Please enjoy CÚT LỘN, a Vietnamese thrash metal band dressed like Pikachu

Hanoi is a pretty grey city. I’ve been there and can definitively say that it retains much of the character of its bland communist roots. That’s why a band like CÚT LỘN is so welcome.

In a nutshell, we have four guys dressed up like Pikachu (you know all about Pokémon, right?) who specialize thrash/punk crossover sound. They say that they write songs that sum up the tragedy and comedy of daily life in Vietnam.

Of course, you need a sample. And if you want to dig deeper, go here.
