Wretched has released a controversial new music video. Here's the description from the press release:
"In order to continue on their path of carnage, North Carolina’s WRETCHED came to the conclusion that they needed something visually striking to hit the pulse of the metal community. They came up with a video concept that would be so heinous, gory and unsettling that it would make Lucio Fulci and Eli Roth cry themselves to sleep. With Director Scott Hansen at the helm, WRETCHED’s 'A Preservation of Immorality' outdid any preconceived notions and has proudly claimed the title of 'The Bloodiest Music Video Ever.' However, making the gruesome marriage of a horror film and music video come to fruition was not an easy task. The cast and crew were up for 30 hours straight, drenched the entire time and ruining a brand new bass guitar after being completely soaked in blood. After 72 hours of clean-up and days locked inside an editing room, WRETCHED is proud to unleash this horrific accomplishment at last. This video is not for the weak-stomached or the faint of heart, but, if you are up to the challenge, it can now be viewed at BloodiestMusicVideoEver.com. 'A Preservation of Immorality' evoked nausea, disgust, and (for the blood thirsty) lechery from the 10,000 people who were brave enough to view a first look over the weekend. Watch now, if you dare, and be repulsed by the Bloodiest Music Video Ever!
"A note to viewers: you must be 18 years of age or older to view such brutality."
