Mordred was never even good enough to be at the top of the list of terribly contrived third-rate thrash metal bands. Much like Nocturnus, the guys in Mordred apparently thought that by having a DJ (or in Nocturnus' case a keyboard player) they were, in a sense, splitting a musical atom. Just listen to them talk in great detail about the science of metal and its nomenclature. It's absolutely amazing.
Also note that they seem to take great pride in the fact that they listen to black artists (apparently an unbelievable feat, based on how proud they are), but give themselves away by listing Living Colour only due to their skin color. I bet you these guys are angrily mumbling to themselves today that there would have never been a Limp Bizkit without their musical advancements.
Four other things I love about this video:
1. The drummer referring to himself and Mordred in the third person. Ugh.
2. The bass player breaking down what musical style they now play. "Heavy funk"
3. How the DJ is nowhere to be seen during this interview. The poor dude was a stage prop.
4. The lyrics to the song you hear a bit of in this video, "Everyday's a Holiday," were about how they don't work and they're hella cool because they're in a band. I would just love to blast that song to these dudes now as they walk to work at a distribution warehouse at 4am.
I like to sleep all day
Go to work? Ha, no way
I see you work so hard
To pay your credit card
I see you bust your ass
To buy a new bus pass
So you can go to work
Like every other jerk
Every day's a holiday - Do you know what I mean?
Every day's a holiday
Don't you wish you were just like me?
