Canadian metallers Malacoda have revealed their new lyric video for their track “Wrapped In Laments”!
Vocalist Lucas Di Mascio explains the track:
“The song was inspired by the “Lying Figure” monsters from the Silent Hill 2 video game. They are female creatures that are trapped in a straight jacket of their own skin. They have holes in their chest where their hearts should be and they spew acid if the main character gets too close. They are beautifully haunting and evoke pity and disgust.
They represent how the main character’s wife felt while dying of melanoma, she felt she was a monster- too hideous to love and trapped in her own skin. I always took the acid-spewing from the chest as symbolic to how she was very verbally abusive to the main character in her final days and said things that while hurtful, came from the heart.
The chorus brings up the words “lie about” as a common phrase. And it’s both referencing how the main character would lie to her about his infidelity. But also how she felt all she could do was physically lie in a bed and waste away.”
