Bloody-Disgusting is excited to bring you the exclusive music video premiere for Product Of Hate‘s “The Unholy Manipulator”, which stars none other than Hellraiser’s Ashley Laurence! The video is a short film, much of it taking place in the imagination of the lead singer as he works his day job. But what a twisted and evil imagination it is! Check out the video below!
The song comes from the band’s 2010 album The Unholy Manipulator (iTunes). Product Of Hate will also be opening up for Lamb of God on Nov. 9th at The Rave in Milwaukee, WI.
Lead guitarist Geno Rathbone states, “Working with Robert Kurtzman was a huge honor for all of us, given his enormous body of work that we practically grew up on. As a band from Southeastern Wisconsin, suffice to say there’s been more than a few nights spent watching plenty of horror movies over the years, many of which Bob has contributed to. He’s assembled an incredible crew at Precinct 13 Entertainment/Creature Corps, and being able to watch them work was really something special. We wanted to create a throwback music video, but more of a short film or longform piece that could be fun for both the metal and horror communities. Prior to shooting, our producer, Scott Licina really pulled the project together, and it was through him that Ashley Laurence became involved. To have such an iconic figure in the horror genre become the face of our short film was something completely unexpected. A few tweaks to the overall story were tailored to Ashley as she appears as herself on DVD cases in the ‘real world’ sequences, and as those boxes and posters state on their tagline – ‘Ashley Laurence is The Unholy Manipulator’ when we enter the fantasy world. In the end, she did a hell of a job kicking some ass on-screen, and looked great while doing it. The whole thing was shot over the course of three chilly days near Kurtzman’s home base in Crestline and Galion, Ohio under the direction of our friend, James Zahn, who insisted on having a tree shredder involved.”
Product Of Hate recently released two new singles, “Revolution of Destruction” and “A Well Deserved Death.” The band will be returning to the studio this winter to record a trio of new tracks. Product Of Hate is currently unsigned and has been actively seeking a label partner for the release of their planned 2013 full-length, after which, the band would like to hit the road and tour indefinitely.
