Throwback: “The Gift” by Five.Bolt.Main

If you watch the music video for “The Gift” by Nu-Metal act Five.Bolt.Main it may come across as a strong one but it becomes harder hitting when you find out it’s based on a true story. Flaw frontman Chris Volz formed the band in Louisville, Kentucky back in 2005 which spawned a single album of studio material in “Venting” the following year. An album in part at least an ode to the Volz dearly departed step mother Helga who introduced him to music and died by suicide when he was aged 11 or 12, the video depicts scenes from what could have been the events of the time. This one just goes to show that you can have grit and integrity in such a short piece which tells so much in just a few short minutes.
