VANISHER TAKE A TRIP TO THE GARDEN OF EDEN IN NEW “MARTYR TO THE FLAMES” VIDEO
There are lots of reasons to like North Carolina’s Vanisher:
- Siqq riffs (dudes from Bloodjinn are in this band)
- Heavy, modern metal with only clean vocals that aren’t cheesy (how come no one else does this?)
- Excellent songwriting
- Consistent and awesome visuals (always)
- They are the only dudes besides me and Axl who actively worship Guns N’ Roses single-take “Garden of Eden” music video
Re #5: Check out their new video for “Martyr to the Flames.” Points #1-4 are obvious — esp. dig the film-in-half-time / speed-it-up-to-full-time trick, which never gets old — but point #5 was confirmed in an email with Justin Reich, who’s put down his bass in favor of taking on true “frontman” duties. Justin made me feel special because I am “the ONLY person who got the reference;” we then proceeded to fellate each other simultaneously over the Internet and live happily ever after.
After the jump, “Garden of Eden,” for reference:
I actually haven’t watch that one in quite some time — who the fuck are the two dudes flailing their arms around behind the drums?
