Hillsborough Metal Band Release ‘Powerful’ Music Video
HILLSBOROUGH, NJ – Hillsborough heavy metal band Nuse released a new “powerful” single and music video on Thursday for their single “Swept Away,” which addresses inner struggles with depression and suicide. (Watch the clip below)
The video features actor Ronnie Marmo (Criminal Minds, General Hospital and West of Brooklyn) and was filmed by 624 Productions LLC of Hillsborough.
In a shortlist, Jon Zazula, founder of Megaforce Records (Metallica, Anthrax, Overkill, Testament), cited the video with one word, “Powerful!”
“The song is about a terminally ill person and on the outside it shows her family that she is strong and looks good… that everything will be fine,” said singer / guitarist Mike LaMastro. “But inside there is pain, suffering. There is turmoil. Moral questioning. The person obviously struggles and finally the disease wins in the end.”
The song has a personal connection to LaMastro, who also coaches football at Hillsborough, who saw someone go through that scenario.
LaMastro said there is an incredibly high rate of suicide in terminally ill patients, with most patients having a fleeting desire to die within the first year of diagnosis.
“It’s very personal to me. I hope the video shows people that there is hope for people taking this journey, to stay strong, there are resources there,” he said. LaMastro said.
Hillsborough resident Tom Baldinger, owner of 624 Productions, was the video writer and director.
“It was my first music video and I enjoyed it. It was a lot of fun. I personally am a huge fan of 80s hard rock. But I have never loved heavy metal as much as I enjoyed them. lyrics to the music when they hired us. ”said Baldinger.
The lyrics to “Swept Away” tell a deep story. As a result, a public service announcement from the group and Marmo is included at the end, urging anyone in pain to seek help. If you are planning to kill yourself, call 800-273-8255 or text HOME at 741741.
