Like it says in the title, we recently gave Swedish experimental rockers The Skull Defekts new album a perfect 10 / 10, in the process describing it as “Undoubtedly one of the most inventive albums you will ever hear”. They’ve just released a new video which is a necessary watch for anyone favouring skilfully executed hypnotic noise rock and experimental electronics. At the same time.

In the video for The Known Unknown, director / editor Joe DeNardo uses mixed imagery from American football, naval battle footage and a science tape exploring ‘The Mind’ to create the visuals to accompany the track”

“I tried to play off the lyrics a bit to visually approximate an idea of TOTAL CONFUSION,” says DeNardo, “though not without some playfulness…”

The Skull Defekts will tour Europe later this year – keep your eyes open for the dates.

Guy is a former full time member of the Louder Than War editorial team, who's since moved on to pastures new. Music's been a large part of his life since he first stumbled across Peel on his tranny as a fifteen year old. His whole approach to music was learnt from Peel in fact, which includes having as inclusive a taste in music as possible. Guy devotes most of his time looking for new music & although he's been known to say "the only good music is new music" he pretty much accepts this is bollocks. Favourite band The Minutemen.
