Powerglove Premiere ‘Batman’ Video
(New York, NY) — International videogame metal act POWERGLOVE have revealed their brand new video for “BATMAN,” the lead track off their latest release “Saturday Morning Apocalypse” which came out late last year.
Guitarist Chris Marchiel offers his own explination. “David Brodsky and I just finished our music video for Batman. In typical POWERGLOVE fashion we did things a little differently. After shooting our green screen performance footage we captured tons of “sprite” images of ourselves in the style of Mortal Kombat then processed those into full sets of 16 bit action moves. Then, instead of just animating those, I programmed several video game fight scenarios with the band as playable characters and recorded takes of me playing through the mini games. The result is a combination of green screen performance in original 16 bit environments, traditional sprite based animation and recorded gaming sequences and the end result is silly, unique and just plain fun.
The band released Saturday Morning Apocalypse last year to much critical praiase, “Saturday Morning Apocalypse proves that fast paced metal guitar solos and riffs can be injected into cartoon theme songs and be extremely fun to listen to,” says cosmosgaming.com.
