“Sleep… stay asleep.
My soul yearns for one last look at you
Before I leave you here to be hidden within idyllic peace
It’s the perfect memory and I keep it close to me
Bound with wire
Cut me deep into the seams
Flow the colours of the queen
I live like I’m the only one, the fragile one that fights to survive
Crown the liar
Buried deep beneath the cross
Tainted hearts forever lost
Sweet treasure, let go of all you know
Sweet treasure, you are the one, you are my only true pleasure
Now watch me burn it all down, parasite town
Far down below it’s a fight for survival
So scared as I am of you
I’ll burn it all down, parasite town
I call this survival
So scared as I am of you, parasite town.”
I was trying to look for something new that I thought would be cool, but other than having the same problem as Matt – finding videos of bands in forests or empty warehouses, I thought I would revisit some old Tool videos because they are pretty damn cool. And, sometimes one doesn’t have to actually understand what is going on in the video for it to be cool. Nor, does one actually have to see the band in it for it to be cool. Sometimes you just have to look at it and go, What the fuck? That’s what I think of this video. Not to mention, Tool has been talking about an album that might be released in the next decade or so. So, why not revisit? Oh, this one is uncut so if you don’t like swear words…this is your disclaimer.
Many of you will find this video to be beneficial to your mental health. Yes, you are the masses who are feeling lost, empty and alone because it’s the weekend. We know how much you miss the office. Never mind, you only have to endure two days before you can get back to those invoice books, filing cabinets and rush-hour traffic.
Let Carnifex improve your state of mind by infusing you with grimness and brutality. Their deathcore can rip out any sensitivity in your soul if you have one or believe you have one.
This is a live performance of a track from their most recent album, “Die Without Hope”. I’m afraid deathcore has the opposite effect on me. It makes me smile, dance and chase happy bubbles.
Let’s have something light, bubbly and amusing to celebrate the arrival of another weekend. Here’s what the drummer, Pat, says about this video, a cover a of a Journey song: “You know a lot of bands cover this song, and they do a great job. It really is a great song. When the idea came up to have us do a shot for shot remake of the video, we lost it! When it came time to shoot the video, none of us could keep a straight face, with the mullet wigs, and horribly awesome wardrobe. Goodwill rocks, by the way! Once we played the video next to the original music video, by Journey, we knew that we had something totally hilarious, and cool.”
In addition to Pat, Glass Delirium is Michelle on vocals, Scott on guitars, Aeon on bass, and David on keys. The band’s home town is Denver, Colorado, and you can meet them on Facebook:
“There’s gotta be some way out of here!”
This is the new video from melodic hardcore band Enabler, who released their outstanding sophomore album La Fin Absolute du Monde in May this year. Punky, crunchy and speedy!
