The poster of Bob Marley in the background of Fire from the Gods‘ music video for “The Voiceless” doesn’t appear by chance. Its role in the video, albeit as wallpaper, is tightly connected to their message.
“The Voiceless” is referring to the callousness of society. This generation is exposed to so many shocking and graphic events. No one seems to bat an eye. There is no compassion or care for one’s fellow man. Violence towards each other is a normal occurrence factored into our lives these days. Speaking up about it is nothing new, but it needs to be said. Yes, the world will keep spinning, and life does go on, but we need to slow down and smell the fucking roses once in awhile. – AJ Channer (vocals)
The message comes through not only in the Fire from the Gods‘ performance, but in the lyrics painted across the screen. It is an effective use of the medium to make a solid point, and it came to life with the help of Korn‘s Jonathan Davis, who produced the video.
“The Voiceless” is from the band’s forthcoming album, Narrative Retold, which will be released on May 19 via Rise Records. Pre-order it here!
