Above is the music video for Susumu Hirasawa’s song TOWN-0 PHASE-5 which features everything from robo-Hirasawa to creepy dancing skeletons. The song is from the 1998 album Technique of Relief. Although I feel as though the music videos for most of Hirasawa’s songs could be alot more interesting than the heavy use of mid-range computer graphics, the images that are created are signature Hirasawa. The album was recently re-released and featured the addition of all the tracks from the BERSERK -FORCES- single that was released in 1997. Somehow, I have to get this CD! Below is the information f rom Hirasawa’s NO ROOM website about the album re-release.
