During this Halloween wanted to share one unique band.
You know how, when something bad happens in the real world, like a shooting, or a plane crash, movies and TV series with just a little bit of narrative similarities get delayed by months, or canceled entirely. It always irritated me.
Well, this group's approach is a complete opposite - they take actual events, and make a music video out of them, naming them after a murderer, maniac, or place of a mass shooting!
It's either very bold and awesome, or offensive and heartless - making money and fame on someone else's death and suffering. Although you could say that about any news channel...
Check out the teasers, they're cool.
Also, if you're going to watch only 1 video here, last one is best!
Anyway, to better understand the videos, not knowing half of these names, I've researched each a bit, and will provide short background before each music video, although must warn that some details are disturbing and nauseating.
Officially an Australian band, consisting of two main members, going by Father and singer Skynd herself. They're understandably hiding their identities, but fans have pinpointed Marina Ortega as the main singer, comparing her tattoos to those seen in videos.
Their music is like Prodigy that were gang raped by Die Antwoord, and seeked psychological help from Marilyn Manson.
Starting with the 'lighter', newer one - everyone has heard about the Columbine school shooting in 1999, right. Well, screw your feelings and moral standards, we're gonna "ra-ta-ta-ta" all over them.
First of their videos dealt with an Asian student from Canada, that was traveling through US alone, stopped at an LA Cecil Hotel, and disappeared.
Last seen by elevator video camera doing inadequate movements and gesticulations towards something unseen.
When people started complaining about strange sweet taste and smell of water, her body was found naked and decomposing for about 3 weeks in one of the water tanks on the roof of the hotel. No one knows how she got there. People were washing, drinking, and maybe even cooking with that water.
This one is the most recent, and lightest case. In 2015 17-year-old Michelle texted her then 18-year old boyfriend dozens of times with advice on how to kill himself. When he was finally in the midst of doing it called her, she convinced him to finish it. I've read those actual texts, presented to court, and the following song 95% consists of direct quotes.
