Independent Japanese animation collective, ONIONSKIN are back with yet another brilliantly innovative music video, marking their third collaborative outing with intense pop-orchestra, Vampillia.
Their previous Vampillia videos included hellish (although gorgeously animated) sequences featuring decapitation, face-melting, vomiting and exploding heads! So it should come as no surprise that this new video, accompanying the track Lilac (Bombs Jun Togawa), is equally horrifying and beautiful.
The superb animation depicts the flesh slowly tearing and bursting from the body of a drowning school girl, before the corpse is re-animated by worms infesting the skeletal remains. Interspersed with flashes of childhood memories, the short piece captures the final terrifyingly-painful moments of this young life.
