OHHMS’ crushingly heavy music has recently garnered a lot of attention. The band just issued their new studio album ‘The Fool‘ a mere four days ago. In fact, we were streaming it here a day or two before its actual release.
Now the guys in OHHMS are debuting their official video for the track “The World” from the Holy Roar Records release. The band commented on the song itself, saying:
“Lyrically ‘The World’ is a character study of a friend of mine who was so overcome by conspiracy theories that he couldn’t function in the world any longer. He began to lose his mind and was deemed by a shrink to be unfit to work because he was delusional. It started small, with a few YouTube videos about NASA and Chem-Trails but within six months he was telling me how the Earth was flat and that I was a part of the sheeple movement because I wasn’t willing to do research myself into his claims.
“I don’t judge him, people that are heavily into organised religion seem just as bizarre to me, but what I found fascinating was the way in which all his friends and family turned their back on him, he would have been better off telling them he had become a full-time smack head. At least they would have had a point of reference to relate to him with. As it stands he is all alone in the world now and I don’t see him as much but when I do, it’s never boring, I’ll tell you that.”
