Kvelertak’s “Månelyst”

Back with some more death n’ roll, Kvelertak’s new video for “Månelyst” is an homage to all the schlocky horror tropes that we as metalheads hold so dear to our hearts. And that’s the thing about metal which people who don’t like metal usually don’t understand. We don’t get into extreme metal because we are gore-obsessed sociopaths, but because we are horror-movie-loving geeks who find the same escape in our music as we find in our movie selection. Horror and metal go hand-in-hand, always have, always will.

Kvelertak are playing on that in this video with allusions to all sorts of classic horror movies. You’ve got vampires! You’ve got gimps! You’ve got bloodied tools! You’ve got monsters in the woods! You’ve got blood and darkness and death and gore and it works so magically I want to hug it and whisper nice things in its ear.

Flying Lotus’ “Putty Boy Strut”

This is awesome. Not quite as terrifying as Cyriak’s normal work, but magnificent nonetheless.

Devourment’s “Parasitic Eruption”

This is both ridiculous and amazing. Will I ever get sick of absurdly over-the-top death metal? I really don’t think so.

Darwin Deez’s “You Can’t Be My Girl”

This is great.

Amon Tobin’s “4 Ton Mantis”

I might have listened to this album about 100 million times in college. It was (and is) perfect music for writing: lyricless, not too obtrusive, but still forward enough to block out other sounds, distractions, and thoughts. And the video is amazing. Stylish. Fitting. Unique (and I don’t use that word lightly). I seem to recall having a tiny 320×240 quicktime of it on an old 18gb hard drive. Ah, halcyon days.

Coldcut & Hexstatic’s “Natural Rhythm”

GET IT?! BECAUSE IT IS NATURE????

Actually, this is pretty cool. Conceptually, it reminds me of The Chemical Brothers video for “Star Guitar”. Enjoy.

Dying Fetus’ “Second Skin”

Because who doesn’t want to listen to Dying Fetus????

Royal Thunder’s “Blue”

Atlanta’s Royal Thunder continue the trend of Sabbath-inspired modern hard rock bands fronted by a female singer. You would think that at this point I’d start to get tired of bands like this, but I’m just not. Royal Thunder’s 2012 release CVI is awesome.

Check these guys out if you’re in the mood for some stoney, down-tempo rock.
