Pointless video post - ‘Тот, Кто Стрелял’ by Fat Monsters

Fat Monsters were a lucky find on my part; I stumbled on them by accident on YouTube. A straight-up thrash metal band with better-than-decent cookie-monster vocals, they mostly sing about modern warfare and how much it sucks (at least, that’s how a lot of the English-language lyrics read on The History of Human Errors); they also seem to be anti-fascist, anti-imperialist and anti-neoliberal - all pluses in my book! The band sings some songs in English and others in Russian and Ukrainian, but this is apparently a new stylistic choice. This song comes from their all-Russian 2008 album Останови Террор (Stop the Terror); the name translates as ‘Who Shot’, and it illustrates the band’s talents for both slow, melodic, melancholic passages and for sheer slaying aggression. Enjoy!
