BLACK PASSAGE Brings The Larger-Than-Life Heaviness In New Song "Left To Waste"
Black Passage hails from the Bay Area, CA and aims to be an intersection between progressive, crushing death metal and earworm-worthy alternative rock. We're premiering their new song "Left To Waste" today, which exactly fits the aforementioned description and has the added bonus of a great-looking music video.
Here's what the band had to say about the video and song.
For the "Left to Waste" video, we decided on a straight forward approach, going with a performance video. Our aim was to create a simple vessel to showcase the song, and the band as a whole. The main points of the video we sought to achieve was a dark and solemn theme brought on by the use of low lighting and tricky camera work, as well as the aforementioned presentation of the new project to the online and metal world.
The song itself is about the feeling of being left behind by the world, friends, family etc. A goal addressed when we began putting the songs together was that they should be about real life shit. So many metal bands have songs about fantastical stories and we wanted to steer away from that. Much of what led myself and many others I know to heavy music was the way that the music faced and was relatable within the realm of negative feeling. The darkest parts of life deserve to be represented, and while not all may relate, I think we look to connect with people through genuine feeling and a portrayal of all the ugliness that life brings.
