This is a Listener Support video for our release, Tidal Surge.
Not only a mere backdrop, this animation took its place here for several reasons including it's context and it's projection over the song's lyrical content.

About The song:
TIDAL SURGE - STR 2016 (2/3):
The tide rose and this time it will leave a notable track, wherever it hits. Tidal Surge - preceded by the single track release “Cordite” - is a new milestone the Hellhound Syndicate sets on their path, endorsing the new found power and sense of completion brought up by it’s new assembly. The hell dogs, right after a brief studio immersion time, raise the bar unleashing in 2016 this wave of impact, thoroughly followed by many others.

About this Video:
After studying at the Institute of Industrial Arts and the Marionette Faculty of the Prague Academy of Fine Arts in the 1950s, Jan Svankmajer started working as a theatre director, chiefly in association with the Theatre of Masks and the Black Theatre. He first experimented with film-making after becoming involved with the mixed-media productions of Prague's Lanterna Magika Theatre. He began making short films in 1964, and continued working in the same medium for over twenty years, when he finally achieved his long-held ambition to make a feature film based on Lewis Carroll's Alice in Wonderland (A Viagem de Alice (1987)). He has also exhibited his drawings, collages and 'tactile sculptures', many of which were produced in the mid-1970s, when he was temporarily banned from film-making by the Czech authorities. He has been a card-carrying member of the Prague Surrealist Group since 1969.

We do not hold rights over the animation showcased here and in fact our intention is to pay a small tribute to an artist whose work
still resonate in ours today as a major influence.The animation was mildly edited to fit the song's timecode properly.

About the animation:
"Punch and Judy (1966): Two puppets, Punch and Joey, do battle to the death over the custody of a live guinea pig. So this is pretty much as badass as it can get.
