Singled Out: Death Koolaid's Emmeline

Death Koolaid

Death Koolaid singer Siren Sycho tells us about the song "Emmeline" from their brand new album "Death Koolaid Vol. 2". Here is the story:

Emmeline is named after the famous suffragette Emmeline Pankhurst an equal rights activist for women. The music was written on national women's day. Hence the name.

Before I began writing the lyrics I had just been on the Internet and had checked the comments under a post I had written. I had posted a video of a band and slated them and the attention I had gotten was unreal. So many people saying how could I say something like that, I shouldn't "diss" other musicians. My musical integrity was in jeopardy because I was speaking my mind and voicing my opinion! I was horrified that people didn't want to listen to an opinion. I believe if I hate something then I'm going to say it.
The whole song was inspired by this.

There are so many views and opinions on the Internet and in a way there are too many to the point where no one is listening to anyone because of it.
The lyrics are about how the masses carry about their mundane lives, living in a society that's full of people judging each other for being different. There's no one worth listening to and no one is willing to speak his or her mind. If anyone dares to say an opinion they will be punished for doing so.
I write most of the lyrics to our songs before I hear the music. I have a big book full of stuff I've written so I take it to practice, listen to a new tune and find some lyrics to fit to the music. This way of writing has always worked well for me. I find it easier to hear the sound of the music before I find which lyrics I think will fit with the mood of the song.

Emmeline has a very dark sound musically, the intro with its striking fast beats and punky guitar riffs gets you going before smashing you in the face with the chorus! After the second chorus it drops out into some slower chugging stuff with hard hitting vocals over the top. The break down after half way through gives off a chilly sound with almost ghostly sounding vocals, which is actually our drummer whispering disturbingly into the mic when we recorded. His vocals paired with my voice sounds really scary. Then as the break down builds up and up until the last chorus attacks you with its nasty hard booming sounds!! I love this song, it's one of my favorites from the new album.

Hearing is believing. Now that you know the story behind the song, listen for yourself and learn more about the album right here!
