The last time I heard the name Rat Skates (birthname: Lee Kundrat) was when he released the fun, if not under-produced, documentary on thrash, Get Thrashed. What it lacked in production budget, it made up for in fun interviews with all the people involved in the early thrash scene, including members of Metallica, Megadeth, Slayer and Testament.
RatSkates considers himself a film maker and produced this odd (and that's really underselling it) video about global warming and dictators. Be warned, some of the imagery is from WWII and is really graphic:
I cannot for the life of me make any sense of what this video is trying to accomplish. The description on the Youtube page reads "Do we have the power to survive what we can't predict? Or can we?" Uhh, what? Is he saying if we go to church then these crazy leaders will go away? Don't all these dictators use religion as the reasoning for their diabolical ways?! Is he really saying we can't predict climate change when scientists have been warning us about it for years?!
But it gets worse! My buddy, Axl Rosenberg of MetalSucks, tracked down two more videos from this auteur and wow:
Needless to say, I can understand why Overkill parted ways with him.
