Right from the very first note, ‘Casual Violence’, from Spider Rockets is infused with rage and power. Incredible vocals supplied by frontwoman Helena Cos rain down upon the many layers of instrumentals.
Starting out in New Jersey, Spider Rockets have gone from strength to strength, making their way up to the top rated venues and music festivals such as the Vans Warped Tour, Popcomm, and touring with Puddle of Mudd, Saliva, Framing Hanley, Trapt, Saving Abel, and Tantric, among others.
Their style is confrontational, and very much “in your face”, evoking the likes of Black Sabbath, AC/DC, and Led Zeppelin. ‘Casual Violence’ is the follow up single to ‘Going Down’, and ‘Rip Your Heart Out’, both of which have each amassed almost 300,000 views on YouTube alone.
The music video for ‘Casual Violence’ sees the band wearing sinister masks that perhaps hide their true feelings and emotions. Helena Cos sings of never looking inside “where your darkness lies”, and in the video the band members wear masks, suggesting they are hiding their true feelings and emotions. With soaring guitar rhythms and ferocious drums, the band are able to meet Helena’s vocals beat for beat, as they perform in what appears to be an abandoned warehouse.
