Description

사실 우리가 원조였다! 피해의식, ‘벚꽃엔딩 The Original’ 발매
피해의식이 새 디지털 싱글 ‘벚꽃엔딩 The Original(이하 벚꽃엔딩)’을 발표한다. ‘벚꽃엔딩’은 8, 90년대 메탈 밴드의 향수가 물씬 느껴지는 록 발라드 넘버로, 어찌 보면 매우 뻔뻔해 보일 수도 있지만, 곡을 작사 작곡한 크로커다일에 의하면 ‘벚꽃엔딩’은 2004년 완성되어, 매년 봄 음원 차트를 점령하는 ‘그 곡’과는 관계가 없다고 한다. 다만 같은 제목으로 나오는 것이 ‘그 곡’의 후광에 기대어 홍보를 하려는 얄팍한 상술로 보일 수 있다는 소속사 사장의 걱정에 의해 ‘The Original’이라는 사족을 달고서야 세상 빛을 볼 수 있게 되었다.

잔잔한 피아노 선율을 꿰뚫고 지나가는 강렬한 기타사운드와 그 위에 펼쳐진 담담하면서도 애절한 보컬은 꽃이 완연한 봄날에 겪은 실연에 대한 처연한 감정을 더욱 돋보이게 하며, 뭇 남성들의 노래방 애창곡이 될 준비를 모두 마쳤다.

이번 싱글은 네이버 뮤지션리그와 KT&G 상상마당의 창작지원 프로그램인 Imagine Your Music에 선정되어 상상마당 춘천 라이브 스튜디오에서 녹음되었으며, 네이버 뮤지션리그를 통해 지난 3월 선 공개되어 차트 1위에 오르는 등 좋은 반응을 얻은 바 있다. 또한, 5월 정식 발매와 함께 처음 공개되는 뮤직비디오에서는 이 곡의 작사 작곡과 프로듀싱, 뮤직비디오 편집까지 모두 도맡아 한 크로커다일이 주연으로 분하여 혼신의 물벼락 연기를 선보이는 모습을 감상할 수 있다.

러브락

South Korean glam metal band Victim Mentality formed in 2009 in Seoul. The group was founded by vocalist Krocodile and guitarist Kyungho Sohn, who first bonded years earlier by jamming on Iron Maiden and Judas Priest covers. A veteran of South Korea’s metal scene, Sohn previously played in the melodic death metal band The Crescents and has been a member of symphonic black metal act Dark Mirror ov Tragedy since 2007. Wanting to showcase their love of ‘80s glam metal, Sohn and Krocodile teamed up to work on music that paid homage to the subgenre’s heyday. Taking their time, they crafted the songs for their first EP, “Magic Finger,” in 2009 and 2010 and recorded them as a duo in 2012 and 2013. In February 2013, Krocodile and Sohn invited bassist Scorpion to join Victim Mentality. In July 2013, “Magic Finger” was released. The offering boasts the powerful, catchy cuts “Don’t Spit on Me” and “I’m Not Your Friend” along with the title track, a power ballad dealing with the anguish caused by impotence. The EP ends with Korean versions of “Don’t Spit on Me” and “I’m Not Your Friend.” July 2013 also saw the band finally making their live debut. Not having a drummer, they relied on a drum machine for their initial gigs until drummer Tarantula was brought on board in February 2014. Deciding their style should match their sound, for concerts Victim Mentality sport plenty of leopard print, lip gloss, and eyeliner. And to keep audiences further entertained, flamboyant frontman Krocodile often brandishes a bullwhip while delivering his impassioned wails. Quickly winning over fans and capturing the attention of the Korean music industry, in May 2014 – less than a year after their first live show – the group played at Seoul’s Green Plugged festival and later that summer appeared at the Incheon Pentaport Rock Festival, one of the country’s most famed summer outings. In spring 2015, Victim Mentality will release their debut full-length offering, “Heavy Metal Is Back.” The act will be embarking on their first American tour in March and will preview material from “Heavy Metal Is Back” at South by Southwest (SXSW).
