Despite how sinister it sounds, Suicide Ali and even the name of this website, The Perfect Suicide, has nothing to do with telling you how to commit the "perfect" suicide. Such is not a healthy frame of mind, nor is condoned by this website. The name is in fact a metaphor for a deeper meaning of life.
As is explained in the interview with Tainted Reality, "ali" is Arabic for the word or meaning "supreme" or "perfect". If one peruses the lyrics by Suicide Ali you will discover that they contain a range of emotions and events in a persons life, leading up to a person's last days on the earth. They desire to tell the stories of what life is like, or something in a fantastical world that is all too like our everyday one, only spoken in a lyrical and imaginary way. Another way to put it is, if you were to die tomorrow, what will you remember and feel in those last moments? By choosing to live your life a certain way, you are in a sense choosing the way you will die.
Being led through life by the lyrics, the stories the songs tell are of joy, pain, death, heartbreak, and even events such as being born itself. Adding to this is a master web of sound, which is both accomplished and stirring. Each member plays a "role" as an actor does in an ongoing drama, which focuses on a specific aspect of their fantasy world. As such, they are pursuing a unique focus on life itself, told in a variety of ways that only they can do so well.
