Self proclaimed “swampy death rock” band We Are Hex has released an official video for their new track “Tongues”, which you can watch below. Directed by Mitch Massie (“Forced Gender Reassignment”), the video is performance footage of the band playing in what appears to be a nightmarishly large mouth and rib cage. The song comes from the band’s upcoming 7″, which will be released this Spring via Latest Flame. READ MORE
Deathgrind masters Cattle Decapitation have landed at #1 on WatchMojo.com’s “Another Top 10 Controversial Music Videos” list for their now infamous “Forced Gender Reassignment” clip, which was directed by Mitch Massie. We premiered the video in 2012 and it has since become an internet sensation, attaining an almost “2 Girls 1 Cup” aura where viewers are challenged to see how long they can last before turning away in horror/disgust/revulsion/whatever.
What’s interesting to note is that this list tackles primarily mainstream artists, such as Miley Cyrus, Madonna, Erykah Badu, as well as others. Even the harder artists in this list, Tool, Korn, and Rammstein, are incredibly popular, so their placement amongst the “mainstream” makes sense. But Cattle Decapitation is not a part of the mainstream, nor have they ever been. To see them on this list is incredibly surprising and refreshing. However, it’s also troubling. READ MORE
Bloody-Disgusting has teamed up with Indiana experimental blackened noise/horror electronics artist Demonologists to bring you the exclusive music video premiere for “Graveyard Ejaculations”. Directed by Mitch Massie (Cattle Decapitation, Murder Construct) the video is nothing short of a nightmare, a phantasmagoric sequence of horrific, erotic, surreal images punctured by a cacophony of demonic howls and piercing shrieks. Using vast amounts of practical effects, the video is highly NSFW due to nudity and gore.
The track “Graveyard Ejaculations” is set to be featured on an upcoming split 12″ with Dargar (featuring members of Harassor), on Whispering Eye Recordings, featuring artwork by John Paul Whetzel and Darea Plantin of Deathstench.

It’s pretty amazing to think that the Twisted Music Video Of The Week series has reached its 100th volume. There’ve been 99 twisted music videos brought to you by yours truly over almost two years. But for this special 100th edition, I’ve decided to hand over the reins to three music video directors who are constantly challenging the genre, pushing the envelope and raising it back to an art form that moves beyond simple performance videos. So after the jump you can see which videos Phil Mucci (Huntress, Stone Sour, High On Fire), Michael Panduro (Job For A Cowboy, Cephalic Carnage), and Mitch Massie (Cattle Decapitation, Child Bite) chose as their favorite Twisted Music Videos!

Masters of deathgrind, Cattle Decapitation have released an official music video for “Your Disposal”, which was directed by Mitch Massie (who directed the controversial “Forced Gender Reassignment”). The song comes from the band’s latest album Monolith Of Inhumanity, which came out last year via Metal Blade Records.
Singer Travis Ryan states, “Director Mitch Massie has presented us all with a bizarre retelling of the story of Adam and Eve using themes from our latest album Monolith of Inhumanity. Here we see Eve giving birth to humanity, a living, breathing piece of primordial meat birthed into the dirt making its way through the Garden of Eden, hellbent on destruction… A clean and conscious monolith foretelling what could be possible given the fact that humans exhibit superior traits of intelligence, instead the earth is flooded with technological fallout and debris by the hands of man. This video is very much a prequel to our other videos “Forced Gender Reassignment” and of course, “Kindgom of Tyrants”.”

There are a handful of music video directors whom I truly admire and always look forward to seeing their work. Mitch Massie, the man behind “Forced Gender Reassignment“. Phil Mucci, who did Stone Sour‘s “Do Me A Favor“. And then there is Michael Panduro, who directed two music videos that we at Bloody-Disgusting got to premiere: Cephalic Carnage‘s “Ohrwurm” and “Tarnished Gluttony” from Job For A Cowboy.
Panduro’s work always has a very high budget look and is never afraid to go in as close to the meat and bones (pun intended) as necessary, while also having the strength to pull back and expose the entire scene. Then there is the fact that he seems to be able to tackle any story with the same amount of intensity and commitment as any other project. There is a signature to his style, something that makes me able to watch a video and think, “This is definitely done by Michael Panduro.” It’s like hearing a particular guitar tone and knowing right away, even without hearing a single word, “This is [insert band name here].”
And now Michael needs our help. With all the amazing horror-influenced music videos and short films he has produced, Panduro has turned his eye to making Postpartum, a full-length feature horror film that he describes as a “Cronenberg’s “The Brood” mixed with Von Trier’s “Antichrist”“. Panduro has launched an IndieGoGo and some of the perks might very well pique your interest, especially the Postpartum Mixtape, which features tracks from Job For A Cowboy, Cephalic Carnage, Rwake, Saint Vitus, and more.
Head on below for a proof-of-concept for Postpartum as well as the cover art for Postpartum Mixtape. READ MORE
Bloody-Disgusting is excited to bring you the exclusive music video premiere for Detroit band Child Bite‘s video for “Abysmal Splatter”. The video is directed by acclaimed music video director Mitch Massie, whose video for Cattle Decapitation‘s “Forced Gender Reassignment” shocked the internet and caused untold amounts of controversy. You can watch this exclusive premiere below.
Okay, I’ve seen some bizarre, twisted, and downright fucked up music videos in my time. But there wasn’t really anything that could’ve prepared me for Cattle Decapitation‘s “Forced Gender Reassignment”. Let me put it like this: when a video is too intense for YouTube, it gets on Vimeo. That site will let almost anything slide. Nope. Vimeo flat out rejected it, wanting nothing to do with it. But we at Bloody-Disgusting are never ones to shy away from bringing you the most vile visual material out there. So we gladly accepted the opportunity to not only premiere this video for you all, but also to be the only site on the internet with the balls to host it.
So, if you’ve got the guts (and the stomach), you can watch this INCREDIBLY NSFW video below. But don’t say we didn’t warn you.
Also, do us a favor and record your reaction of the video and post the video link in the comments below!
“Forced Gender Reassignment” comes from Cattle Decapitation’s latest album Monolith Of Inhumanity (iTunes). The band also has a ton of tour dates coming up. You can see the schedule for all the shows below. READ MORE
