TRAUMA – the sound of revenge in the new lyric video for ‘Savage’

The longtime heavy metal masters TRAUMA from California, recently made their comeback with a new album entitled “As The World Dies” now available on Pure Steel Records.

With a fierce and solemn hymn to self revenge, the band is now pleased to reveal the new unmissable lyric video for ‘Savage’!

Watch it now on YouTube:

Kris Gustofson (drums) says: “The new lyric video is just epic! The concept of the song is basically about a woman in major distress due to the horrid sex trade, and other womanizing operations that exist in many places on the planet, and she finally gets a break and takes out major revenge by going Savage. We hope Metal fans will like this.”

The lyric video has been created by the Italian videomaker Marco Testa and it’s a strong visual portrayal of the still current and tragical theme of the exploitation of women’s bodies but this time with a final appropriate payback.

TRAUMA was born in California’s Bay Area in 1980, a crucial year for metal music. It was within that fertile musical climate that TRAUMA developed a sound evoking the electric energy in the air around them. Donny Hillier consumed a steady diet of Zeppelin and Sabbath and shared a love of Priest and Maiden with guitarist Mike Overton. And of course there was Trauma’s legendary early bassist, Cliff Burton.

This is the band responsible for the much sought after classic ‘80s album, Scratch and Scream, featuring killer cuts like “The Day All Hell Broke Loose” and “Lay Low.” Three decades passed before the reconfigured band reemerged in support of a re-mastered edition of their debut and delivered its 2015 follow-up, Rapture and Wrath.

Soaring melodies and fierce riffs collide in songs that are equal parts sharp, fierce, grandiose, and theatrical. Since their formation, they’ve assembled the strongest elements of seemingly disparate strains of metal, with passion and proficiency.
