Sugar-sweet pop lyrics meet the metal musical genre in ‘Risen from Shadows’, a new band formed to front ‘The Dark Side of Sugar’ Musical Project, launched on World Diabetes Day, November 14th to draw attention to the adverse health effects of hidden sugar in food. The project is in collaboration with Action on Sugar and all proceeds will be donated to the fight against diabetes.
The ‘Dark Side of Sugar’ band will give iconic sugary-sweet pop songs a metal makeover. “Is that too extreme?” asks Marcel Neumann, founder of Risen from Shadows. “No. It is not. Because sugar has an absolutely dangerous, dark side. Poor diet is a major contributor to serious and potentially fatal diseases such as type 2 diabetes. This is what we want to make clear with our music.” The new music video from ‘Risen from Shadows’ illustrates these dangers in a frightening way. Features not only include the typical metal pentagrams, snakes and skulls are associated with the metal music genre, but also transforms sugar-rich food into creepy artefacts.
