Seattle and Los Angeles-based heavy metal band RivetSkull have been making waves since the release of their re-imagined full-length album, Trail of Souls: Samsara, from this past July. Today (2nd), the group has teamed up with Metal Insider to premiere a lyric video for the song “Narcissus.” The unveiling of the clip ties in with the celebration of the band launching their new merch line, “Zero Hate,” with proceeds from sales going to a non-profit called Metal for Good. The organization uses the positive values of rock, metal, and other alternative subcultures to make a positive difference in communities. Trail of Souls: Samsara is a complete re-recording of the band’s self-published 2020 album. After self-recording and releasing their debut album during the global pandemic, RivetSkull revisited their songs with professional production that captures their unique sound.
The band comments on the merch line:
“We chose “Narcissus” as its lyrics decry hateful people, their leadership, speech, and violence. It shines the light on world leaders who convince others to do their bidding, regardless of cost. We like to make a difference and heavy metal has always been a refuge, RivetSkull is committed to working toward a world of #ZEROHATE. 100% of the profits from RivetSkull’s ZERO HATE merch line will be donated to Metal for Good to help support programs that change lives through the collective power and support of the heavy metal community.”
