 Komm Süsser Tod


Komm Süsser Tod, from Kent, Ohio, are a tremendous noise/screamo band that have decided to tackle an important but often overlooked problem in our community:  Suicide.  This is their response to the problem.  Comprised of Darion- Guitar/ Vocals; Dom- Drums; Scotty- Bass/Vocals; and Tariro- Noise and coming from my neighborhood (from Youngstown myself), Komm Süsser Tod is serious about suicide.  In fact, this is the message the include with their download:

Depression, Self Harm, Suicide.

These tracks are written, recorded, and released by us as an escape from the pain of every day life. Struggling with depression is a symptom of the world we live in, and d-beat raw punk is retaliation. Suicidal thoughts may haunt us, but we will always have one another. Strength through unity, Unity through Punk.
