nor­malise it and recog­nise that there are a great many peo­ple suf­fer­ing from these kinds of men­tal health problems. They’re not weird or pussies like, un­for­tu­nately, many metal peo­ple would have you be­lieve. That’s why I started talk­ing about it. Peo­ple can look at my posts and say I’m a cry­baby or what­ever but I don’t care, I’m do­ing it for the peo­ple that need it. And there are many; some that don’t even re­alise they’re suf­fer­ing. It’s such a shame that so many peo­ple who were con­nected to this mu­sic by the fact that they don’t fit in and they don’t feel nor­mal have to take this abuse within our scene, but those peo­ple are just scared, they’re posers, and all we can do is to keep hav­ing the con­ver­sa­tion in mag­a­zines and in our lives to make sure peo­ple un­der­stand that it isn’t a weak­ness.”
