Aryeh Nirenberg has created an amazing video, which lets you feel the rotation of the earth:

Wow, what a ride this is. At times, I scratch my head wondering "what the heck did they want with this?". But mostly, virtuosic saxophone, galloping guitar, furious drums make you want their 13 minute long track to last even longer. Similar to progressive or post rock, all tra
