“Suicidal God”, the new, conceptual and aggressive single by Brazilian Melodic Death/Thrash Metal band SOPHIE’S THREAT was released October 23rd.
Along with Tiago Carteano (drums) and Ricardo Oliveira (guitar), the band now counts on new members Malu Sales (vocals), Marcao (guitar) and Paulo R. “Satan” (bass).
Produced, mixed and mastered by Michel Villares (M&H Studio), “Suicidal God” brings a psychotic, violent and frightening theme of how society creates its own monsters, and they always come back to seek punishment. To have an even more frightening and realistic atmosphere, the story of the schizophrenic psychopath, and also American serial killer, Joseph Kallinger, who murdered three people – including one of his children – and tortured four other families, was used.
“In the beginning and the end of the song we used excerpts from a real interview given by the criminal, and in this interview he, a schizophrenic man, says that voices in his head told him to kill three million other people, his family, and then kill himself to become a god. That’s why we gave the title “Suicidal God” to the single”, commented Tiago Caertano (drummer).
“It was a big challenge to join the band because I am a very shy person, although I really like to have a band, and also because it was my first experience using a more aggressive and guttural vocal. I have sung in a more raspy way in other Punk Rock bands, but during the pandemic I studied the guttural technique and developed my more aggressive vocal in Metal, a style I really like, but I never intended to have a band before Sophie’s Threat (laughs). “Suicidal God” was like a test for me, I even wrote these strong lyrics together with Tiago and the producer Michel. I recorded the vocals in three different tones to have different nuances and layers to sound even more brutal in the final mix. I was very nervous, but everything went well, and we really like the result”, said Malu Sales (vocals).
The band is current recording a brand-new music video for “Suicidal God” and already has a third unreleased single recorded to be released very soon. Their future plan will release an EP with five new tracks and continue to spread the word of chaos even more!
