Heavy metal band Penunggu release debut music video [Malaysia].
“Hail from Selangor, a heavy metal band known for their creativity in lyrics and visualization PENUNGGU had just released their first single and it’s safe to say that it delivers to the band reputation! While the song mostly agreed to be inspired much from the sound of the 80s heavy metal and hard rock vibe, the music video however completely flipped the expectations and delivered the last thing to be expected from a heavy metal band; whatsmore this is their first ever official music video which is it is very FUNNY, COMICAL and DEPTH IN MEANING. To avoid spoilers, watch the full videos here before we proceed to uncovering the videos depth. For those who dont understand malay, worry not! The band is kind enough to include English subtitle for the song’s lyric for your eye to feast and for your soul and brain to digest.
The music video despite it’s nature of being comical and entertaining, it uncovers the tragic truth of being a heavy/extremed genre music lover who dress apart of their genre (mostly with skulls and bones as motives) to be stereotyped or to be condemn upon first sight through public skeptic eyes (hence the song title Budak Rangka translated Skeleton Boy?). The music video also featured many characters who the main character meet along the way starring the band members themselves with add-on the comical aspects of the whole video.”
