RED FANG’S VIDEO FOR “WIRES” IS SO GOOD IT HAS EARNED ITS OWN POST
I’m working on a big “Cinemetal Round-Up” for today, because a bunch of notable artists have released new clips in the past forty-eight hours. But as I was watching — and uncontrollably grinning at — “Wires,” the new video from Red Fang, I thought to myself, “No. This is just too damn good to be lumped in with a bunch of other shit. People must see this. Attention must be paid.”
What a great fucking example of doing something awesome with what, I’m guessing at least, was not a lot of money. (If the video is to be believed, it cost less than $5,000. That may sound like a fair sum of cash, but in the filmmaking world, it’s practically nothing.) “Wires” isn’t the prettiest video you’ve ever seen, but it’s well shot, it’s well edited, and, clearly, a lot of thought went into its creation.
And the results are top notch. AND this the second the band and their collaborator, Whitey McConnaughy, have pulled off such a feat — their video for “Prehistoric Dog” is also fucking incredible. These clips are funny as hell and metal as fuck. I almost don’t wanna talk too much about it because I don’t wanna give anything away. But I implore you to check it out. It’s not currently embeddable, but you can watch it by clicking on the screen cap below (and God help you if the screen cap doesn’t make you wanna watch the video right now.)
Fucking AWESOME, right?
“Wires” comes off of Red Fang’s latest, Murder the Mountains, which is out now on Relapse. The band will spend their summer on the Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival; get dates here.
