If this is what a 'rhythm violence' game looks like, I'm all about them

While watching this trailer for THUMPER, a self-described rhythm violence game from current Harmonix artist Brian Gibson and former lead programmer Marc Flury, I didn't want to blink. I also let out a confused "what?" followed by an even more puzzled "what the fuck?!" during the clip.

The protagonist is a space beetle barreling down hallucinatory tracks, and I get that scraping against walls is a bad idea -- but otherwise I'm not comprehending what we're looking at here.

On the website, that devilish beast shown toward the end is described as "an insane giant head from the future." The game is headed to "whatever platforms make sense," so, probably PC.
