Buckethead wanks. hard. period. That video was so outrageously over-the-top that it really wasn`t as disturbing as I thought it was going to be. In fact I would have been much more disturbed by a picture of a half-naked, fat, sweaty, guy holding a que card that read:
"Something really, really disturbing."

Buckethead.
I can think of vetter names than that.... but I-A-B prolly won`t let me post them, so lets go with uh, suckethead.
BTW I hate him, but it counts as music. Saying something is or is not music is too subjective.

all you bunch of ugly humps who diss buckethead should try to play one thing off of his video lesson and post yourself doing it flawlessly. hes one of the most innovative musicians in the worlds existance. i think this is just his depiction of hell. well thats my 2 cents worth, you may now ignorantly strike out at my opinion whenever you please

and, as legend goes, the bucket and mask aren`t "gimmicks" per say... he`s a very talented musician but supposedly when he was first starting out he was very shy and the mask and stuff kinda helped with the stage fright

actually yeah maybe it is just a gimmick ha hell if i know, or care, cause he is an AMAZING musician, and i don`t even like metal

in all seriousnous, i love buckethead and all that comes from his bucket. the song i believe is supposed to be a musical description of hell, or ones internal torment. most of his songs are musical visualizations, or soundscapes (yes i stole the term from a death cube k album). the video basically reveals what buckethead saw when he wrote the song. this one resembles one of those religious paintings you see at churches, and art museums, not sure what they`re called (jewish).

Oh, and by laymen, I mean someone that is new to metal / death (I don`t know if that`s what fans consider it, but thats what the video gave the impression of) metal.

Was the video made by buckethead, or is it a fan creation? I mean, I didn`t like the music, but I can respect the talent that it takes to make it. The video, on the other hand, was o.k. at best. It just leaves me with one thought; why the hell were so many people posting on how horrible Modest Mouse is and leaving Buckethead alone? Looking at it from a laymen`s point of view, at least Modest Mouse has a vocal track (Yes, I personally know that not all songs need vocal tracks to kick ass, and I have several instrumentals that I like and listen to in regular rotation).

To be fair, Lauraly, all musicians have a gimmick. It`s just that some or more blatant than others.

Mine is going to be that I`m the sexiest guitar player in the world. Don`t even think about disagreeing :-)

I just don`t understand musicians who feel the need to have a gimmick in order to sell records. I prefer people who get by on talent.
(Yes, I think that wearing a KFC bucket and a mask count as a gimmick, but I`m not dissing those of you who like that sort of thing, I just don`t get it.)

Animating that Bosch painting worked really well for this piece. Some of Albrecht Duerer`s work wold probably also fit this style.

"Which either means I`m fail at understanding internet sarcasm, or LoofahBoy is really an idiot."

Technically, both are right on the money. But the funny thing is, its you who ends up looking like a silly arse in the end, Pabasa. =P

Mmmmmmm KFC buckets.... *drool*

Nope, he was wrong in claiming it wasn`t music. Art is up to anyone`s interpretation. He deserves to be dissed.

My whine was more aimed towards people who were close to worshipping Buckethead, like LoofahBoy. Which either means I`m fail at understanding internet sarcasm, or LoofahBoy is really an idiot.

Probably the first one.

Odd music video...
Did anyone else see someone pi$$ing out their a$$?
FYI, Buckethead is signed on with Serj Tankian`s (From SOAD) label "Serjical Strike". And Serj did not want the record to be purely metal, or purely anything but an Arts label...and what I just heard, was art, and what I saw, was art. I`ll stick to SOAD and Disturbed though.

That`s not what is saying to, is it Pab?

The fact that he has the audacity to claim this isn`t music is what makes him so clearly ignorant.

Ah, you see Pabasa, it would be foolish to argue over something like that, IF Buckethead were a mere human. But even pondering that possibility is grounds for vaporization.

Nay, such dissenters must be eliminated; for buckethead, HE is an alien sent from the planet Foodcourtia to brainwash our minds, to blissfully follow their race when they invade in spaceships shaped like giant KFC buckets. You think scientology is bad? Wait till you see Bucketheadology... or something.

...yeah I`m an idiot. :-P

Wow, you guys are a bit too defensive about Buckethead, no?

I mean, I like pop music, but I sure as hell am not going to go shouting "HOW DARE YOU!!!!" the moment someone says "Natasha bedingfield sucks" or "TMBG makes stupid music".

Owen, thou shalt not disrespect the Buckethead. For Buckethead eats the flesh of those who disrespect the Buckethead.

He`s scary like that.

Owen, how dare YOU tell us what we can or cannot categorize as music. Music is an art form, and, like all art forms, it can be created in any effing way the artist wants...and it`s still music. If you don`t like it, that`s fine. But for you to discredit an artist (who, by the way, has talent beyond anything that you or i will probably ever know) is such a crime against everything that is beautiful and objective about music as an art form. Saying that music should only be peaceful and relaxing is like saying paintings should only be of flowers and puppy dogs...from one young person to another, i suggest that you try opening your mind a bit, and stop talking like a cantankerous 70 yr old man who cant understand why kids dye their hair or ride skateboards.

When did so called "bands" like this cross that line between obscene noise and music? Music IMO is supposed to me peaceful, relaxing or a nice little tune to dance to. This doesn`t count all this is, is noise. If you guys want to listen to noise go ahead but how dare you say this is music.

Buckethead is so insane, hahaha! And that`s probably why he doesn`t get many music videos made.

pahaha: Since you have no idea any background history of either artist involved, I`d shut up if I were you.

That was pretty crazy; Bosch was (is?) certainly a talented artist, but I`m more of an Escher-head-trip kinda guy. The music is OK.
