A new voice from Minneapolis the young homie Jibra'il aka IMAME has released Helena Hearse Fights the Big Bad Wolf of Badlands', a 3 track, thoughtful narrative exploring metal health. From the artist.
"This is a mental health care awareness project. This project is designed for people to go about that journey of mental health care to. Making this music has been an exploration of my own mental health care journey that I have had so far. The story of this music is the story of myself, as the character IMAME, going the path of a spiritual "walkabout" to cleanse my spirit of inner demons. Which is portrayed within the title of the project. The title is explaining that I have set out on this journey of a "spirit walk" to find my spirit guide that will fight the inner demons that have formed together and called themselves The Big Bad Wolf. This is an elaborate testimony on the very unconventional experiences that many with mental illness have, stories that can be abstract when received by a listener. The aim of this project is to make those connections between the unconventional and abstract experiences of a person or persons with mental illness with the art of storytelling. My own story is one I am willing to share publicly in the art of music.
Helena Hearse fights the Big Bad Wolf of Badlands is specifically a western about a young black male with a nation-worth of oppression upon him and how he triumphs through that adversity while the conflicts of his personal challenges are complicated by the conflicts in his environment. It is also about breaking apart stereotypes and stigmas that surround the world of and those with mental illness".
