ARTISTdirect.com has partnered with Emmure to premiere the moshcore's band new video for the song "Children of Cybertron," which is the first song off Speaker of the Dead.
It's a mosh-tastic two minutes, featuring the band in their tour bus, rocking bandanas that cover their faces, smokin' fatties and hanging out. The choppy, fast-paced action fits the mood and speed of the song, but if you blink, you'll miss some of the action, so pay attention for the following two minutes. It crushes just as much as a Transformer, maybe even more.
What we love is the claustrophobic nature of the shots, capturing the tight, closed-in nature of a tour bus, which is essentially a band's house-on-wheels. It's certainly not spacious, especially in the bunk area, and this video demonstrates this cold, hard fact of band life. We love the guy in the background, whose face is wholly covered by a bandana. It's sorta creepy-scary, right? The song is also unequivocally badass, brutal, and brilliant. That's why you need to watch this now!
This is exactly what modern heavy music should be!
Nevertheless, it's two minutes of full-on, bottom-heavy, low-ended, face-melting, brain-smashing, ear-annihilating, brutal metal and we like it. So watch it now and try to stop yourself from launching a circle pit in your living room.
