Our second video for Latvian industrial band Augoten – “Par Zaali (All Becomes Grass).” You can find more information about this interesting band in this article from 4brecords dedicated to their album “Mutagen”.
Behold one of the greatest massacres in natural history – Japanese Giant Hornets (Vespa mandarinia japonica) (the world’s largest hornet) versus European Honey Bee (Apis mellifera) (our favorite honey producer),
The hornets often attack honey bee hives with the goal of obtaining the honey bee larvae. A single scout, sometimes two or three, will cautiously approach the nest, giving off pheromones which will lead the other hornets to the hive’s location. The hornets can devastate a colony of honey bees: a single hornet can kill as many as 40 honey bees per minute thanks to its large mandibles which can quickly strike and decapitate a bee. It takes only a few of these hornets a few hours to exterminate the population of a 30,000-member hive, leaving a trail of severed insect heads and limbs.
We were lucky enough to find the original documentary narration from which used the creators of this song – National Geographic’s “Hornets From Hell“, but we predominantly used footage from another great documentary – BBC’s Natural World episode “Buddha, Bees And The Gaint Hornet Queen”.
For the soundtrack to this massacare we used Audio remix of InsideInfo track “Honey Bee”. You can find it on their “Grow EP” which was released on 28th May 2012 on Viper Recordings.
Dolls and toys getting out of control and go mad and brutal.
Music used in this video:

2) Rosewater “Fasctrot”
Rosewater is the most recognized industrial band in Latvia who’s set new standart of sound quality for local industrial music. This circus-like tune while not being their style, it still does the trick for the video.

This time Yogzatot Studio created bootleg music video on one of the most famous dubstep artists in UK – Nero. Track “Choices” was released back in 2008, but this new version was featured on Nero’s latest album “Welcome Reality“.
Video created in less than five hours from our massive collection of footage from different documentary films (If I have more free time I try to compile a full list of all documentaries featured in this video, and in couple of previous videos).
Sealed behind heavy stainless steel doors, surrounded by concrete walls and being somewhere deeply underground is not an answer and escape from fears. Emergency situation is a battle for a life. For a life where every day will be emergency, be it even artificially created by a few without notice…
“Bunkergang” is a video created in collaboration with industrial music label “Sturm” and musicians from newly formed band “Autogen“. It represents our ongoing collaboration with local industrial sub-culture in Riga. Video material filmed by “Sturm” folks in real, still functional bunker. Song written by Kaspars Kalniņš from “Autogen” who is also one of the founders of former “Rosewater” – one of the most recognized industrial band in Latvia which set new quality standards and performed abroad as well.
Our team helped out with video editing, assembling all footage into one piece, laying out the “story” and adding some minor video effects.
