Behind The Tracks: Yakoeza - March Of The Mindless Sheep (Single) (2022)

March of the mindless Sheep is a hardcore/metal track starting out with a soft, vulnerable approach in atmosphere until the drums open up the track like a machine gun causing mayhem. Throughout the track metal and hardcore influences, especially in the chorus and the breakdown, are noticeable. March of the mindless sheep is a protest against inhumanity during the war. Inspired by events throughout history, with the Ukraine-Russia war still raging on as we speak.

Lyricalwise the song asks its listeners to think about choices, as if they were marching in the soldier lines themselves, that lead up to the point they find themselves in now. Do you feel as if you’re doing the right thing? Do you trust those who give the orders? After all the horrors you’ve endured and seen, don’t you have an ounce of regret? The song aims to create a sense of urgency, as it could only be a matter of time until the war is on your doorstep.

The process:

When focusing on the writing-process, Yakoeza likes to work old-fashioned by coming together in a rehearsal room and sharing ideas, followed by writing songs on the spot. Most of the time the band members create an instrumental concept version, followed by writing the lyrics inspired by a combination of topics and the song's vibe itself.

The lyric video:

The statements in the song have also been visually extended through the release of the accompanying lyric video. Here you'll see a seemingly endless barrage of fighting scenes because generally, war only leads to more war instead of the so-called 'desired' peace while claiming more lives day by day. The video was made by Jeffrey Niesing, who did an excellent job of translating the feeling and presenting the intended purpose of the song.
