I became acquainted with the LA medieval/synth band My Barbarian a couple years ago, although I don't remember how or by whom. They really bring up some conflicting emotions in me, and I think that by watching the videos below you will understand why. I will admit that I kinda dig the music, although it also awakens my inner Pantera fan and makes me want to punch faces.
Part of me wants to like them for the whole LARPer/nerd aspect, but another part of me is like, "Fuck you, hipster. American Apparel called and they want their models back."
