Local Hardcore Act Releases New Music Video

Posted By on Tue, May 3, 2016 at 3:43 PM

In October 2011, the activist hacker group Anonymous released the names of 1589 users of Lolita City, an underground pedophile community. In an interview about the effort to expose the bastards, a hacker named “Arson” stated that the mission was only to take down illegal materials. He said the operation wasn't triggered by any particular event. "We vowed to fight for the defenseless, there is none more defenseless than innocent children being exploited," he said in the interview.

Inspired by that event and the interview with "Arson," the local hardcore band Stark's Pond wrote the tune "Under Electric Skies." Now, the group has just released a lyric video for the song, which features parched vocals and heavy drums but ultimately comes off as a ballad (at least by hardcore standards).

"This song is dedicated to those who defended the defenseless," explains singer Paul Kahan. "It's a subject matter that hits super close to home for me. I've seen the damage its done both up close and from afar. I think it's something we should all band together to fight against. I love that Anonymous did that."
