Cinemetal Round-Up: New Videos from Hate, Spiritual Beggars, Jungle Rot, Thick As Blood, and Hammer Fight
I’m going to put about as much effort into this introduction as Kerry King put into explaining his side of the Dave Lombardo debacle.
We kick things off today with Hate’s new clip for “Alchemy of Blood.” It would be pretty cool to see someone bleeding gold, but alas, this video is in black and white, and isn’t really anything to write (a blog) home about. That being said, I like Hate (I couldn’t think of any to say that wasn’t gonna sound silly — my apologies), and I like this song, so I’m gonna go ahead and give it a thumbs up. You’ll laugh, you’ll cry, you’ll hate.
Moving right along… The Deciblog debuted the new Spiritual Beggars video, “Wise Serpent,” and pretty much everything I just wrote about the Hate video applies here, except replace “this video is in black and white” with “this video is appropriately druggy,” and take out the part about bleeding gold. I guess I could have just cut-and-pasted all that for you but it’s not like you wouldn’t have noticed anyway.
Next up is Jungle Rot’s video for “Blind Devotion,” and oh hey I’m strting to notice a theme with today’s videos. But if you really get off on watching dudes sit around the studio, well, get ready to jizz all over your monitor, friend.
Thick as Blood’s video for “Diente Por Diente” is really anything special, either, and unlike the above bands, I don’t really like Thick as Blood anyway. That being said, this is actually one of the less-terrible Hatebreed rip-offs I’ve heard in some time. The breakdown is fun enough, and I like that I now know how to say “tooth for tooth” in Spanish, so there ya go.
And we conclude today’s “Cinemetal Round-Up” Hammer Fight’s “A Corpse is a Corpse (of Course of Course).” The track has a great name, and the video was partially filmed at Jay and Silent Bob’s Secret Stash in New Jersey, which should thrill Kevin Smith’s final five remaining fans, assuming those fans happen to enjoy Hammer Fight. Unfortunately, the video makes Clerks look like it cost $200 million to produce, so that’s not so hot. The song, which sounds as much like Motörhead as anything Motörhead have ever recorded, ain’t bad, though.
