Conspiracy of Blackness release "Pain Therapy"
"Pain Therapy" is an introspective journey born from profound disappointment and a fierce desire to denounce the afflictions of the human soul and the world. Each song serves as a firsthand account or witness to a story, collectively shedding light on pressing issues. From the pains of loneliness and the anxieties of judgment to the frustrations of injustice and lack of understanding, the album weaves a dense tapestry of emotions that connect its tracks. Through honest depiction, we aim to awaken society to its indifference toward the most vulnerable, stirring souls and raising awareness of the countless challenges individuals face as they search for solace. Departing from its Heavy Metal and NWOBHM influences, "Pain Therapy" embraces a darker and more powerful sound characteristic of Nu Metal/Alternative Metal. It reflects our innermost thoughts with contrasting yet impactful emotions, a result of our personal growth and diverse musical inspirations, ranging from Korn, Lacuna Coil, In This Moment, and Evanescence to the likes of Depeche Mode, The Cure, and Tears For Fears. The album is a conceptually rich experience, offering a soundtrack to our lives. Like a meticulously crafted book, every aspect, including lyrics, artwork, and music, has been painstakingly developed, resulting in a microcosm of profound and discordant feelings. Each track tells its own unique story, with fallen and lost protagonists extending a supporting hand, reminding us all that we are not alone. These characters, flawed and broken, piece themselves together gradually, offering a glimpse of hope amidst the turmoil.
