"Coming up with the concept for the music video for 'Contaminate' was quite simple. The subject matter of the song deals with impending doom of the apocalypse, radiation sickness, and the suffering that war brings about in general. We combined disturbing archival footage from atrocities committed in the last century with a live show we played at Saint Vitus, in Brooklyn, to create a visual aesthetic to match the bleak subject matter and overall feeling of despair that we attempted to create when we wrote this song."
Happy Hump Day Metal Day! Thanks to our friends at Prosthetic Records Cult checked out some brutal blackened death metal straight out of Brooklyn!
Contaminate is a brutal yet melodic track set against a visceral collection of atrocities interspersed with tour footage directed, edited and compiled by members of the black/death/doom metal outfit Mutilation Rites. This brutal track fits excellently with the visual element which is a grisly tableau indeed comprising of B&W film from the aftermath of the holocaust, WWII and the devastation caused by nuclear fallout. Check out what band member Dimmitt had to say about it then check out the brutal video for Contaminate below!
