Industrial Metal act Gabriel and The Apocalypse (GATA) are back with a killer new video today, making its world premiere at Ghost Cult! They have released a clip of their explosive track “Systematic Chaos (Burn It Down Remix)” by Rick Stitch Thomas (Mushroomhead), which you can purchase at the link below. The clip has a throwback feel with footage of vocalist Lindy Gabriel shot in her home studio juxtaposed with some old school footage of war, trippy visuals, and a good old fashioned spanking among other things! Check it out!
The band commented:
We arrived home from tour in early March just as the country’s music venues were shutting down due to COVID and had some time on our hands. Everything was handled remotely, Lindy filmed the shots of herself in our studio and sent it over to the editor and wrapped it up pretty quickly. The song is a remix of our song Systematic Chaos from our “Alpha Bionic” full-length release last year.
