Amsterdam based metal band THE CHARM THE FURY have released the new lyric video for their song“Weaponized”. The song comes off of their recently released sophomore album, The Sick, Dumb & Happy.
The band commented: “Love is one of those things songwriters and global media conglomerates just can’t get enough of. You can’t listen to the radio without being bombarded with sappy love songs. You can’t pick up a magazine or watch TV without being barraged with advertisements promising you to become more attractive, better looking, smelling better than anyone else. In short: something the opposite sex simply can’t resist.
What’s often overlooked is that ‘love’ in the modern age has become an industry, designed in boardrooms, by people looking to push a product or image on you. A tool designed to keep consumers in check. And those that do not fit the norm end up feeling left out and misplaced. Victims of an industry.”

THE CHARM THE FURY released their new music video for “Blood And Salt” off their sophomore album, The Sick, Dumb & Happy. Watch it here!
THE CHARM THE FURY have matured since their debut. With several of Europe’s biggest festivals under their belt, they have transformed their sound into a startling slab of ultra-modern but utterly distinctive metal that shrewdly and honestly redefines what THE CHARM THE FURY is all about. Driven by a collective distaste for the state of the world in the 21st century, the band recorded an angry album underpinned by ferocious intelligence and a heartfelt desire to wake people out of their digital stupors.
With the band’s new album, The Sick, Dumb & Happy, out, the critical moment is now: THE CHARM THE FURY are armed, ready and hungry for the next big push. They have the songs, the determination and the charisma to make it happen.
The band: Caroline Westendorp – Vocals Mathijs Tieken – Drums Rolf Perdok – Guitars Martijn Slegtenhorst – Guitars Lucas Arnoldussen – Bass
