Great stuff, Derek. What a trippy video. I enjoyed watching it.

The song is really good too. I like it better than the first one. Very catchy and listenable, especially for just chilling out late at night. The drumming is a perfect fit for the music. Great job man. I'm gonna go have a listen again with two thumbs up!

Cheers brother, That means a lot.

The one thing I love about this band is all the songs are very different from one another and they have their own voice. I'm so glad we were able to pull off our vision for this music.

I love this video. She's doing another one for us....and, it's for charity.

Check this out...

Menace and sand artist Kseniya Simonova (Winner of Ukraine's Got Talent), have teamed up to support a Ukranian Children's Cancer Charity. "Painted Rust" is part one of two videos created by Kseniya Simonova for the charity. They are trying to raise funding and support for Marina Loskutova, a Ukranian Sports champion with kidney cancer. Marina has qualified for treatment in the UK, and so far Menace and Kseniya have raised 68,000 euros already, which is halfway towards their goal of 121,000 euros. Marina is about to begin the next stage of treatment, but there is still a large sum to generate.

"We hope that the powerful creative message behind our goal is enough to inspire some to help in any way they can", Mitch comments. "So much passion, preparation and positive energy has gone into the production of this unique collaboration. You're in a position to make a difference to a family in desperate need, and help a small group of people rebuild their future. Here is a PayPal link if you would feel kind enough to donate anything, even 1 euro/dollar would increase her chances of survival and will give hope to a family without a voice in a desperate situation."

Wow! Now that's a stunning video!
I'm sure more bands will be interested in teaming up with Kseniya for music videos if they haven't already.

I like the songs being different so far. This one is more on the mellow but more atmospheric side while the first one had more drive/punch. Nice contrast.

I love the sonic landscape you painted as much as I love the incredible work of the sand artist. Both video & audio move through a journey. That video/music empathy vibe really adds to the whole. On their own, each are superb, but together, they're spectacular! One sign of greatness is the whole being greater than the sum of it's parts. Another is enduring delight. I know this work ticks the first box big time, & it sounds like your charity effort will help tick the second.

Guru Drums are delighted to have made a modest contribution via Paypal.
