J-Rock Fridays Vol. 6: Halloween EditionOctober 30, 2009
Greetings, and welcome to the special Halloween edition of J-Rock Fridays. Some of the videos here are fun, with a little bit of spook, and others are downright disturbing. Watch at your own risk!
world’s end girlfriend- “We are the massacre”
WARNING: DISTURBING CONTENT In the anime Yu Yu Hakusho, former spirit detective Sensui was shown a never ending videotape detailing all the crimes and wars of humanity. I’m pretty sure these clips were taken from that video. Nothing but 6 minutes of archival footage of murder, stabbing, strangling, throat slitting, jumping out windows, jumping off buildings, and just plain death. World’s end girlfriends’s music was creepy enough but this video just put him over the edge. At least it’s in black and white. (myspace)
Utada Hikaru- “Can You Keep A Secret?’
I suppose you’re wondering why international pop-sensation Utada Hikaru is on a column like this, but I guess you’ll just have to wait for the twist ending. (myspace)
Dir en grey- “Obscure”
WARNING: DISTURBING CONTENT This is easily the most disgusting, disturbing video I have seen. But if it wasn’t for this video, I probably wouldn’t have given Dir en grey a chance. What to look for: robotic geisha penises, Kyo throwing up on himself, some guy ripping his heart out and then eating it, etc. (myspace)
mutyumu- “L’œil est Dieu”
I’m not sure what’s going on here. All I know is there’s a dead body in the bathtub and a body-bag in the forest. Let’s leave it up for interpretation. Although the real mystery here is why an opera singer is in a heavy metal band. (myspace)
FACT- “A Fact of Life (Boom Boom Satellites Remix)”
What can be more creepy than watching Factboy Slim dance for 7 minutes? (myspace)
The Mirraz- “5.5.5st”
I thought I’d leave you with something a little more fun. This is The Mirraz’s second J-Rock Fridays appearance in a row. (myspace)
Thanks for reading.
