Canadian brutal death metal outfit Accursed Spawn has posted a guitar playthrough video for the song "Clotheshanger Abortion," taken from the 2014 EP "Putrid." The video below features the band's two 6-string wizards in a solo tradeoff, that ends in a whammy slam that will send shivers down even the most seasoned metal fan's back.

"After releasing the fretless bass playthrough last week, we received a bunch of requests for some guitar footage. We had some footage left over from a previous recording session, and figured we'd put it to work," explains drummer Jay Cross. "We couldn't be happier with the resulting product".

Accursed Spawn Posts Fretless Bass Playthrough

Ottawa, ON outfit Accursed Spawn has posted a fretless bass playthrough video for the song "Clotheshanger Abortion," taken from the 2014 EP "Putrid." The video was filmed and edited by Brittany Dawn Kreatives.

Drummer Jay Cross comments: “We figured it was about time to show people what Wei has added to the Accursed Spawn sound. To say the least, his hands flying around the fretless has caught a lot of people’s attention since he joined about a year ago. Hopefully this will give fans a sense of what they can expect when we record our debut full-length later this year.”

Accursed Spawn Posts Performance Footage

Accursed Spawn has released footage of "Date Rape Psychosis" from a recent performance in Montreal, QC at Bar L'Alizé. Drummer Jay Cross comments:

“Date Rape Psychosis is probably the first song most people heard from us. We released it as part of our first demo, Dismember the Informant, back in 2010 and have been playing it live ever since. It's great to have some proper footage of it to show people, since the original recording is pretty lo-fi. Ondes Chocs did a great job of putting the it all together!”

The footage was recorded by Dr. Light for the Quebec-based blog Ondes Chocs. Accursed Spawn recently released second EP "Putrid," which can be purchased at Bandcamp here. More...

Accursed Spawn Posts Studio Webisode

Canadian death metal outfit Accursed Spawn has released a webisode from the drum recording sessions for upcoming EP, "Putrid," which can be seen below.

Jay Cross (drums) commented on the video, “We had some footage laying around from the 'Putrid' drum recordings so Luke [vocals] and I decided to edit it together and post it up on YouTube. Half the material is the standard drum recording stuff, and the other half gives people a flavor for what recording with us is actually like. In other words, empty beer bottles and stupid jokes. We're a pretty deep band.”

The "Putrid" EP will be independently released on October 28th, marking the band's second EP since 2012's "Engendering a Sociopath." You can hear the song "Burned Into Sterility" at this location.

Accursed Spawn Releases New Video Clip

Ottawa’s own maniacal ‘violent death metal' masters Accursed Spawn have released their first-ever video for the song "Dismember the Informant" from the group's 2010 demo. The video, created by singer Luke Wargasm, features a collage of war footage from the Iraq and Afghanistan wars. The video can be viewed below. Accursed Spawn also commented:

“We’ve always been a DIY band, so I thought to myself, why the fuck not just make our own video? I thought the war footage was a perfect match, given of course the lyrical content of the song, but also the gritty atmosphere it portrays. All the footage used was filmed by actual soldiers themselves, making it a bit lo-fi, but I think this gives the video a powerful feel. I mean common, the sight of neon green night vision while fireballs light up in the sky over baghdad during a guitar solo? What more could you want!"

The band is currently gearing up for live performances, having spent much of the summer writing new material following the release of "Engendering a Sociopath" in early 2012 during a short stint with New York legends Malignancy.
