“The Spider in the Experimental Bike” — Anfo Merc

Anfo Merc provide no background info, only B-movie tribal chants and finger-blistering thrash riffs, before throwing us into the middle of the story, finding biker and spider in the midst of their quest to burn rubber for justice. Also, gargoyles are involved somehow. The perfect theme song for one of those damn-near incomprehensible Japanese cartoons, the kind you wish would halt the seizure-inducing action for a moment and kindly explain what the hell’s going on. Fat chance. This arachnid answers to none short of the Web Slinger in the sky: “Only to his god could the spider himself ever yield.”
