BRAIN DRILL BLUDGEON BRAINS, FACES, TREES IN NEW VIDEO
I’m on a big death metal kick lately. Old school, brutal, tech-death, progressive death, it don’t matter — if it’s dark, groovy and growly I’m diggin’ it (unless it’s deathcore… but even a track like Suicide Silence’s “Wake Up” can be a winner).
Today’s piece de resistance is a tech-death entry courtesy of the recently re-jiggered Santa Cruz, CA quarter Brain Drill. Brain Drill just released a video for the track “Beyond Bludgeoned” — a Class-A death metal song name if ever there was one — over at Bloody Disgusting. It’s full of lotsa “weedily weedily” shred and beyond bludgeoningly brutal blasts of riffs; it’s exactly what you want Brain Drill to be. The video was filmed in the San Jaoquin valley of California. I just had the opportunity to drive through this area on tour with Revocation and The Binary Code, and literally hundreds of miles of rich orchards of all kinds have been allowed to die en masse due to a bizarre piece of water re-routing legislation. It was like passing through an area completely devoid of life from nuclear fallout. Fucking freaky, but the perfect place for some brutal death metal.
The track comes from their forthcoming album Quantum Catastrophe, which Metal Blade will release on May 11th.
