United Kingdom’s alt-metal group VEXED has released their debut album, which has been all of work that finally paid off for the group.
The Roman Show spoke to vocalist Megan Targett about the band’s new album Culling Culture, which was released May 21.
“We are nervous,” she said. “It has been a long time coming from being releasing two songs independently and to have Napalm Records picking us up and debuting our album. It is scary but exciting.”
The album features the single Misery.
Each song in the album covers the theme of mental health.
“Living with mental health each song is dedicated to a person we have gotten rid of,” she said. “Misery is what we are going through with what these people are causing us all that pain.”
LONG TIME COMING
The band knew each other and performed with other groups.
“We were all desperate and then with VEXED it was all systems go. It happened really fast. It clicked,” she said.
The album was written before the pandemic.
“It has aged better people can relate to it. Some of the songs are a couple of years old,” she said.
Targett also talks about her Christian faith and more.
