MORBID ANGEL’S “EXISTO VULGORÉ” VIDEO: LIKE THE ARTIST, ONLY WITH BAD MUSIC
Terrorizer has premiered Morbid Angel’s video “Existo Vulgoré,” one of the less irritating songs off of the band’s disastrous Illud Divinum Insanus release. (I say “less irritating” because at least it doesn’t sound like a bad Marilyn Manson rip-off — it’s just not-particularly-noteworthy death metal.) The conceit is that the video is an old-timey silent film, only the conceit makes no sense, because there’s David Vincent singing along with the music — which, y’know, would never happen in a silent film.
Of course, there have been other metal videos made to look silent films, but I think those usually utilize the music only as a non-synch soundtrack, which I think is an acceptable cheat.
It’s also possible I’m just being too hard on Morbid Angel, although, in all fairness, they totally deserve it.
I keep telling myself I’m gonna do a review of Morbid Angel’s incredibly bad Illud Divinum Insanus-remix album, but the fucking thing is three hours long (!!!) and really, really hard to sit through… let alone sit through multiple times, as would be a requirement to write a proper review. I’ll keep trying, though.
