Video Metal combines Yoshihide Sodeoka's (aka C505) frenetic and bastardized analog video compositions in conjunction with his insidiously maniacal guitar and sample work into a hybridized form that will obliterate your senses. Proceed with caution as reported cases confirm that Sodeoka's distrorted Video Metal deities have been reaching through the screen and melting viewers on site.
