One of the albums I most agonized over not being able to squeeze onto my year end list in 2011 was Landmine Marathon’s Gallows, a truly brutal piece of work that may very well be the death-grind quintet’s best yet. And the fact that the release didn’t end up on the list was really one of those semi-arbitrary decisions that just goes to show that these lists are more or less complete bullshit; Gallows could easily have been somewhere in my ranking, and I’d be just as happy and unhappy with that ranking as I am now.

All of which is my long-winded way of asking you to check out the band’s new video for the Gallows track “Beaten and Left Blind.” If you don’t already know and love Landmine Marathon, this is a great chance for you to get to know them at their most evil; and if you do already well know them, well, watch it anyway, ’cause it’s like a fucked-up Alice in Wonderland or something, where Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dum are these two goth chicks, and there’s blood and gore and stuff.


Gallows is out now on Prosthetic.
