    Crossfaith’s metal-, noise- and EDM-blending track “Catastrophe” has been given a video to match.

    Flashing neon lights, snakes, and guitarists shredding on their axes—here’s a visual that lives up to the high-octane insanity of the track. The usual band-in-a-studio video takes a bizarre left turn, with an army of creepy, faceless mannequins strewn about the room.

    The Japanese electro-core group are gearing up for the release of their latest LP Ex_Machina on August 3. The concept album is set in an alternate reality where the rulers dehumanize people and turn them into drones.

    The band said, “This album is a grave warning for our future. I hope you guys listen to this, and think about what the meaning of this album is for you, feel how you’re feeling through this album, and start something for your future.”
