If we’re gonna kick off 2014′s Twisted Music Video Of The Week series, you better be damned sure I’m going to do it right! So, with that in mind, I wanted to bring a video whose visuals AND music are batsh@t crazy: Mr. Bungle‘s “Quote Unquote”. The song, originally titled “Travolta”, comes from the band’s 1991 self-titled album. The video, as I stated above, is just as insane as Bungle’s music. It’s full of strange images, dead bodies, creepy dolls, BDSM gear, and much, much more. Head on below and enjoy the first Twisted Video of 2014! READ MORE
It’s Friday and it’s the day after Halloween, which is both uplifting yet depressing at the same time. So I thought I’d keep the Halloween feel going a little bit longer by bring you the latest video from Deltron 3030, “City Rising From The Ashes”, which features Mike Patton (Faith No More, Mr. Bungle). The video take place in a post-apocalyptic world where three children do their best to survive, eating bugs and living amongst the ruins. The kids each wear a mask, which gives this an ever-so-slight Halloween feel, although I can understand if you think I’m stretching things a wee bit.

Mike Patton (Faith No More, Mr. Bungle, Peeping Tom) has a face that perfectly matches his voice. It can be serious, comical, surreal, furious, and more, just like the various tones that pour forth from his mouth.

Straying a bit out of the normal Bloody-Disgusting fare, I sat down with Guano Padano’s latest album, 2, this weekend. I was seduced into checking it out when I learned that Mike Patton (Faith No More, Mr. Bungle) did a guest appearance on one of the songs. If Mike Patton decided that this album was good enough to do some vocal work on, you better believe that I’m very intrigued and want to check it out. READ MORE
