Exclusive Cinemetal Premiere: Bangladeafy’s “Say It with Your Chest” – MetalSucks

“…like an acid nightmare amalgamation of a-ha’s famous “Take On Me” video, Tron, a toy commercial, and that messed-up shit they show Malcolm McDowell in A Clockwork Orange to make him stop being evil. And we’re not even sure that…
