"The wait is finally over and the soundtrack to YOUR zombie apocalypse kicks off right HERE - WE ARE THE CRAZIES - LET'S GO!!" "THE CRAZIES" (The Zombie Song) is a rallying cry for ALL zombies from the zombie perspective!
"Artist & producer DieTrich Thrall is known among industrial-metal fans for his work in the band Marazene (also known as Marazene Machine), who scored a hit with their extreme cover of Motley Crüe's “Live Wire” in 2011. Since then, Thrall has formed a new supergroup dubbed Beauty In The Suffering, featuring an ever-expanding lineup that includes veterans from American Head Charge, Dope, Genitorturers, Skinlab, Razorblade Dolls and many more.
For their first outing as a new band, Thrall and team decided to adopt a horror motif, beginning with the track “The Crazies (The Zombie Song),” which is no doubt influenced by the horror classics of George A. Romero – not just the film of the same name, but his beloved Dead saga as well.
“The Crazies” is the first of three zombie-themed songs to be incorporated into a long-form music video conceived by Thrall (which is currently in production), and you'll be hearing more about [the] project soon." - Gregory Burkart (FEARnet.com)
“Visualizing the music for Beauty In The Suffering has been a primary goal of this project from day one.
For as long as I can remember I have always heard music in my head. Usually while I am in songwriting mode and I start scatting scratch vocals I will get a good sense of a lyrical theme and from there a story emerges. Sometimes the story is vast and communal and sometimes it’s just a feeling or a mood and much more personal.
From every aspect of this project ; music, lyrics, album artwork, and video, I wanted to try and create a multi-media experience that would shine a light from different angles on different core aspects of concepts that were running around in my head despite all of the financial roadblocks most independent bands face.
For my bands first videos it just so happens the first couple of songs took a zombie apocalypse turn. But whether the setting is that of a dystopian future or focuses on interpersonal pain from the present or demons from the past my goal has and will always be to enhance the musical experience through a cinematic approach.
Having so many creative, talented, and enthusiastic people involved made the entire experience one I will never forget piecing together and being a part of so a very big bunch of kudos to those involved who helped take this project to the next level.” - DieTrich Thrall
