“KINGDOM OF TYRANTS”: THE NEW CATTLE DECAPITATION VIDEO IS INSANE
…in no small part because it’s not really a video so much as it is a short film — the song’s running time is only 4:51, but the clip is actually nine minutes long. Amazingly enough, this ambitious attempt at making something which will stand out a little more than the average video mostly works; Like the cover art for Cattle Decap’s new album, Monolith of Inhumanity, there are overt references to Stanley Kubrick’s 2001: A Space Odyssey, but director Mitch Massie’s vision is considerably more lo-fi and nightmarish than Kubrick’s ever was.
The video isn’t embeddable, but you can watch it at Bloody Disgusting by clicking the screen cap below. Cattle Decapitation’s excellent Monolith of Inhumanity comes out May 8 on Metal Blade. The band just kicked off a tour with Origin, Decrepit Birth, Aborted, Rings of Saturn, and Battlecross; get dates here.
