……Your music is so autobiographical, harsh and dark.
Wang: Damn right. My music is devoid of tenderness or love. It’s like a big dark lake, which contains all the mud, tears, blood, sighs, and screams from its surrounding rivers. That’s why it’s heavy, deep and dark. Some sissy artists used to say that love is everything. That’s totally bullshit. When your right to live is being threatened, where do you get love? On June 4, 1989, when soldiers opened fire at students and residents, one thousand shouts of love couldn’t stop a single bullet.
