This week on Twisted Music Video Of The Week, I decided to keep the spirit of Halloween going for just a little bit longer. That’s why I chose “Can’t Play Dead”, from The Heavy. The song comes from the band’s latest release The Glorious Dead (iTunes). The video is full of creepy dolls, graveyard sequences, and grainy filters that all add up and scream, “We love horror!” Check it out below!
You might remember this band from their song “Short Change Hero”, which was used in the Batman: Arkham City trailer. READ MORE
If you’re not able to watch small children in any form of distress or danger, then I highly suggest you NOT watch this week’s Twisted Music Video Of The Week. Below is a short film for Health‘s “Tears”, which was directed by David Altobelli and Jeff Desom. The video shows children, none more than two, perhaps three years old, struggling to survive in what looks to be a ghost town of a metropolis. The children are filthy and have resorted to eating the raw meat of birds. It’s a visually striking video, although incredibly bleak.
The song comes from the recent video game Max Payne 3, which Health composed. You can find more information on that soundtrack here. READ MORE
Alright, so I’ll fully admit that this edition of Twisted Music Video Of The Week is partly to promote our Bat For Lashes contest we have going on. But that doesn’t change the fact that the video for “Daniel” is dark, atmospheric, eerie, and those people dressed in black move like the nurses from Silent Hill (totally going to see the new movie later tonight). It’s also a beautiful song, one that I have to leave on once it starts. Check out the video below and, as always, leave a comment with your suggestion for next week’s video!
“Daniel” comes off of Two Suns (iTunes). READ MORE
I’m in a pretty chipper mood today, so that’s why today’s Twisted Music Video Of The Week is a rather upbeat song. But I’m still not skimping out on weird visuals, oh no! Below, you can watch the video for “Two Reasons” from indie rock band Young Rival. The video came about when the band saw the artwork of Michigan artist James Kuhn via reddit. After emailing back and forth, Kuhn sent the band 25 CD’s of himself lip-syncing the song with various forms of face paint on, including a triceratops, Chewbacca, diva Plava Laguna, a witch, and more. Something about many of these images just really creeped me out. Check it out below!
The song comes from the band’s upcoming album Stay Young, which you can order here. READ MORE
This week’s Twisted Music Video Of The Week is brought to you by Mothlite and the video for “Seeing In The Dark”! The song, which comes off their latest release Dark Age, is a more mellow, hauntingly subtle and lighthearted piece while the visuals are playful in their nightmarish aspects. Also, if you listen closely, you can hear tones that are very similar to the sounds Goblin used in their Dawn Of The Dead score! Check out the video below and ease into a nice relaxing weekend!
Dark Age is available on iTunes here. READ MORE
I…I hear something. It’s close but I can’t see where it is. Is it…could it be? Oh, dear god! It is! It’s another Twisted Music Video Of The Week!
This week I’m bring you a band called Heaven’s Basement and their video for “Fire, Fire”, which comes off the upcoming debut album Filthy Empire. The album, which has no set release date aside from “early 2013″ and will be released via Red Bull Records, was produced by John Feldman (The Used, Papa Roach, Black Veil Brides). The video shows the band rocking out in front of a pile of tires (correction: a HUGE pile of tires) while clips of actual riots, forest fires, explosions, floods, and more are interspersed. You can check out the video below.
The song is pretty damn awesome. It’s a catchy “arena hard rock” track that hearkens back to days when a hard rock song was just plain old fun. You can also download the song for free by ‘Liking’ the band’s Official Facebook page here. READ MORE
Holy crap, it’s been a year of Twisted Music Videos! That calls for a celebration! So, this week I bring you the music video for Robbie Williams‘ “Rock DJ”, which comes off his 200 album Sing When You’re Winning. Now, I’m sure that many of you are scratching your heads and wondering, “What the hell is he thinking?” And then there are probably some of you that are gathering your torches and pitchforks. I don’t blame you. I’d do the same thing if I read that Robbie Williams was being posted here and I hadn’t seen the video. However, knowing exactly what’s in the video, I feel very comfortable saying that you should at least check it out. It’s bloody, it’s gory, and it’s rather hilarious! Check it out below!

With the release of the Texas Chainsaw 3D trailer yesterday, this Twisted Music Video Of The Week couldn’t fit more perfectly. I bring you “Secret Society” from Title Fight‘s Floral Green, which comes out next Tuesday (pre-order). The video shows a young girl who is infatuated with a local “bad boy”. But when she realizes that the object of her love is off the market, things go rather…violent. Probably NSFW, be careful watching this one!

It’s been a slightly miserable day today in terms of the weather. It was overcast with a small breeze. It was the type of weather that makes me crave the fun of Halloween. I want rain. I want grey clouds. I want fog. I want leafless trees. All of this combined made me decide that the Twisted Music Video Of The Week was going to be “Vampira” from none other than Devin Townsend Band! The song comes from the 2006 album Synchestra (Inside Out Music).
A new track Devin Townsend Project‘s upcoming album Epicloud entitled “True North” was streamed earlier today. Listen to it here.
Devin Townsend Project just hit the road as co-headliners alongside Katatonia on the “Epic Kings & Idols” Tour. Paradise Lost and Stolen Babies are opening. Tour dates can be found below.

Today brings you Strapping Young Lad‘s “Almost Again”, which comes off the 2006 album The New Black from Century Media Records. The video is very reminiscent of Tetsuo: Iron Man and features a lot of human mixed with machine. Check it out below for a gruesome time!

It’s Friday! Twisted Music Video Of The Week time! This week we’ve got Dimmu Borgir‘s “Gateways”, which comes from their most recent album Abrahadabra (iTunes). Featuring guest vocals from Agnete Kjølsrud (ex-Animal Alpha, Djerv), the song is a fast-paced symphonic black metal ride that is pretty damn catchy and features some fantastic vocals towards the end. As for the video, it shows the band performing in an abandoned factory of some sort while all sorts of weird and crazy things happen around them. Gravity is defied, people bathe in blood, and organs are thrown about willy nilly. Check it out below!

It’s Friday and you know what that means. That’s right! Another Twisted Music Video Of The Week! This time, we’ve got “The Keepers” from Santigold. The song comes off her sophomore album Master Of My Make-Believe (iTunes), which came out May 1st via Downtown Records and Atlantic Records.
The video, while not your standard definition of “twisted” or “horror-esque”, has a very off-center feel about it. Nothing is quite normal in this video as a family enjoys their dinner, gets a hail of bullets shot at them, and then continue eating as thought nothing had happened. Is that all that happens? Oh no, not even close. You’ll have to watch the video to see what other craziness ensues.

Are we really already at 40 weeks of twisted music videos? My my, how the time flies. And it seems like there is no shortage of creepy, demented, violent, brutal, terrifying videos to bring you! And that’s why this week I’m excited to show you Lorn‘s “Ghosst(s)”, which is an animated video that, once it gets going, I dare you to look away from it. It is easily one of the most fascinating animated videos I’ve ever seen and is chock full of horrific images that will not easily leave your mind.
The track comes from Lorn’s Ninja Tunes debut album Ask the Dust (order here), which the artist describes as “haunted, oily, smeared.” After watching the video and hearing the music, I can get where he is coming from!

This edition of Twisted Music Video Of The Week is Municipal Waste‘s awesome animated video for “You’re Cut Off”. Recommended by JohnBoggs4, the video is full of gore, violence, zombies, and all sorts of other visual delights! However, due to the some of the sights, I’m gonna label this one NSFW and hope that none of you get in trouble for watching it at work should you decide to do that.
“You’re Cut Off” comes off the band’s latest release The Fatal Feast (iTunes). READ MORE
It’s Friday and that means another Twisted Music Video Of The Week! This time we’ve got “Zombie” from Family Force 5, a video that features over 300 extras! The die-hard fans came from far off, one even going so far as to take a 52-hour Greyhound bus ride from Austin, TX to Columbus, OH to be part of the shoot. After the video was done being shot, the fans got to rest before a special private concert/dance party from the band. The song comes off their III.V EP, which you can snag on iTunes. You can check out the video below.
Can I just say how satisfying it is seeing Ohio State fans as zombies? Us Wolverines would never get caught unaware. Go Blue!

This edition of Twisted Music Video Of The Week is VIZA‘s video for “Carnivalia”. Featuring cameos from none other than Angus Scrimm (The Tall Man) and Tiny Lister (The Fifth Element, The Dark Knight), the video shows a man, horribly disfigured by way of a curse, exacting his revenge upon those who afflicted him. It’s a really fun song and a very well done video, so I highly recommend you check it out below.
You can follow VIZA on Facebook and pick up their album here. READ MORE
Diving into the world of hip-hop, we’re looking towards Kanye West and his video for “Monster” for this edition of Twisted Music Video Of The Week. The song comes from Kanye’s critically acclaimed My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy, which came out in 2010. The album won the Grammy Award for Best Rap Album.
Definitely NSFW, this video features West and “dead” women. Like, a lot of them. Women hanging from their necks, women laying on beds, beheaded women, oh my! It’s a veritable smorgasbord of dead women! Check out the video below and make sure to leave a comment with your suggestion for the next edition of Twisted Music Video Of The Week! READ MORE
Okay, don’t ask me to explain what’s going on in this video because I can’t. I just can’t, alright? All I know is that one of the twins from the second Matrix movie is in a fur coat, a white guy has an alien arm and the black guy is apparently convinced that should a man touch his penis, he’ll be both gay and unclean. Oh, and there is a ridiculous amount of twisted and demented visuals and great sets. This is how I would describe Die Antwoord‘s Evil Boy video. So, check it out below but be warned that it is NSFW!
