Parsonz Curse

ROYAL THUNDER

About This Song


What defines “heavy”? I believe it’s more than just overly distorted guitars or even screaming. It’s attitude. It’s persona. It’s the depth of the song and the music. Parsonz Curse, the first track on Royal Thunder’s 2009 album CVI is super heavy. They take a page right out of the gospel of Black Sabbath with a sludging riff and haunting vocals by their singer Miny Parsonz. This band blends so many styles: from 1970’s blues, stoner rock/metal and doom to psychedelic space-rock and old school heavy metal. It’s awesome to hear something so old yet so new.

Even NPR noticed them.

Visually, I wanted to make something bold as a tribute poster for this song. The song is slow and powerful: I began thinking about royal and royalty, derived from the name of the band. A lion came to mind as a creature that would compliment the attitude of this song. But that wasn’t enough. A Griffin—the mythical creature that’s half lion and half eagle—blends the mystic and darkness for this track.

LYRICS /

Dark streets, my enemies
In shadows looking to see
I know just where I am going
You stare, there’s smoke in your eyes
I get close, my blood is the price
You know just where this is going

Oh, mother, don’t you cry
This thing will pass us by
I’m strong, I’ll put up a fight
I know it’s hard on you
I’m gonna see it through
I swear on everything

I’m not gonna let it burn
I’m not gonna let you see
Fear is what you want
Coming over me

This curse is following me
I will break it, setting us free
I know just where we are going
Old bonds still holding
I’m ending this, I say
I know just where this is going

Oh, mother, don’t you cry
This thing will pass us by
We’re strong, we’ll put up a fight
And I know I’m hard on you
I’m gonna see you through
Let’s give it everything

I’m not gonna let it burn
I’m not gonna let you see
Fear is what you want
Coming over me

I’m not gonna let it burn
I’m not gonna let you see
Fear is what you want
Coming over me

Oh, you can run, you can hide, but I swear it
Just swear it
Oh, these walls will tear you down
