Covering many concepts like fantasy, anger, confusion and confidence in his releases this year like SCATTER BRAINED, CARNAGE, ABOUT THAT TIME and PREACHING TO THE CHOIR and others, there is another to place awareness on! A tough and sensitive subject to traverse, but StankNasty dives into it with ease, as it is subject of growing importance among men and people in general! TRAUMA, the title of the his lastest release, is a feeling and experience all too familiar where it may concern Mental Health Awareness. StankNasty brings to life a story of trauma, a suicide, to which all parties familiar suffer a great deal emotionally. Opening up to how it affected close friends, and the warning signs leading up to the event.
Many artists tip toe around the subject to feign relatability, but lyrically, StankNasty does not shy away from the bitter truth of the pains of mental health. “Why the hell would someone choose to have such an affliction, and this includes anyone whos copes with addiction. These are real fucking conditions, since I was 10 years old this is the shit that I’ve lived with.” Placing awareness on how common the consequences of unspoken mental issues, it may help others feel more inclined to reach out for help. As StankNasty puts it so well in his lyrics. “Don’t ever be ashamed to go out and get some help… it’s important that we care for our mental health.” The depth in the music composition, and the harmony of the chorus, dials up the passion and tonality of the subject.
