XIV SACRED WORDS
In 2015, the need for dissident music in the US had never been greater, and XIV Sacred Words was more than willing to push the boundaries of "acceptable speech". Influenced by Extreme Metal in all it's forms, the band's sound is shaped by the aggressiveness inherent in the genre, and the hellscape that is post-modern society.
Being a one-man-band, and a political dissident makes XIV Sacred Words more than just one band among other bands, but a project with a message at odds with the entirety of the social and political establishment on the global stage.
Great personal risk comes with such a project. The powers that be would love to see it broken, penniless, and unpersoned. In many countries, such music is punishable by imprisonment. Despite the risks and looming threats of persecution, XIV Sacred Words continues onward for the sake of the very name it bears.
ARE YOU A NAZI?
This is a question that requires a definition in terms. 'Nazi' can mean anything, National Socialist, White supremacist, or just someone who hates Jews. It can also mean just about anything the speaker wants it to mean, usually as an identifier for someone they dislike.
I reject the label "nazi" because there's no objective definition for me to accept.
WHAT ARE THE '14 SACRED WORDS'?
We must secure the existence of our people and a future for White children.
It has been labeled by the ADL, SPLC, and other such organizations as a "White supremacist hate slogan". Although, I would challenge anyone to find hate or supremacy in these words alone, without the mandatory interpretive lens of such organizations.
WHY DO YOU PLAY METALCORE?
It's difficult for me to consider my music strictly Metalcore, although I understand this is the label I've been given. There are many different elements that go into 14SW that fall very much outside of the scope of generic Metalcore.
As for why I've chosen to play this genre, I just play music I'd want to listen to.
WHAT ARE YOUR POLITICAL AND RELIGIOUS VIEWS?
My personal views on these things mean nothing in regard to my music. Yes, I have deeply held political and religious beliefs, but they are not the primary focus of 14SW.
Anything you wish to speculate on in these areas can be interpreted through the lyrics.
