Ira George Young

I lost my career of 15 years. My life turned upside down. I always had a bit of anxiety and depression, but losing my job brought me to an all time low. Sleepless nights of paranoia. Days filled with blinding rage and self loathing. I was overcome with fear and anger.

“They were describing exactly what I was going through, and their music gave me so much energy to pull myself up out of the eternal pit of darkness I was sinking into.”

My life was getting sucked into a vortex of darkness. I was basically losing it. My son introduced me to a couple of heavy metal bands. I listened to them, and I couldn’t stop the tears. They were describing exactly what I was going through, and their music gave me so much energy to pull myself up out of the eternal pit of darkness I was sinking into. It was like I had a group of men who were with me hanging off a ledge, screaming for me to pull myself up. It gave me so much positive energy to get over it and move on. These bands saved my life.
