This video is amazing. That’s all.

I don’t understand why it is so hard to find a decent quality version of this video online and why it’s nearly impossible to find the original track on Spotify. It is pretty awesome and definitely one of the best things Thomas Bengalter has put out, the majority of Daft Punk’s work included. I have very fond memories of this song in the late 90s. Doesn’t it make you want to dance? And I mean DANCE??

…here’s a perfect example.

“she is sexy and she shit on a head”

Yup. That pretty much sums it up for me too.

There’s nothing more metal than the color pink.

Leave it to the Japanese to add harmonized growls and a singer who sounds more like he takes his cues from Phil Anselmo or Kevin Sharp of Brutal Truth than your typical doomy, Black Sabbath-inspired singer, but very very badly. Actually, you know, if you replaced this guy with Phil Anselmo, you could tell me this was a Down song and I would totally believe you.

Either way, though I like what he’s trying to do and this band’s sound overall, the singer just isn’t good. Not “not good enough to pull off what he’s trying to do”, but “not good at all”. Which is a shame because this band could be great if they had a more capable singer.

I think I like this band. I sent this video to Deegan and it blew his mind that there would be saxophone in metal and I was all, “Holy shit, Deegan, have you not heard Ihsahn’s solo records?!” And HE was all, “Dude, I don’t find a lot of weird metal unless it comes from you.” And I’m all, “http://open.spotify.com/album/78cdLSogu9HIZyD540GTZC” And we had a good laugh.

But, as it turns out with a little digging, it’s the same saxophone! Same dude! No wonder they’re both awesome.

So, yeah, in conclusion, I like this band. Check it out. Also, there are naked boobs in the video, so if you work in a place where people care about that, wait until you’re home.

Leland Palmer lip-syncing sad pop songs? Yes, please. It’s so Twin Peaksy. Thank you, Eric Wareheim.

YES.

What is this guy, the Dutch Jan Terri? I am kind of falling in love with him. I alos love that he references the scooter song below.

This is changing my life.
