Though rendered less retro-flashy as their music video for "Chains", Brooklyn duo Gatekeeper's latest audio/video pairing, for the "Serpent" track, which was also realized by Thunder Horse Video, has its own kind of nostalgic vibes from not too long ago. The footage is certainly a sort of tongue-in-cheek homage to the kinds of low-budget b-movies likely to be found in the old Sci Fi Channel original films series—complete with the slight blur of a greased lens, crappy special effects, and camera work of a less-than-inspired production. And yet, somehow, the dark, driving sounds of Gatekeeper's proto-industrial tune give the imagery some sort of after-the-fact credence, as the vibes offered by both the video and song exist on the same creative plane.
