NORWEGIAN BLACK METAL OUTFIT MINNERIKET RELEASES VIDEO IN SUPPORT OF THE PREVENTION OF SUICIDE AND SELF-HARM AMONGST YOUTH
“WE NEED TO TALK ABOUT THE DARKNESS….”
“We Need to Talk About the Darkness…” has been the constant thorny theme throughout Minneriket’s “Anima Sola” album. It’s an unpleasant topic: painful, awkward, distressing, uncomfortable… and largely unspoken of. Silent tragedy kept behind locked doors, words left unsaid, memories suppressed.
With “Time for Suicide”, fittingly the final song on the album and the last video drawn from it, the topic is not only dragged violently into the light, but forced to the forefront as the viewer’s eyes are involuntarily pinned open to watch the representation of a jagged, festering wound in video format. Laying open the mind’s fatal infection is the only way to release the purulence and “Time for Suicide” does just that.
With the release of this video, Akslen guarantees that 100% of the proceeds from the Minneriket webstore from now through the end of January will be donated to non-religious and non-political organizations working with the prevention of suicide and self-harm among youths. All prices have been dropped to an all-time low, but for those who may wish to add additional support for the movement there is the option to pay more when you place your order.
