Twisted Music Video Of The Week Vol. 110: Buckethead “Spokes For The Wheels Of Torment”

It’s been a SUPER hectic week and I needed some music that reflected that insanity. So for this week’s Twisted Music Video Of The Week I’ve taken a suggestion from a reader (I can’t remember who, so please state your name in the comments to be recognized) and I’m bring you Buckethead‘s “Spokes For The Wheels Of Torment”! Using scans of Hieronymus Bosch’s paintings as well as originals, directors Syd Garon and Eric Henry created a surreal, violent expression of Buckethead’s music.

Direct from the YouTube description by Garon: “So Buckethead has someone send me some mp3’s of his new album without any comment or album art. I am struck by the “Spokes” track and I *instantly* visualize animated Hieronymus Bosch in my head. I scan a few of his paintings in and make a 15 second test animation. A week or so later I drive to Buckethead’s secret headquarters and play him the test. He freaks out and takes me into his recording area, right there on the wall is a huge Hieronymus Bosch poster. Buckethead had been imagining the painting coming to life when he wrote the song. This was one of the most effortless things I have ever done, it felt like it was meant to be.

Head on below for the insanity!
