Unleashing their debut beast “Conspiracy Theorist” in 2019 with much praise from metal media and even a nomination for metal album of the year from the GAMIQ’s (Gala alternatif de la musique indépendante du Québec), Northern Quebec death/thrash trio BACKSTABBER bring their track ‘My Disclosure’ to life in a new music video.
The video tells the story of the kidnapping of a young girl who is turned into a guinea pig by Aliens or Deep State (you’ll have to watch the video to find out). The track digs into the feelings of gaining back consciousness, the depression, and dizziness one can feel when realizing they can’t even trust their own memory. Then they recollect the events piece by piece to only realize that the knowledge of the truth may not be the best outcome.
The band adds: “When we wrote the lyrics for this song we knew from the start that there was a good story plot and material to make a good video clip, so we kept the storyline in mind as we created the track. The plot twist is kept vague throughout the song so that we had room for the video production as we focussed a lot on the main character, which is the kidnapped girl, we wanted to dig into her emotions as she experienced horrific events. The filming part was quite a challenge as we had to shoot in many different locations ranging sometimes a hundred kilometres apart. ‘My Disclosure’ takes a specific approach to the disclosure movement as it focuses more on the victims of third kind encounters than the disclosure itself. It’s an in-depth view of the hell these people go through as they try to figure what happened to them. It’s also a reminder that knowledge can be a burden to bear and that some things are meant to be kept hidden.”
BACKSTABBER‘s debut album “Conspiracy Theorist” is a fierce 10 track full-length that encompasses themes about scandals, critiques of mainstream media and conspiracies such as hollow Earth. Remaining old school, there are no clean vocals or breakdowns here, just a solid and mature death/thrash metal album, with good flow and clear thought in the tracks and compositions.
Vocalist/guitarist Christian M. Thériault adds: “‘Conspiracy Theorist’ is an album that’s meant to open your mind about the way the world revolves around us as it offers a new perspective on many issues that we see in our lives.”
