Lena Scissorhands, the vocalist of Infected Rain, joins forces with German/Austrian modern metallers Oceans for their new single “Voices”. Listen to the track below.
“Voices” deals with schizophrenia, an often misunderstood and yet very serious condition. It’s taken from Oceans’ upcoming EP “We Are Nøt Okay”, dropping on April 30th. The EP contains four different songs dealing with all aspects of mental illness, each track featuring a special guest adding his very own style to the new output of Berlin/Vienna based post metal heroes Oceans.
Oceans’ vocalist and guitarist Timo Rotten states: “This song is fragile and violent. It displays self love and self hatred at the same time. We tried to capture a particular state of mind with “Voices”, it’s basically our own interpretation of paranoid schizophrenia. Oceans has always been about contrast, because most things in our world do have multiple sides to it, especially with mental health everything is multi-layered. Normally, I try to transport that with my use of growls and clean singing, but Lena’s vocals put the whole thing on a whole different level. The sheer amount of emotion in this track makes me shiver every time I listen to it.”
Lena Scissorhands adds: “Being part of the song “Voices” was an easy decision for me. I loved the lyrics and the music right away. The message is raw and very relevant to the current society we live in.“
