Music Moment: Gatekeeper “Chains”

26 Oct


Ok i´m feeling very lazy tonight. i think it must be the food that i ate. While my friend Aðalsteinn has his Plokkfiskur, we Scots have our trusty Haggis. Damn it was good and meaty, but alas it has rendered me more or less powerless and i thin I’m going to call it a day.

But not before i manage to squeeze a few pips of musical nuttiness from my depleted glans. I’ve been a bit of a fan of GATEKEEPER after getting hold of a copy of their “Optimus Maximus” EP earlier this year. I love their old school euro-EBM beats that blend the old John Carpenter style horror with the Doom Disco of Warning and Belgian 80’s electro-industrial music. Trent Reznor would be so proud. And is that a few Star Wars samples i hear there?

Their debut album “Giza” is out in December and this is the first video, “Chains”. The video looks intriguing as it resembles those early 90’s computer graphics videos that used to accompany techno releases. Except this one looks like a bad rendition of Ghost Rider. Lovely!
