There are no straight lines, there are only bodies and bandages, and a song that sets a slow Blade Runner crescendo.

This video is an amazing piece of artistry. It's got a Sci-Fi theme, and a desolate, industrial, geometric kind of feel. There are no straight lines, there are only bodies and bandages, and a song that sets a slow Blade Runner crescendo.

It's all black and red, and gray, like a cloudy sunset. The melody carries the breaks, and the sampled hits do the rest of the work. It's a battery-powered drummer boy maestro-ing a tour of the Getty, at night, with zombies.
