This video has been out a while as was the killer album Surgical Steel. It made my #2 album of the year in 2013 and it’s still stimulating that mass of gel and tissue between my ears. I am not one to normally notice when videos are released. I am normally asleep at the wheel when it comes to videos. The forums of the world do a great job posting then when they come out, but I still miss them…to include this gem, Unfit for Human Consumption. Yes, today is my first viewing and probably is for some of you too. I can’t be the only one missing out right?
I like the subtle close-ups of the instruments (both medical instruments and the ones the band plays). I like when the focus is not directly on the band, but other imagery. Though some of the video is a bit cheesy toward the end, I still think that the simple things make for cool videos. See for yourself and have a great weekend!
Before I post the SOTD, I want to say welcome to our new metal brother, atleastimhousebroken. I know he will do great things for our humble blog. It is always awesome to meet someone who not only has the same interests, but also is not shy about expressing themselves. Welcome to the team, sir.
Today’s SOTD is “R**k the Vote” by Carcass, from the album Swansong.
I only own two Carcass albums, Swansong and Heartwork. And I have to say, the difference between these two albums is staggering. When Michael Amott left Carcass, their sound changed dramatically. That being said, both albums kick serious ass. I can hear a more groove-grind feel with the Swansong album, while Heartwork is a little more death-thrash.
I chose this song because I like the intro to the song. The guitar part throughout is great, and the whole song is pretty straightforward. I have come to realize that I am very partial to groove-metal songs and artists, which may be why I prefer the Swansong album over Heartwork.
