Better Than Floyd & Oz, Achim Reichel Meets Heavy Metal!

WHOA! Whoa. Whoa… Whoa.

So we made a discovery. Not like how good cottage cheese actually goes with papaya (truly, it does); but more like how good pornography goes with the volume turned up. No, we’re not that awful, just referring to combined stimuli banging on the senses. (Okay, so we are bad.)

At any rate, every high-schooler at one point or another probably has done or did the ol’ press play on The Wizard Of Oz film (with no sound) and Pink Floyd “Dark Side Of The Moon” album (cranked up) at the same time, thereafter straining, most likely easily and gladly enough with a good buzz cruising, to convince themselves that the audio and visual presentations coincide in some uncanny and unplanned copacetic harmony, only to later reflect upon the entire ordeal having largely hung by the thread of the fact that (depending on which “roar of the MGM lion” you press play for the movie) it really just comes down to the cash machine opening of the album track “Money” cha-chinging right when the flick jolts from black and white to color. Beautiful. Sincerely. However… We fortuitously stumbled upon something that makes it all seem like kindergarten camp at your local pond compared to overnighting in the Himalayas.

Enter: the animated film Heavy Metal (1981) meets AR & The Machines “The Green Journey (1971).”

Can’t tell you which lion roar, can’t remember any lions… But the synchronicity is jaw-dropping. Every tone, mood, motion, shift, feeling – every nuance of every moment just fit, between the two. We think. It happened by intended chance with no expectation for outcome other than colorful visual accompaniment to a mind-blowing musical progenitor. So try for yourself, and maybe let us know if we’re cookoo… We’ve never heard of this being done prior.

Cheers.
