Extreme metal legends Cattle Decapitation are back again with the second video off their upcoming album Monolith Of Inhumanity. This new video is for a song called “Kingdom Of Tyrants”, and can be found right here.
The clip was produced by Mitch Massie and is really more of a 9 minute long short film than a traditional music video. Singer Travis Ryan recently commented:
“We’ve kicked around the idea of doing a mini-film out of a song that has a big intro for years now and when I saw Mitch Massie’s work on one of our friends’ videos, we knew he would be the one to pull it off. We had no idea he would bring it to a level such as this though. The ‘Kingdom of Tyrants’ mini-film completely leveled our expectations. Having given him director styles I would have liked to see used such as Matthew Barney, Harmony Korine and Ridley Scott, I still never assumed we would have received something so in line with what we had in mind for this as what you see here with this video. It’s disturbing. It’s thought-provoking. Its 100% Cattle Decapitation and in the direction we’ve been heading. Massie is the man and this is by far the best video we’ve ever had the pleasure to be a part of.”
Monolith Of Inhumanity will be the follow up to 2009′s The Harvest Floor and is scheduled for a May 8, 2012 release on Metal Blade. For more info on the album, including the band’s exclusive Garbage Pail Kids collaboration, click here.
