Stream “Rape Me” by Florida extreme metallers Prison below, and experience their no-holds-barred, unadulterated barrage of truth that will make your hairs stand on end with each and every line.
According to a band press release, an unnamed band member stated:
“Because of the severity of the subject matter and how personally intimate the details of the track are, I’ve asked that the members not be named, including myself.”
“There may be a time and place for that down the road, but right now, what matters is the anti-rape message, not who wrote it. It is still difficult for me to talk about, although funneling my trauma into a creative outlet is helping me recover – slowly but surely. I hope to one day be able to discuss this publicly without having to relive the pain. I’ve had to listen to the song on repeat to help desensitize myself before the release. Writing these words helped me feel empowered and masculine for the first time since it happened. I can only pray it helps others the way it has helped me. I can’t justify living through what I’ve lived through in vain. I have to use it as fuel.”
