Thank you to both Ben and Sam for posting about this respectively on Ars Technica and the Ars Lounge. My apologies to teh Lounge for re-posting about it.
This video has three things that pique my interest:
* Beautifully crafted visuals, with loads of hidden meanings and messages.
* Foreign rock music, in a language that I don't understand.
* A critique of modern, so-called communism.
The song itself is kinda stuck in my head by now, after listening a few times. For some reason it makes me think of another song by the Finnish band Eppu Normaali, something about the simple yet fascinating guitar play and the russian words and tones.
Anywho... If you have a few minutes to spare for some new music that you probably haven't heard before, here's some linkage.
* This site has the .MP3 and .MOV as downloads.
* A critical dissection of the imagery and message in the video clip.
* The Ars Technica thread.
