***WARNING: Graphic Imagery***

We can't even being to imagine what this must have been like for them.

As you're surely aware, Paris went through a series of terrorist attacks almost two weeks ago that left 130 people throughout the city dead.

89 of those victims were attending a concert at the Bataclan on Nov. 13 to see the band Eagles of Death Metal perform, and while the members have spoken out about the massacre and the loss of their merchandise manager Nick Alexander, their first full sit-down interview was released on Wednesday.

VICE spoke with co-founder/vocalist Jesse Hughes, bassist Matt McJunkins, guitarist Eden Galindo, drummer Julian Dorio, and sound engineer Shawn London about their terrifying experience, as well as co-founder Joshua Homme who was not at the venue the night of the shootings.

It's an incredibly moving 26-minute piece, and while many would probably see the killings as reason to never play again, EODM stated that they're actually doing the opposite — using the ordeal to provoke positive change in the world.

The U.S. State Department is urging citizens to be careful this holiday season.

In light of the recent terror attacks all across the globe, government officials have issued a worldwide travel alert on Monday to inform Americans of the possible risks.

The Department writes on its travel page:

"Current information suggests that ISIL (aka Da'esh), al-Qa'ida, Boko Haram, and other terrorist groups continue to plan terrorist attacks in multiple regions. These attacks may employ a wide variety of tactics, using conventional and non-conventional weapons and targeting both official and private interests."

The site continues by referencing recent terror targets and tragedies, adding:

"Authorities believe the likelihood of terror attacks will continue as members of ISIL/Da'esh return from Syria and Iraq. Additionally, there is a continuing threat from unaffiliated persons planning attacks inspired by major terrorist organizations but conducted on an individual basis. Extremists have targeted large sporting events, theatres, open markets, and aviation services. In the past year, there have been multiple attacks in France, Nigeria, Denmark, Turkey, and Mali. ISIL/Da'esh has claimed responsibility for the bombing of a Russian airliner in Egypt."

In order to keep citizens informed and cautious during the popular travel time, the Department also offered up suggestions about ways to stay safe, saying:

Paris Attacks: Hear A Survivor's Story Of How His Life Was Saved — By His Prosthetic Leg

Filed under: Sad SadViolenceViral: News

What a shocking story of survival!

Gregoire Philonenko was at the Bataclan theater on Friday night with his 19-year-old son and some friends to see the band Eagles of Death Metal when the terror attacks were launched across Paris.

As people began to die around him, Philonenko and his son both fell to the ground and played dead, hoping they would miraculously be left alone — until one of the terrorists began walking their way and shooting roughly every third person lying down to make sure that they were really dead.

Philonenko wanted him and his son to crawl away, but he couldn't without being seen by the terrorists, and a disability left him with limited mobility — he has a prosthetic right leg.

The father turned to his son at that point, according to an interview he did later with the BBC, and said:

This is just sad and so wrong.

Ibrahim Abdeslam detonated a suicide bomb outside Comptoir Voltaire — near the Bataclan concert hall — on Friday night as part of the deadly terror attacks that rocked Paris. Today, his mother is claiming it all happened because of "stress."

And now, Ibrahim's brother Salah is a fugitive from justice after he escaped to Belgium before police could capture him after the attacks.

The Abdeslam family — rocked to their core that their sons were involved in something so heinous — spoke to reporters about the events, saying that Ibrahim carried out the attacks because he was "stressed," and that they were "shocked" and "thinking of the victims."

Ibrahim's other brother, Mohamed — who was arrested after the attacks but later released without charge — said of the tragedy:
