After recently completing a European tour with Suffocation and Abiotic, Cattle Decapitation has returned home to release a new video for "Clandestine Ways (Krokodil Rot)," taken from latest album, "The Anthropocene Extinction" (reviewed here).
Directed once again by Mitch Masse, who also directed the band's video for "Your Disposal," "Clandestine Ways (Krokodil Rot)" is another visual feat in the band's notorious filmography. The censored edition is available below. The un-censored version will be released soon; stay tuned for more details.
Travis Ryan (vocals) comments: "Mitch Massie once again hurls us into a nightmarish world of the eye for an eye table turning that Cattle Decapitation lyrics exude, but this time in a much more surreal manner. Here we see the circus has come to town and with it a grisly 'freaks' exhibit featuring the barbaric aftermath of what the protagonists (the 'Ringmaster' and a freed 'specimen') have done to the leading researchers at Cosmeugenics Laboratories - a place where Cosmetics testing is performed on earthen creatures all in the name of Human vanity - but this time by completely incorrectly administering the clandestine, flesh-eating drug 'krokodil.' I'll leave out the horrific details as you'll have to see that for yourself!" More...
