Motionless in White's Chris Motionless Picks His Top Five Most Pissed-Off Records
Motionless in White have just released their controversial new video for the track "Immaculate Misconception" (you can view it here), which sees the band graphically venting their frustrations at certain aspects of the Christian community. Clearly knowing a thing or two about artistic expressions of anger, frontman Chris Motionless has made us this list of his Top Five most pissed-off records. Here's what he came up with.
Pantera - Vulgar Display pf Power
"When I first heard this record and the song 'Fucking Hostile' I thought I got hit by a fucking train; so fast, so heavy and it lives up to its title perfectly. Not many bands make me want to mosh and stomp around my room like an asshole, but Pantera hits the nerve for me. ohhhhhh fucking hostileeeee!"
Metallica - ...And Justice for All
"Master of Puppets may be my favorite Metallica record overall, but that doesn't disregard the fact that ...And Justice for All is heavier than any other Metallica record made to date. This is the first album they made after the death of Cliff Burton and I feel like the anger and hatred in each song thrived off of how they were dealing with the loss. Honesty and sincerity of emotion through music makes a huge difference and if you can tell me one record out today that could compare to the rawness of ...And Justice for All, I will gladly listen... then tell you to get it out of my fucking face."
Bleeding Through - Declaration
"It's so hard to pick which of Bleeding Through's records is the most pissed off because this band is, to me, the personification of 'Pissed.' But judging off of the feeling I get when I listen to any of their records, Declaration has me fired up more than the others. Bleeding Through is my most influential band in my life because of how deeply I relate to Brandan [Schiepatti's] lyrics. Declaration says it all."
Eminem - The Marshall Mathers LP
"A lot of time in interviews people ask me, 'What's one band you listen to that people wouldn't expect?' My answer is always Eminem. If any one man has as much hatred for humanity as I do—not that I couldn't name 100—it's Eminem. His lyrics are pure genius and he knows damn well how to put emotion into his recordings. The hair on my entire body stands up when he gets to that point of every song where he might as well just be screaming with how fucking pissed he is. I back him forever.'
Slipknot - Slipknot
"When Slipknot first came out, I didn't get it. I was heavily into bands like Metallica and Maiden at the time and hearing a band with nine members playing such insane music didn't make sense. I never disliked them, I just didn't understand at first. I gave them another shot with a pair of headphones and my walkman CD player and HOLY. FUCK! When I heard 'Surfacing' I knew this band was a game changer for life. I was a young teenager and I hated the world and everyone in it. Slipknot did too and I gladly made myself a Maggot for life."
