What do you get when you mix melodic death metal with some biopunk anime? You get the latest video from Taiwanese rockers Cthonic. I’m not 100% sure what’s going on here, but the name of the track, Defenders of Bú-Tik Palace. probably says it all. There’s outragious costumes, wire-fu, and some Dragonball Z looking shit that’s sure to light a fire under your Tuesday morning.
My buddy Jim/aka Spatial Distortion recently had his song, Light Tumbler, used as the soundtrack to a time-lapse video of 2012’s Amsterdam Light Festival.
