A.K.A. "Lego Blast Vader".
So... almost 2years since the LEGO® Cryptopsy animation video, I have finally mustered sufficient energy to do another one. Hereby is my loving tribute to metal drumming, all things AKERCOCKE and, in particular, Mr David Gray.
Hope you enjoy.
Band: Akercocke (UK)
Song: Eyes of the Dawn
Album: Words That Go Unspoken, Deeds That Go Undone
Label: Earache Records © 2005
In my view, these guys are undoubtedly one of the best British Metal bands of this century. If you haven't done so already, check out this über awesome band:
NOTE: I clearly do not own the copyright of this track, and I sincerely hope the band, their management and label representatives don't object too much to this project.
- Photos taken with Apple iPhone 4 camera (I finally upgraded from the 3GS, phew!!!)
- Frames captured using Stop Motion Studio App by Cateater LLC.
- Drumming section is set at 15 frames per second (15 fps).
- Video edited with Windows Live Movie Maker.
- Sound samples: Lovingly borrowed from the Star Wars™ saga.
- And of course, LEGO®!
P.S. And for those unacquainted with the world of extreme metal, "Blast" as in a "blast beat", generally comprises a repeated, sixteenth-note figure played at a very fast tempo, and divided uniformly among the bass drum, snare, and ride, crash, or hi-hat cymbal. [Source: Wiki]
