Singled Out: Flymore
Flymore feel nu metal lyrics are not an antagonistic struggle with the outer world, as it is in metal music in general but, rather are about an internal conflict. The most difficult thing is to resolve the conflict within oneself.
Animals live their life with instincts to preserve a whelp; a seal will grind sagebrush in -58 degrees Fahrenheit day after day for it to be able to find nutrition. And a seal cannot move to the south and send its little ones to kindergarten and create something inspiring. But a seal is not suffering from this and does not dream to make its world better. The Human being can choose to change his life, but this power could turn to be a punishment when we cannot choose between our own contradictions.
Our songs, as a rule, reflect our own sufferings and it's quite a serious task to decide then what symbols to use in a supporting music video.
No doubt, an unrequited love is the most difficult of all internal conflicts. That is why the songs hero suffers from Love. The two are like Quasimodo and Esmeralda. He is ugly and she does not love him but she did not reject him forthright, causing him to live in pain. He hunts for his dream by any means necessary; like a hunter for his victim. But that living love was the only reason of all his existence, without it the maniac can't be free, he is just bound by his perplexity.
Please check out the video for "Nothing Personal" to see this story acted out. We survived some very intense conditions to make it but, it was a two days fun and we are happy with the result.
If you're still curious you can see this story as a part of our documentary "Flymore: Live in Minsk" on our YouTube channel. See you there!
