For hundreds of years African Americans have been oppressed and we have been seeing so much police brutality recently it honestly angers me. When the George Floyd and Breonna Taylor killings happened I wanted so badly to be apart of the BLM Movement but my father was afraid that I would get beat, killed or put in jail. As an African American teenager I feel it is my responsibility to explain to society how I feel about my people being killed by some of the people who are supposed to protect us. I am in the next generation of leaders so I have to make it my duty to fight for our TRUE freedom and equality. In my song Levels make it clear that although I was not able to protest I will not let go of the unjust wrongdoings of African Americans and no matter what I will fight and my people will fight through the madness until we finally become truly free and equal.

Everything You Need

This song is about not caring what people think and knowing that you have the strength to come back from it because you know you have what it takes to do that when you have confidence in yourself.

Isaiah Hightower

This piece I have composed combines Rustic Black Metal as well as more traditional Germanic acoustic sounds in an effort to truly exonify my personal existential journey whereas I am in a world of which I do not belong. As a culturally and biologically Northern European born in a foreign land, I have long relied upon my own mechanizations to stay afloat so to speak, always struggling to wriggle against the confines that attempt to shut me out. Currently I sit within an industrialized urban landscape, witnessing vicariously the destruction of my spiritual ethnic hearth due to corporate enterprise and human lust birthed from unnatural means of which soon will be the destruction of us all, as is all that opposes the natural way of things. In conclusion, I wrote this song in purest expression of thought and emotional stigma because I am HUMAN.
