Larissa Stupar On New Venom Prison Album: “This One Is Going To Be A Lot More Personal For Me”

Venom Prison’s Larissa Stupar was recently interviewed by Metal Hammer and she offered some more insight into the band’s new album, which is expected to be released early next year. The effort will deal with a variety of subjects including depression, suffering, and the #MeToo movement.

Stupar said the following when asked what the album sounds like:

“Ash [Gray, guitar] and Ben [Thomas, guitar] do most of the writing and they realised what they liked and what they would have improved from last time. So we went from there and just tried to write. This album is definitely heavier than Animus and it’s more experimental and technical, too. There are some electronic bits and some melodic parts that people wouldn’t necessarily expect.”

She later added:

“I think we realised that people really like breakdowns, so we’ve tried to put a lot more of them in there! We’ve got heavier beatdowns and some faster grindcore elements. Just anything to make people start a circle-pit.”

As far as lyrical themes, she said:

“This one is going to be a lot more personal for me, because I’ve been suffering from depression for the last few years now and I’ve been going through some really hard times. I just wanted to write down and communicate those feelings. I read somewhere that if you express those thoughts it feels better as you stop carrying it. But I’ve also written songs about homophobia and transphobia. Basically, the whole record is about suffering, whether it is societal suffering or internal suffering. I wanted to express those feelings.”

She also had the following to say about the #MeToo movement and its influence on the album:

“One thing that rarely left my mind was the #MeToo movement, in music and especially in Hollywood. I don’t know if you remember the case of the girl who was assaulted behind a dumpster in 2016 by [U.S. athlete] Brock Turner, there’s a line that was said to the judge in his defence that was something like, ‘They’re ruining his life just because he had 20 minutes of action.’ It was so ridiculous. There’s a line in one of the songs that actually references unfair court hearings for rape survivors. We thought it was important for us to set out our stall in Animus and then push it a little bit further. I tried to incorporate more femininity into my lyrics, talk about the role of motherhood. It’s much more personal but it’s very politically minded as well. It’s pretty dark.”
