Malicious Inc. – Wintered Trees [Lyrics Video]
Taken from the EP: Red Flag | Sliptrick Records | 2020
Wintered Trees, from British metal outfit Malicious Inc., is track very close to the heart of lyricist and vocalist Kyle Mortiss. Here’s what he had to say;”The song was written with the adapted poetic parts of my suicide letter I wrote as a late teen. Initially I wrote the letter, with no intention of acting upon it nor showing anyone any of what was written. But after many years following that, many I care about have come to me and disclosed things that always took me back to that letter. “I’ve been there, maybe I can help” was the reoccurring thought from the compared thoughts and feelings. So I dug it out, read it through, and applied it to a song. All in all my relationship with depression and the idea of death is an obscure one. Chemical imbalances, with best friends and family members who have successfully, and unsuccessfully attempted, and I’ve just been kinda sat on the outside looking in at others fall apart always saying “I will never do that.” I’ve had weeks, sometimes months, of never leaving bed because I’m in such a hole, but that’s the worst of it. This track is about looking beyond the want of death, beyond all the darkness, and the thick suffocating sludge of it, and seeing the beauty of simplicity. Trees, sun and moon glow, the totem animals I am personally called to. Even the dark can be a beautiful place if you look for the right things.
