METALSUCKS MVR (MOST VALUABLE READER) BEN ROBSON TAKES A “MEGAPOOP”
Gotta love this Ben Robson dude. First, he won our totally amazing Nevermore “Create Your Own Conspiracy” contest last year. Then he proved he was no fluke by sharing some of his original music with us. And now he’s really topped himself with this video for for “Megapoop,” a new song he’s co-written with two European guitar players — Luka Žnideršič from Slovenia and Matthijs from the Netherlands.
This thing is ten times more entertaining than 98% of the so-called “real” music videos people send us — and the song rocks, too. Ben can sing his ass off, and he’s got some killer dance moves. It’s amazing that the internet has allowed him to collaborate with other musicians from around the world, but I really hope some decent American band swoops Robson up soon, ’cause I’m dying to see what he can do live.
And if you’re interested, here’s another video, of Žnideršič and van den Hoven playing an instrumental version of the song. It’s not quite as entertaining as Robson’s video, although it is definitely the first-ever metal act to have a choreographed stop n’ smile.
