When we bring it heavy, you better believe we bring it heavy! Bloody-Disgusting is excited to bring you the exclusive music video premiere for “Red All Over” from Murder Construct! The song comes from the band’s debut album Results, which came out last week via Relapse Records. The video, directed by Mitch Massie, can be seen below along with exclusive quotes.
Murder Construct is a veritable metal supergroup comprised of Travis Ryan (Cattle Decapitation), Leon del Muerte (ex-Exhumed, ex-D.I.S., ex-Intronaut, ex-Impaled, ex-Phobia), Kevin Fetus (Watch Me Burn, Fetus Eaters), Caleb Schneider (Bad Acid Trip) and Danny Walker (Intronaut, Exhumed, ex-Jesu, ex-Uphill Battle).
Leon Del Muerte (Guitar): “If only the minds behind the music were half as creative as the one behind the video… Still, we’ve been extremely fortunate to procure the talents of Mr. Massie while he’s still available to work with shlubs like ourselves. This video blows my mind every time I’ve watched it, and that’s probably getting into the tens of thousands of views at this point. Every time I see it, I find some new thread that I hadn’t noticed before. That’s pretty nuts considering the video is 2:09 long. Simultaneously terrifying and artful while being completely original. I haven’t seen a video this good since the last Mitch Massie video I saw, haha!”
Travis Ryan (Vocals): “The barren desert that is metal music videos could learn a thing or two from Mitch Massie. That oasis up ahead of stagnation comprised of dilapidated warehouses, train tracks and weakly thought out storyline scenarios will only poison the metal video realm. Mitch Massie is a goddamned diamond in this wasteland. Our new video “Red All Over” is another great piece of art from one of video’s best kept secrets.”
Mitch Massie (Director): “Every idea came from their amazing tune and badass album. Their music is concentrated power and violence (in my mind at least). The band name itself became the style of the video; the construction of murder -deconstructed. “Red All Over” became a character that was birthed by the blood of patriots and tyrants, perpetrators and victims. It’s really just the themes and brutality they have made musically but expressed visually. They did all the leg work while I just analyzed and interpreted. This video was done practically. I’m not an animator. It was all a matter of problem solving to get the specifics. The biggest problem to get around was that my camera mysteriously shattered when I was shooting their performance footage in LA, so I’m just happy I was able to complete this f*cker with a broken camera.”
