Oakland string metal maniacs Judgement Day premiered today a video for “Cobra Strike,” the first single off the band’s upcoming album Peacocks/Pink Monsters, out on April 13, 2010. The hyperkinetic video introduces the video game “Violin Hero,” and then colorfully shows how the game leads to societal downfall. You can read the band’s story behind the video and its production at their web site.

Judgement Day co-headlines a Noise Pop 2010 show on Friday, February 26th (9pm, $12) at Bottom of the Hill, with Scissors for Lefty, Ghost and the City and Glaciers.
