Stöj Snak announces their second full-length album and drops the first track 11 September 2020
Danish screamersongwriter quartet Stöj Snak announces their second full-length album "Life, Death and Everything in Between" and drops the first track "Fire"
The track is one of the more action-packed songs and sees the band taking it's folkpunk sound up a notch, blending in almost thrash-sounding riffs and plenty of screaming while still maintaining a catchy, melodic edge in the songwriting.
The singer/songwriter Niels has the following to say about the track:
"Given the subject matter of the song, it’s appropriate that it comes out on 9/11. A date that has been carved into our collective consciousness for how profoundly, the terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center and the following conflicts and wars have shaped the world, its politics and our self-image.
In the song, we try to examine what terrorism means, who the real terrorists are and not least what we/they are really fighting against/for. Looking back at this seemingly never ending conflict between ideologies that was amplified by 9/11 (complete with countless horrendous war crimes, human right violations and human atrocities), it seems no war has been won, no progress has been made and that the world feels even more divided now. Instead, this war against our own fears has moved inside us all and become part of our minds.
We should have heeded Nietzsche’s warming: 'Beware that, when fighting monsters, you yourself do not become a monster... for when you gaze long into the abyss. The abyss gazes also into you.'"
