Album: Skills In Pills
Genre: Industrial Metal
I feel like I always post some weird songs on Sunday.
Probably my favorite thing to come out of 2015 was Lindemann, the joint efforts of Till Lindemann of Rammstein and Peter Tägtgren of Hypocrisy and PAIN.
I listened through most of the album, but I never got past Yukon, which was the track right before this majestic tune. On an impulse in like, the beginning on January, I decided to finally give this song a listen. I had heard it had a really solid music video and since it was like, 1 am, I figured it was a good time to check it out.
I feel I should clarify, this song is meant as a parody. Till has said that in interviews it's a joke song about a friend of his with too many kids.
Now this video. My goodness it's a well done video. The main section is in that all white stage and I really feel like that just helps everything stand in a really cool contrast. The stage has this borderline cheesy Broadway vibe to it that I really love. The second verse is a little weird as it delves into Till venturing into the homosexual spectrum to avoid having more kids instead of, you know, just being a little more careful than he apparently had been in the past.
The pig visual of him with all these parasitic entities is solid though if you want to rep kids being nothing more than money pits.
All in all while I may not agree with the message of the song (or at least the perceived message), I can't deny that the art of the video is solid. If you wanna see the making of video here's the link. It's a fun watch and explains the thinking behind the video pretty well.
