Hail To The King That Never Was

The King That Never Was (2011 - Alternate Reality)

King Arthur and Robin Hood (2002 - Brendon Small)

Now I'm not implying that the former is a remake of the latter... but that's only because I don't think I need to. Having watched the whole of Alternate Reality's premier video I can't tell if I want to suck on the loaded end of a shotgun The Hills Have Eyes remake style or send these guys a cashier's check for every cent I have.

There's only two possibilities I can come to: They're either brilliant satirists who have created the ultimate piece of Wizardcore Metal strictly for the lulz, or they're the first recorded example of walking, rocking, sentient brain tumors and actually think this is the single greatest thing ever.

Keep in mind that I'm the asshole who just spent ten bucks on the new sequel to Welcome to my Nightmare and wasn't sure what a Lady Gaga was until about a year ago, so I'm probably not the best guy to judge anyone's musical taste - but it bothers me slightly that I'm not immediately sure if these guys are just fucking with us or not. I guess The Beastie Boys made a career out of their satire being misconstrued as earnest hip-hop, so maybe these goofballs are on to something here?
