Multifaceted artist Ezediel’s last release, “A Dark Knight Screaming Inside”, comes
back to the more primitive tunes of “I Wash My Hands in the Blood” (2021 – 1.5MLN
streams) and instantly puts you in a trance with his unique ritualistic music design and
It begins with a quote from The Batman, as the track unfolds with a sample inspired by the
recognizable Fever Ray’s “If I Had a Heart”, mixed with humming and broken at times
by intervals. The song inspiration comes also from Hideo Kojima “Death Stranding”
soundtrack and tribute to the Low Roar’s song “I’ll keep coming”, whose frontman Ryan
Karazija recently passed away.
The lyrics are sung in Ezediel’s distinctive deep voice and deal with mental health and
the Jungian concept of shadow. His words resonate with those from Jung himself – “I
have a Dark Knight… No, I am the Dark Knight”. This song is an invitation for the
listener to go on a heroic journey, to immerse themself in the chant like tunes, and find
and fight their own dark knight, their shadow. The beat itself progresses to a rhythm
distorted with static towards the end, but the song wraps up with a much clearer note
and one hopeful last whisper – “So let it be. Shadows around me, the Light inside me”.
