For Your Thursday Thrashing Pleasure: Darstar's "Trapdoor Spider"

This is DFW quintet Darstar's first video, for "Trapdoor Spider," off last year's Tiny Darkness. The song's got a great, heavy riff, and though the video uses a pretty basic band-in-a-warehouse-concept, that riff matches the random couch destruction nicely.

I'd like to see more videos of bands destroying things. No more pensive, naval-gazing "narrative" mini-docs that try to unravel life's artistic mysteries. Just take a local band to the Anger Room and film it.
