Devin Townsend’s Casualties Of Cool Releases Horror/Sci-Fi Animated Video

casualtiesofcoolmountaintop

Musical mad scientist Devin Townsend and vocalist Ché Aimee Dorval comprise the duo known as Casualties Of Cool, a new project that is more in line with country than the rock and metal that Townsend is known for. In fact, Townsend states that the music, “…sounds like Johnny Cash songs. Late night music, completely isolated sounding and different than anything I’ve done.

To give people a taste, the duo has released an official music video for the track “Mountain Top”, which was animated by Jessica Cope. The video shows an astronaut who lands on a planet that is more nightmarish than one would ever hope. Skeleton arms pop out of the land, eager to pull whatever they can into the ground. There’s also a strange woman who reminds me of the orb from Heavy Metal.

    I stopped listening to DT when he ran out of hatred. It’s just not the same.

      I still really enjoy his stuff. I may not headbang as much but I definitely love the musical insanity and stylings.

      • Werewolf

        I respect that. He’s always been an eccentric musical genius and still is (+extra points for the haircut). I just miss hearing the guy scream. He could do it so well.

        • JonathanBarkan

          He still does it quite a bit, especially on albums like ‘Deconstructed’. So good!

          • Werewolf

            *o* Thanks man! I’ll go pick it up.

          • JonathanBarkan

            Of course!

            (Just an appreciative follow up ^_^)…Juular….It’s almost Strapping!
