Brain Damage Meets Vibronics - "Sufferation"

Directed by French animator Wasaru, this music video for Sufferation represents a truly interesting attempt at narrating the horrors faced by a forgotten group of soldiers who participated in WWI, with 2014 marking the 100th anniversary of that terrible conflict. Taken from 'Empire Soldiers,' the LP is dedicated to narrating the forgotten stories of the Carribean, African and Indian soldiers who fell during the campaign.

Down to the lyrics, Sufferation offers us a harrowing look into the terror that Sikh soldiers (Dubbed the 'Black Lions' by their British comrades) faced in an attempt to bring peace to embattled Europe. A total of 75,000 Indian troops died during the course of the conflict.
