The Restitution

Today, HM is proud to premiere the new lyric video from The Restitution for “Life-Giver.” The Restitution is a Los Angeles-based post-hardcore band, self-described as “ambitious.” They have specifically stated their interest in staying intentionally diverse, drawing on influences that range from traditional metal to synth-wave film scores.

The song is written from the perspective of The Monster from Mary Shelley’s classic, Frankenstein. Vocalist Michael Wright walks us through the direction of the song.

His story is one of complete abandonment and violent rejection at every turn, which illustrates how our pain can drive us to cause harm, both great and small, to those around us, and how our empathy is required for even the most monstrous of us.

If you’re interested in following the band, you can do so over on YouTube.
