“The story behind ‘Orphans‘ was inspired by the novel ‘We Have Always Lived in the Castle‘ by Shirley Jackson. It emphasizes the feeling of ‘not belonging’ and the social and physical isolation that comes as a result of that. Even though we’ve all felt like outcasts at some point in our lives, it’s important to remember that we’re never truly alone and that there’s always someone there for you. We’re all ‘orphans’, but we’re in this life together.”

We asked them to not be shy and be creative with their submissions, ‘cause there are many ways to be metal! We knew that people would be eager to participate because throughout the years of meet and greets, we have come to know just how dedicated our fans have become, and we were not disappointed in the least! You guys rule!”
