The fear of human rights violation has waved throughout the world this year and there are far more groups than various mutations of ‘terrorists’ that seek to intensify this feeling as more and more people sense the loss of freedom and safety. To coincide with today’s International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women, Budapest melodic hardcore band SATELLES have teamed up with IDIOTEQ to join our voices to put an end to violence against women and express their thoughts via their new single and lyric video ‘7th Circle (The Devil Behind The Mask)’, featuring gust vocals of Máté Karsay from dark, chaotic hardcore band WASTED STRUGGLE. The track’s message stands out for everyone who have to speak out about ending domestic violence on all possible levels.
All donations from Bandcamp sales of this single will be granted for charities and organizations preventing violence against women and domestic violence.
The band commented on the track:
In the December of 2015, when we recorded our first full-length album, we also recorded a song that we wanted to release separately from the record, due to the focused message and the fragile atmosphere of it. The song entitled ‘7th Circle (The Devil Behind The Mask)‘ is our darkest track yet, and it was a challenge for us to finalize and record it with our natural uptight feelings about domestic violence against women. Even if we recorded all the songs 100% alive and simultaneously, in this track we didn’t even use any metronome-signs to let it be as harsh and honest as we can express ourselves.
We felt the need to speak out for those who suffer violence on a daily basis, and we are responsible for them – every life matters, we can’t let silence and fear reign through years. The upsetting anger we feel also appears in the lines of Máté Karsay (the singer and bass player of WASTED STRUGGLE) as well – his guest appearance defines the song itself, and we hope that on this day (International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women) everyone can take a moment to think about those who live their lives in constant oppression and pain.
SATELLES released their debut LP “The Wolf You Feed” in February this year. GO HERE to stream the full record now!
