All this time, I'd thought that there'd nothing more satisfying than the close-up carnage of the Gears of War franchise's signature weapon, Surely, nothing could surpass ripping a Locust or Lambent attacher to shreds with the chainsaw bayonet of the Lancer gun. But there is such a thing, friends.

This YouTube video shows artist Griffon Ramsey giving a piece of wood the business and transforming it into the Crimson Omen, which is probably what trees see before they die. With the sad-rock soundtrack, tattoos and overalls—not to mention the crafty use of fire—the whole thing makes Ramsey looks like she just stepped off of Sera. In fact, I've decided that if there's any art on the war-torn Gears planet, it's all made with chainsaws. And fire.
