Amsterdam based metal band The Charm The Fury have released the new lyric video for their song ‘Weaponized‘. The song comes off of their recently released album, ‘The Sick, Dumb & Happy’. We reviewed the album in our ‘Straight To The Point’ feature here.
The band commented: “Love is one of those things songwriters and global media conglomerates just can’t get enough of. You can’t listen to the radio without being bombarded with sappy love songs. You can’t pick up a magazine or watch TV without being barraged with advertisements promising you to become more attractive, better looking, smelling better than anyone else. In short: something the opposite sex simply can’t resist.
What’s often overlooked is that ‘love’ in the modern age has become an industry, designed in boardrooms, by people looking to push a product or image on you. A tool designed to keep consumers in check. And those that do not fit the norm end up feeling left out and misplaced. Victims of an industry.”
The Charm The Fury have matured since their debut. With several of Europe’s biggest festivals under their belt, they have transformed their sound into a startling slab of ultra-modern but utterly distinctive metal that shrewdly and honestly redefines what The Charm The Fury is all about. Driven by a collective distaste for the state of the world in the 21st century, the band recorded an angry album underpinned by ferocious intelligence and a heartfelt desire to wake people out of their digital stupors.
With more details about the band’s new album, ‘The Sick, Dumb & Happy’, to come, the critical moment has arrived: The Charm The Fury are armed, ready and hungry for the next big push. When it explodes in 2017, the smart money is on these die-hard noisemakers claiming their rightful place among the new metal elite. They have the songs, the determination and the charisma to make it happen.
