Genre-bending Los Angeles, California metal band Fused By Defiance (a.k.a. FxD) has dropped a new video for their single “Cancel Culture.” With their powerful style of songcraft, and the deft ability for cutting lyrics and social commentary, the band both highlights the necessities and the dangers of the current kangaroo court system of the internet and social media apps. Check out the video here!
The band comments
Cancel culture is a powerful weapon that when used appropriately, has the power to take down disgusting human-beings in less than 140 characters; something most court systems can’t manage to do in 140 days. But like a vigilante with no moral code or restraint, it can easily tip toward the dark-side. This song talks about the inappropriate usage of cancel culture. Metaphorically, a virus in the system; that searches through a person’s past and finds the one thing that may be able to bring them down as a petty response or knee jerk reaction to a human occasion. What cancel culture in this instance fails to take into account is the fallibility of humanity. Within this cycle is a tale of growth through experience which in current times are posted for public review. We are all human and all make mistakes, however only in the fallacy of stagnation does cancel culture become its own demise.
Fused By Defiance, also known as FxD, is a five piece band from Los Angeles, California, formed in 2012.
