What the...??

Thy Art is Murder Can’t Even Make a Fucking Playthrough Video Correctly

0

A press release announcing Thy Art is Murder’s new playthrough video for their song “Dear Desolation” calls the clip “unique.” Truth be told, the best adjective to describe the clip is “fucking bizarre.”

The video begins with slo-mo shots of guitarist Bill Kelliher’s Mini-Me walking slowly down a flight of dark stairs and into a bar, likely leading the viewer the think, “Gee, this sure is dramatic for a goddamn playthrough video.” Then, upon entering the bar, he appears to acknowledge two invisible people (eventually, we do get a few quick shots of a bartender, but I guess that person wasn’t available for these shots or something).

And that’s when things get really weird.

The remainder of the video splits its time between documenting Mini-Kelliher playing the song, drinking beer, and, I think, watching/rocking out to himself performing. It’s never made entirely clear where the stage is in relation to the bar so I’m not 100% positive that’s what’s happening. Also he may at various points be “communicating” with more invisible people.

I honestly can’t tell if they were aiming for David Lynchian surrealism or not. The clip seems to be simultaneously the most elaborate and least thought-out playthrough video of all time.

Watch it below and see if you can figure out what the fuck is going on. The band’s latest album, also called Dear Desolation, is out now on Nuclear Blast.
