Black Tusk’s NSFW New Video is Filled with Suggestive Mysticism, Green Boobs

0

You never fully know what you’re going to get with Black Tusk. One moment they’re churning their way through some riffy thrash, the next they’re spinning oddly-poetic folkish melodies. It’s hard to fit them into any sort of genre, which can be both cool and at time frustrating. What the Hell do I call it?!

Similarly, the band’s latest video for “God’s on Vacation” makes me wonder what the Hell is going on with its apple-eating hunter and its nude female Jabba’s guard. I mean, is this supposed be an example of temptation born in nature, a la The Witch? Is this green boar woman supposed to be an expression of Black Tusk’s inner soul (even though her tusk-like horns aren’t black)? I’m confused, but compelled to watch it again, which I guess is the point of any great music video.

Oh, and for the record, the video is a soft NSFW but is definitely NSFW. Boobs, bare butt, and some minor gore. Any modern metal fan won’t be scandalized, but your boss might.

Anyway, watch “God’s on Vacation” below. Black Tusk’s latest, Pillars of Ashis out now on Relapse.
