Pop Evil have released a video for the lead single, “Trenches” off their album “Onyx,” and it could not have made more of a statement. The video follows a woman who is struggling with both domestic violence and a nasty drug habit thanks to her abusive junkie boyfriend, and how she finds the strength within herself to take control of her life. We see the fight while listening to powerful snarled-out lyrics like:
“I’ve waited all my life to get out of the trenches
I’m ready to fight for what I believe you can steal from me
I won’t take this
Gonna fill these trenches and stand up
Wake up, I won’t give up
Cause here I come, here I come, yeah!”
By the end of the song, anyone with a heart will not only have chills, but even more respect for the talented men in Pop Evil. It takes a great band to gracefully tackle such sensitive issues, but Evil absolutely nails it, and I can’t say enough good things about both the video and the band.
