Metal Monday -Hypocrisy- Chemical Whore

It feels kinda cool that I called it earlier this year. Front man of both Pain and Hypocrisy that has been creating music for the past few years with the frontman of Ramstein, departed earlier this year and shortly after we got a new Pain song. While Pain is a little more techno metal, Hypocrisy is all out Death Metal. Hypocrisy have had albums dealing with subjects ranging from Alien abductions, governmental conspirisies, religion and war. And with the latest instalment (Chemicla Whore is but three days old on youtube) seems like they are looking at the government again. I love the song, it feels a lot less thrash and speed metally as the previous two albums and gives me some Fourth Dimention era vibes. Even a little Roswell 47 and Eraser. I just love the way they tune their guitars always sounds like they play in reverse. Its the one thing that got me hooked so many years ago. That and the alien themes…

Vocals are what you could expect with Death Metal, gutteral, but not the cringy kind of throught atrophy some other bands go for. Trigger warning, there might be a lot of “whore” in this song, but it is not to the degredation of the female portrayed in the music vid. Being a whore for something just means you’d be willing to do unthinkable things for the thing you are addicted too, at least that is how I understand the term. What Hypocrisy is possibly implying is that maybe the Higher ups are keeping us medicated just to control us, the thinking that comes to mind is a lot along the lines of what we are currently seeing with anti- and pro vaccine people posting things everywhere on social media. I do not pay too much mind to it all, I am just here for the music. 

Enjoy.

Lyrics:

Swallow your freedom
Swallow your smile
Swallow your sanity that crawls and itching inside

We got the cure
We got your fate
We got everything you want so you don’t have to think again

From botanicals to synthetic drugs, pharmaceutical industry is born
It is not to cure
It’s about to control
Your money, your health
They want to own it all

You’re the chemical whore
They make you beg on your knees for more
A chemical whore
Steals your life, steals your mind, whatever is left of your soul

We’ll make you addicted
Our little bitch
We love your money much more than your pity health
With our expensive pills
We control your fear, we disconnect you and tell you what to feel

From botanicals to synthetic drugs, pharmaceutical industry is born
It is not to cure
It’s to control
Your money, your health
They want to own it all

You’re the chemical whore
They make you beg on your knees for more
A chemical whore
Steals your life, steals your mind, whatever is left of your soul

Tranquillized mind
To make sure you won’t make trouble or fight
Remote controlled drugs
You can’t tell right from wrong or lies

You’re the chemical whore
They make you beg on your knees for more
A chemical whore
Steals your life, steals your mind, whatever is left of your soul
