All this Nine Inch Nails coverage that’s been going on lately has really put me into a dirty “tech” kinda mood. And since that’s what originally drew me to Walk As Chaos‘s video for “Impasse”, I figured I’d share it once again!
This video has all sorts of influences and inspiration going on within, from Johnny Mnemonic to Tetsuo: Iron Man to Tool‘s video for “Prison Sex”, this Twisted Music Video of The Week is a sci-fi/horror fan’s wet dream! Check it out below and have an awesome weekend! READ MORE
Extreme prog metal band Walk As Chaos has released a very cool video for their first single “Impasse”. The band is a collaboration between Alan Sacha Laskow (Divinity, Enditol) and Jerrod Maxwell-Lyster (Out of Your Mouth, Autobody). Using stop motion photography, computer graphic elements mixed with live action, and fascinating set and costume design, the video has a rough, dirty futuristic feel permeating throughout. Check it out below.
Laskow comments, “We are super excited about our new music video for “Impasse”. [Director] Doug Cook went the extra mile and we are proud to say we feel it sticks out as being modern & inventive – just like our music. When we started talking about how to bring the song into the visual realm, Doug decided the backdrop should be a futuristic world made up of lines that had a difficult time connecting with each other, like a maze. He also wanted to put Jerrod and I into situations that showcased our collaboration (singer/engineer) but also the frustration one can be faced with when being at a impasse, whether is be Man vs. Man, Man vs. Tech and Man vs. Nature etc.” READ MORE
