HEAVEN SHALL BURN’S “COMBAT” VIDEO USES ANIMATION AS A WEAPON
Heaven Shall Burn’s new video, for the song “Combat,” is like Slayer’s video for “World Painted Blood” in that it uses stylized animation (and lots of the color red) to convey the horrors of war, and not at all like Slayer’s video for “World Painted Blood” in that it doesn’t completely suck hairy gorilla nuts. And, once again, proves my point: that bands should stay the fuck out of their music videos.
“Combat” comes off Heaven Shall Burn’s latest, Invictus, which is out now on Century. If you haven’t done so already, check out my interview with guitarist Maik Weichert, in which we discuss, among other things, the violent nature of songs like “Combat.”
