For those of you who don't recognize this photograph: It's from a spectacular split-second moment during a recent, ultra-high energy rock concert. (More below...)

Rush - Far Cry Pyrotechnic

Rush: Pyrotechnics for "Far Cry" - Click PLAY to hear this special effect live, in concert.

What you're seeing and hearing is an explosive pyrotechnic -- a huge blast of synchronized fireworks. Pretty loud, even for a rock concert. The elaborate blast pattern is programmed to fire precisely at a specific moment in one particular song. The special-effect is triggered immediately following these lyrics:

It's a far cry from the world we thought we'd inherit
It's a far cry from the way we thought we'd share it
You can almost feel the current flowing
You can almost see the circuits blowing
