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.
