Undeath Get Their “Head Splattered In Seven Ways” In Gory Video for New Track


Damn, son, we were huge fans of Undeath even before former Cannibal Corpse vocalist Chris Barnes got frumpy about them, and they’re working hard at keeping us fans. First, the band dropped the macabre video for their track “Rise from the Grave;” now, they’ve released a new video for the song “Head Splattered Seven Ways,” and while that one had a Lucio Fulci vibe to it, this one’s pure Herschell Gordon Lewis!

As you’ll see in the footage below, the video for “Head Splattered Seven Ways” takes place in a meat locker where a masked butcher is chopping up his quarry. Spoiler: long pig’s on the menu tonight. While the story might sound simple, the real pleasure comes from watching the band take some fake-blood money shots to the face (frontman Alex Jones really gets a Veruca James’ worth). It’s a cool death metal video from a band we just love to listen to.

Describing the single, guitarist Kyle Beam said the following:

“‘Head Splattered in Seven Ways’ is all about the number 7: There’s seven syllables in the title, it’s the seventh song on the record, the verse and chorus are in seven AND the bridge section repeats seven times. As if that wasn’t crazy enough, lyrically the song is centered around a deranged interrogation scene with a murderer that possesses psionic powers – the kind capable of making heads explode and splatter in…well, you do the math. Simply put, this is an odd-time death metal banger that you’ll snap your neck trying to headbang along to. Enjoy!”

What a guitarist-ass description. Check out the video below. Undeath’s It’s Time… To Rise From The Grave comes out via Prosthetic Records on April 22nd and is available for preorder. Catch Undeath on one of their upcoming dates with Dying Fetus:
