HOLD YOUR PEACE!

During these hard times, we may find it difficult to hold and maintain peace within and that is what the enemy is stealing from you, your PEACE. Don’t let him win!

Even if there are struggles now, you can work your way up to victory by first holding your peace. The world and the people around us may throw sticks and stones, but if you choose to hold your peace, you win.

Remind yourself always of this and live in peace.

Have a good one!

Trust: Répression (1980)

Trust’s eponymous debut from 1979 was an underrated rallying cry for European hard rock, signaling that consumer tastes were finally turning the page on punk rock, disco, and other late ‘70s popular music trends.

So when the Parisians’ sophomore LP, Répression, was released 40 years ago this month, it reinforced a couple of truths …

First: frontman Bernie Bonvoisin wasn’t about to stop singing in his native tongue, just because their first album had gained some notoriety beyond France’s borders – especially among specialized magazines across the English Channel, where the New Wave of British Heavy Metal was just about to crest.

Second: that this imminent “changing of the guard,” from punk to metal, wouldn’t stop the band (completed by guitarist Norbert Krief, bassist Yves Brusco and drummer Jeannot Hanela) from writing songs in their unique, half-punk, half-metal style (although that would eventually change).

And I’d be willing to bet that it was this early example of what we’d later call “crossover” that helped endear Trust to New York thrashers Anthrax, who famously covered this LP’s opening standout, “Antisocial,” on 1988’s State of Euphoria, with adapted English lyrics, of course.

Listening to Répression four decades on, it may all may sound like tried-and-true hard rock, but just wait until you reach the unexpected horns that punctuate “Au Nom de la Race,” and the boogie-woogie piano and a sax solo in the fierce head-banger “Fatalité.” 

And some of Trust’s singular appeal – Bonvoisin’s always topical, incendiary lyrics – also got lost in translation; not that you need to speak French (I don’t) to get the gist, thanks to Bernie’s genuine fury and disgust as he rails against all kinds of social injustices: from wrongful imprisonment (“Monsier Comédie”) and police brutality (“Instinct de Mort”), to urban oppression (“Sors Tes Griffes”) and organized religion (“Les Sectes”).

All of Répression’s heavy rock invective was aptly dedicated to recently deceased AC/DC singer Bon Scott, with whom Trust had established a friendly rapport when the two bands toured together in ‘79 – look closely and you’ll see that Bernie is sporting an AC/DC pin on his leather jacket.

But change, inexorable change, was looming right around the corner for Trust …

The group’s next LP, Marche ou Creve, featured a young British drummer named Nicko McBrain, and 1983’s self-titled fourth effort featured Clive Burr (yes, they basically swapped drummers with Iron Maiden), but neither LP had as many great songs, let alone the instinctive moxie of the first two.

And Trust’s career would really skid off the rails after that, as they finally buckled to external pressure and penned English lyrics for ‘84’s poorly received Man’s Trap, which ultimately led to the band’s breakup the following year.

More Trust: Répression.

How could you fucking do this to me? What the hell is wrong with you? I’ve given you as many chances as I possibly could. I keep convincing myself that you deserve it, you know? In the name of love. Not that you know what that means. How can you have the fucking audacity to sit infront of me and say “I’ve never raised my hand on you”. Yes you have. You fucking have. You’ve set timers and hit me every time I couldn’t finish my food in the set time. You’ve dragged me down from my aunt’s house and hit me when I refused to eat tomatoes. You’ve hit me till my face got bruised and lived to your own brother saying I fell. How could you? How could you not remember asking me to pick a shoe to be hit with and going to bed to take a nap as if nothing had happened? I have spent my entire life trying to make you happy and you still have the nerve to sit in front of me and call me a disappointment. I hate you. I am afraid of you. I have a panic attack every time you raise your voice. How can you blame me for not wanting to spend time with you? How can you blame me for not sharing every detail of my life with you if the only thing you’ve ever done is criticize me? I have dreaded coming home and knowing you were there my entire life. I have cried in the parking lot because I didn’t want to face you at home. And you have the motherfucking nerve to say I am ungrateful? For what? Love? Care? Not like you ever gave me any of those things. I can’t maintain eye contact with you because every time I look into your eyes I remember the time you hit me and then asked me to go tie my hair up so you could see me better while hitting me. Don’t you fucking dare blame me for being distant. Don’t blame me for not wanting to spend time with you. Don’t blame me for never being able to trust another man again. I hate you. And you know what the worst part is? I would still give you a chance. If you actually understood how everything you did fucked me up, I would still work on my relationship with you. But I think the most fucked up part of it all is that I still love you.

Gary Zukav, The Seat of the Soul
Trust allows you to call forth your negativities in order to heal them. It allows you to follow your feelings through your defenses to their sources, and to bring to the Light of consciousness those aspects of yourself that resist wholeness, that live in fear. The journey to authentic power requires that you become conscious of all that you feel. The unearthing and healing of your negativities may appear to be an endless process, but it is not. Your vulnerabilities and weaknesses and fears are not different from those of your fellow humans. Do not despair because your humanness awakens.
