Hypnotising VR music video puts the viewer in the midst of an animated apocalypse, where demonic skeletons, manic giants and electronic music herald the end of the modern world.

After the virtual reality animation SURGE, artist Arjan van Meerten and studio House of Secrets again joined hands. In their VR music video APEX, this time they take the viewer to an alternative reality where a procession of demons from Japanese folklore heralds the end of the modern world. Incorporating dark computer animations and electronic music, Van Meerten conjures up an apocalyptic universe where demonic skeletons and manic giants pass by burning ruins.
