Vicious metal sextet Designed After Nothing presents the very sinister and dire “John Dies In The End”. A dismal product, which contains multiple shifts in musical style and a clear concept executed with a singular vision in mind.
Embracing their strengths and using their instrumental prowess, the members crafted this single as a product that exhibits influences from various different genres. Which manages to paint a hellish landscape that can only be associated with the overall atmosphere provided by the group’s debut EP (“In Pieces”) as well.
Explaining the intentions for creating a product of this sort, Designed After Nothing collectively adds:
“This song, its respective video, and “In Pieces” as a whole, is something that is not meant to be taken at face value. It can be open to many different interpretations; whether it be internal struggles with yourself, to external problems one is facing.
While many of the songs, including this one, can be interpreted as a struggle one has with a current (or past) relationship with someone. The deeper meaning that can be interpreted behind many of these songs is one’s struggle with mental illness, self-esteem, and overall well-being.”
