While chatting with Carol today, I needed to find an example of the synchronized death metal hair swirl and this was the first band I thought of. And, lo and behold, they didn’t let me down at all. Within 15 seconds of starting it, I had my hair swirling. Then I let the video play and it was so fucking awesome I had to share it with you. The song comes off Tomb of the Mutilated, a Barnes-era Cannibal Corpse record, but I think Corpsegrinder does a fantastic job with it here.
And, why, you ask, did I need an example of the swirl? Well, I was commenting that Willow Smith’s “Whip My Hair” is the least metal song I’d ever heard about headbanging. She said it was hair whipping. And I said that it looked like the death metal swirl to me, so I found some proof. I’m not even going to link the Willow Smith song here. It’s vile. Enjoy the Cannibal Corpse instead.
