Italian alt metallers Hellfox unveil new single & music video for "Our Lady Of Sorrows"
Here the words from the Singer Greta Antico:
“The lyrics of 'Our Lady Of Sorrows' represent a prayer raised to the sky, it is the question made by someone who does not find his place in the world and with the greatest despair has the intention to awaken a divinity, good or malevolent, from Her sleep. The desperate one calls her by different names to make sure he/she is not mistaken and in the end the deity responds and agrees to take the one who called her under her protection.
Ours is a warrior goddess, barren mother of children who come to her in despair and who finally answers by asking for devotion and sacrifice in return, it is an exchange, a call to be part of a larger family, certainly very far from the "Christian Lady Of Sorrows" but somehow close to the figure of "Mother".
This representation can also be interpreted as a voice, something that comes from the heart, an emotion that wakes up inside us and that pushes us to become something else, that asks us to move, that gives us the strength that we feel when it seems that nothing can save us, and then instead, gathered all our strength, allows us to succeed.”
The video represents the protagonist in search of an answer, she hears music and tries to follow it, she needs to find a solution to her problems and she looks for it through 'Our Lady Of Sorrows'.
Instead she finds in her path the four of us, who in one way or another, guide her towards the "Cathedral" where we are playing. Of course, by the time she gets there, it will be too late. She will be left with a book though, and... who knows, it could be the solution to all her problems or her worst damnation…
“The Call”, New album due on January 21st is available for the pre-order at the following link: https://www.musicforthemassesdistro.com/product/hellfox-the-call/

Hellfox trademark is represented by the dualism between Greta and Priscilla’s voices, which intertwine while telling the tales of the album. But let the band members’ words speak for their own:
“Hellfox is an alternative metal (alt-metal) leaning towards melodic death metal. In spite of four rather different musical backgrounds, we’re on the same page on the inspiration we draw from Amorphis, In Flames & Dark Tranquillity in the process of song writing, while we’ve chosen to detach from the symphonic context, widely regarded as feminine, inserting acid, distorted synths in order to create a modern mood we felt our own and committed more adherently to the pop vibe of Greta’s melodic voice.
The dualism existing within Hellfox is not to be meant as a conflicting one, it’s rather the result of different voices interacting inside the human soul, different faces if we want to put it down this way. Faces mingling and generating the person in itself, in its entirety, who create and live in harmony and balance although seemingly clashing one another.
We do not use masks to conform to the mass, while we don’t even want to distinguish ourselves at any cost, in a society where normality is a mere surface. The abyss, on the other hand, is made of countless personality facets, both for the collective and the single human being. Our message is accessible to all, everyone can recognize it in her or himself: that small, tiny voice in your head which attracts or repulses you…’cause nothing is normal for us, nothing is different.”
Hellfox was born from the 4 members’ different musical tastes and influences. We're not trying to fit into a genre, our music expresses the need to convey what we have behind the mask everyone wears in every day life, independently of what we are. Instrumental parts are made of acid and distorted sounds with great atmospheres, where two voices fights with each other’s. The band formed during 2019 winter, thanks to the Greta and Priscilla rediscovered friendship. In February 2019 they find Gloria, and after a long and exhausting research, finally they find Federica to properly complete the band.
