Let me define the NSFW category real quick: breast. Loads of ‘em. Also a ton of sexual content.
NOW THEN! On this edition of Twisted Music Video Of The Week, we’re taking a look at the video for Technology from Destructo. The video tells the tale of a man who thinks he is in love with a woman only to find out that she is a robot. After that, all bets are off.
It’s actually quite the tragic story on top of being rather twisted. I couldn’t help but feel bad for the female robot, even though I knew that was what the video was trying to make me feel. It’s definitely worth your time once you get home or are in a safe place to check it out. READ MORE
Korn has released Chaos Lives In Everything, which comes off their latest album The Path of Totality, as their latest music video. The video sets up the conflict when a skateboarder slams into a businessman who refuses to let it go. A chase ensues and suddenly the businessman is confronted by not one, not two, but SIX skateboarders. After a bit of roughhousing, the businessman grabs a skateboard, tries to break it on the ground, and then suddenly is skating with the kids. End video.
First of all, that makes absolutely no sense. What is that supposed to even mean? That businessmen need to lighten up? How about a compromise Korn? How about the businessman eases back a bit, maybe loosens his tie, IF those skateboarders stop acting like complete dicks. What say you? Think that can be worked out?
Oh, and I can’t tell you how sick I am of seeing videos use the whole “we’re gonna show this at normal speed BAM! SLOW MOTION! Okay, back into normal speeBAM! SLOW MOTION AGAIN! Now quick! Normal-SLOW-norm-SLOW-nor-SLOW SLOW SLOW!!!” Seriously, stop now.
Congratulations are in order! Big supporters of Bloody-Disgusting and all around awesome guys, Twitch The Ripper have announced that they are now officially signed to Metropolis Records! This is an awesome move for the guys as Metropolis is definitely the perfect place for their sound.
On top of that, they have announced a spring US tour, so definitely make sure you check them out. All tour dates are after the jump.
No, this doesn’t relate to horror. No, this isn’t rock or metal. You know what this is? Sheer awesomeness. Yup, that’s the only way to describe it. What you are (hopefully) about to watch is Japanese dance group Wrecking Crew Orchestra doing a TRON light dance routine that is set to some intense electronic/dubstep and is just way too cool for me not to share. So, enough hyping it up. Check out the video below!
Gorillaz have released a new track entitled Do Ya Thing that features Andre 3000 (Outkast) and James Taylor. They are also giving fans the chance to download it for free HERE. You can listen to the track below and give your thoughts in the comments.
Personally, nothing from them is going to top Clint Eastwood or Feel Good, INC. Both of those songs were incredible and I have yet to get sick of them. This track, while good, isn’t anything special. It just doesn’t have the same spark, the same magic, that I’m used to hearing from them. Ah well, here’s hoping that whatever else comes out will blow my socks off.
After an eleven year absence, Lords of Acid are back! On April 10th, the band will release their new album, Deep Chills, via Metropolis Records. Recorded in Belgium and Los Angeles, the album sees Praga Khan team up with Erhan Kurkun for the music and arrangements while DJ Mea takes on the vocals.
Pop That Tooshie features adult film star Alana Evans while Paranormal Energy features Zak Bagans, star of Ghost Adventures and Paranormal Challenge.
The slightly-NSFW album cover is below along with the full tracklist.
At first listen, Italian band Hopes Die Last could easily be categorized as screamo and just left at that. Hell, my first playthrough of their new album, Trust No One, had me thinking this. But then I spun it a second time and new elements started peeking out from behind the curtains. Touches of alt-rock? Check. How about electronica and even dubstep? Yuppers. But do all of these elements combine into a solid package or do they try to tear themselves free from each other, striving for the spotlight?
Last year I was presented with an interesting review offer: The Real Tuesday Weld’s The Last Werewolf (review), which was the soundtrack to a book of the same name. The concept of a soundtrack to a piece of literature was something very unique and interesting to me and, while I was not able to read the book, I was still able to understand how the story of the album complimented the story of the novel. Now, I’ve been given a very similar chance. Saltillo’s Monocyte is an album that is meant to complement the IDW comic book series of the same name. The comic is grim, violent, and features some astonishing artwork. But does the album have that same attitude? Does it bring music that compliments the same dark atmosphere that pervades within the comic?
On this edition of Twisted Music Video Of The Week, BD Infected user peepjerky recommended that we show you all a video featuring, “…skulls, cut open girls, trippy visuals, and is NSFW”. Hell, I’m sold! So, without further ado, below is the video for On’n'On from Justice, which comes off their album Audio, Video, Disco! READ MORE
Korn has announced a short string of tour dates as a second leg in support of their latest album The Path Of Totality. The tour only has eight stops but manages to go nearly shore to shore (sorry East coast). Support on three dates will come from Kill The Noise while vocalist Jonathan Davis will be debuting his own DJ set under the moniker J Devil.
While I haven’t heard the album, people keep telling me that it’s actually pretty enjoyable. What say you readers? Who’s listened to it and what are your thoughts?
Puscifer have released what might be the trailer park-iest video of the year with Conditions Of My Parole, which you can check after the jump. I really think that this video, combined with the video for Man Overboard, give a great example of what you can expect from the latest record (review here). There is a lighthearted cynicism in Conditions of My Parole while an artistic darkness pervades over Man Overboard.
After hearing the first Puscifer single, Man Overboard, from the new album album, Conditions Of My Parole, I became pretty much convinced that I had to hear the full deal. Well, Spin.com is now streaming the full album and you can check it out after the jump to let me know your thoughts!
I’ve been recently turned onto The Marshmallow Ghosts, an electro-pop group that is based out of Hell, Michigan! It’s a real place. Seriously. I have a t-shirt from there when I went on June 6th, 2006 (Get it? 6-6-06?). Anyways, their debut album will be coming out next week and is accompanied by DVD that is a full-length feature horror film entitled Corpse Reviver No. 2. The album is actually the soundtrack for the film and, from the looks of it, it’s gonna be pretty sweet!
I’ve made no attempt to hide my love of VNV Nation. As much as I’m a metal head, I love some good electronica, industrial, EBM, and dark wave. So when Automatic, the new VNV album, was announced, I immediately felt my ears perk and my focus shift. After all, I’ve been listening to this group for years, so a new album is always an exciting moment. But does Automatic hold up? Check after the jump for the answer.
I am a huge fan of VNV Nation. Ronan one of the first interviews I did for BD Music and he was super cool, so that only compounded my love of the music. Therefore, I hope you can understand why I’m so excited to hear the new VNV album, Automatic. If not, hit the ‘Read More’ button and listen to over nine minutes of electronic/industrial bliss.

The more I hear about the upcoming Puscifer album, Conditions For My Parole, the more I get really excited thinking about it. As I’ve said before, I wasn’t a fan of the first album but the new single, Man Overboard, really has my hopes up. And to get things even more interesting, a video for that song has just been released on RollingStone.com. Check it out after the jump and enjoy!
There’s honestly nothing better than a long weekend, am I right? Three days of doing whatever you want and the knowledge that next week is only four days instead of five. It’s so awesome that it makes me want to dance in joy. Seriously, I just want to get up off this chair and dance like the whitest guy on the planet and not give one shred of care as to how the world sees me. So, you know what? That’s what I’m gonna do! And I’m gonna do it like the guy in the video below, which features the song Pop Culture by Madeon. Dance with me readers! Dance into a long, relaxing weekend!
So, remember a few weeks ago I wrote that Puscifer released a new song, Man Overboard, and that it was the first time I really loved their sound? Well, rejoice Maynard fans as a full album will be released October 18th. Conditions For My Parole is “…equal parts Twilight Zone, Mayberry and Road Warrior. The ghosts & aliens, Republicans & liberals, cowboys & artists living side by side with hostile creatures such as scorpions, spiders, rattlesnakes, javelinas & hippies are just a few of the spicy ingredients that give Conditions of My Parole its unique flavor.” states frontman Maynard James Keenan (of Tool fame).
A North American tour will kick off in early November with more information is on the way. You can pre-order the album on the official website.
Electronic duo Twitch The Ripper (Bodiless review here) will be hitting the road this fall on The Triptych Tour, which features Imperative Reaction, God Module, and System Syn. Having seen these guys on the Thrill Kill Kult tour, I highly recommend that you go and check them out! Once on stage, they seem to enter a trance where the music and the performance is everything. It’s something that I rarely see and I enjoyed every minute of their set. You can check out the full touring schedule at their official website.
One of the first video interviews I conducted for Bloody-Disgusting was VNV Nation at the Necto in Ann Arbor, Michigan. Having already been a fan for years, I was beyond excited to finally meet Ronan Harris and have a chat with him. So, hearing that there is a new album coming out this fall is like having Barry White sex my ears up with his velvety voice. I’m already getting all warm and gooey inside thinking of all the good times I can have with this album. Hell, I remember getting lucky to some VNV tracks once! Don’t believe me? Neither did she, but that’s because she kept asking, “Is it in yet?” Look, it’s not the size of the boat, it’s the motion of the ocean, okay? I’m gonna go cry now…

One of the biggest hurdles for aspiring DJ’s and remix artists is the staggering time and cost of securing permission to use copyrighted material. However, Legitmix, a new software, aims to remove that hurdle entirely and without the record label having any say.
Maynard James Keenan, the reclusive frontman of Tool, has released a new song from his side project Puscifer. The track, Man Overboard, is described by Keenan as “…Twin Peaks in the desert.” I’ll be 100% honest and say that I hated the first Puscifer album. However, I’m loving the sound of this song and if it is any indication of what to expect from the upcoming album, Conditions Of My Parole, I’m all in. Anybody with me on that?
One of my new favorite artists that I can’t stop listening to is Skrillex, the industrial/electronic artist that has taken the music world by storm. His latest EP release, More Monsters And Sprites, has been playing constantly in my place for the last week and shows no signs of stopping. So, after the jump, you can watch the first ever official Skrillex music video for his track Rock N Roll. Keep an eye out for all the celebrity/musician cameos peppered throughout!
Skrillex, the musician who has taken the electronic world by storm, just released a new album today entitled More Monsters And Sprites. Below is Equinox, the first track off the album and I’m really digging on it. I also love the scream that comes in right around the 1:00 mark.
Check after the jump for the track listing of More Monsters And Sprites.
