There is a scene in Park Chan-wook's Oldboy in which the film's protagonist is clubbing the absolute fuck out of an entire hallway full of assailants with seeming ease, I thought of Behaviour when I first saw this scene. Incandescent energy that warms clearly through the fuzziness and makes you want to bop, or in my father's case, down a 40 and beat the hell out of my kid brother. If I had my own action movie, I would enter on screen within a murder of crows to Wide-Eyed, face painted a Brandon Lee white and bleeding from the eyes, nothing would make me feel more bad-ass. Have you ever gapped a 6-set on your pussy little skateboard? Garbage, Behaviour has a sound that will bust the sexual organs right out of those amateur skateboarding asses, they make Canned Heat look like Cold Beans, Behaviour powers me up on a rainy day when all I can envision is my father whooping the everliving shit out of my close relatives.
Behaviour is like waking up on a really lovely morning, getting punched real hard right in the forehead and not even minding it, then just going ahead and killing the day. It's power up music, if this were in Mega Man, Dr. Wily would have had his shit blasted by the end of the first god damn level, you don't need any Axe Man or Ice Man or Flame Man or Man Man when Behaviour is your soundtrack. In fact, I wish I could give Dr. Wily the track Bones so he could power-up and whoop Mega Man's ass for once, because this is a real psyche-up, fuck-up Mega Man ballad right here, and isn't that the true value of music? Can I kill Mega Man to this?
The answer, if you're wondering, is yes, you can kill Mega Man to this, you just need some imagination and a game where you can play as not-Mega Man against Mega Man. The technical skill presented throughout the band is enough to blow your fucking head off, but Behaviour is so cleanly mixed and presented it makes this blow-your-fucking-head-off intensity a daily indulgence, they’re not like other heavy bands in that they are immensely listenable for people who aren't even interested in the heavier side of music. It is simply a well constructed, well produced experience that also makes me want to choreograph a really cool one-shot Korean-inspired fight scene to it.
