Avant-garde musician Tom Waits has released a video for “Hell Broke Luce”, which comes from his 2011 album Bad As Me. The video features some very eerie and horror-inspired images, from women singing in body bags to shark submarines and more. The video was directed by Matt Mahurin and can be seen below.

Waits states, “Matt Mahurin has created an apocalyptic war dream to accompany the song “Hell Broke Luce.” Kathleen [Brennan] and I envisioned it as an enlightened drill sergeant yelling the hard truths of war to a brand new batch of recruits. The video grew from the gnawing image of a soldier pulling his home, through a battlefield, at the end of a rope.” [source]
