Watch Crippled Black Phoenix’s New Video ‘Scared and Alone’

One day before embarking on their European tour for which you will find a full list of dates below, CRIPPLED BLACK PHOENIX are now premiering their first video in support of their freshly unleashed full-length ‘Bronze‘ (out since November 4th).

The clip for the track “Scared and Alone” has been created by renowned Romanian artist Costin Chioreanu. The animation revolves around the illness of depression, which is represented in song and visuals by the metaphorical “black dog” – a slang term expressing this severe and dangerous medical condition.

Mastermind Justin Greaves comments on the song and video of “Scared and Alone”:

“Costin Chioreanu has created an amazing clip. His animation fits so very well that this can only come from someone, who truly understands the feeling behind this song. It is not an easy thing to connect with so I have nothing but respect and praise for Costin. ‘Scared and Alone’ speaks volumes about being cut off from the outside world and other people when the “Black Dog” bites. Depression, anxiety and mental health are becoming bigger issues and when someone speaks up, it opens a door for other people to get things off their mind. Belinda wrote the lyrics as well as doing the vocals for ‘Scared and Alone’ and she did not need to be given any direction. As always, she took the title and the music and shaped the most real and heartfelt words into a very poetic form. I am deeply satisfied with the way everything turned out, both sonically and visually.”

Artist Costin Chioreanu tells his side of the story:

“No human being can ever get completely free of depression, simply because we can never be completely happy. The root of this sick behaviour pattern is our need to always increase the intensity of our life’s pleasures – regardless of the issue. We need more and more or we fall into a hole. In this state, we pretty much resemble drug addicts. This greed is amplified by society, which imposes desires on us and once our minds have been trained to function in accordance with such parameters, it becomes increasingly difficult to get back to something simple that we have either forgotten or never known to exist. The story of ‘Scared and Alone’ gives the complete picture of this gaping hole, the inner view of an entire life from the perspective of a person with no escape.”
