The U.K. death thrash merchants in Flayed Disciple today release a new official video for "The Gates Of Bedlam," which can be seen below. The video was recorded at Collective Studios by Jody Cusack of Zero Cut Media.
"The Gates Of Bedlam" is taken from the band's three track self-titled vinyl EP due for release in early June via Bethlam Records as a 12” coloured vinyl. The track is lyrically set in London's Bethlam Hospital and discusses the atrocities committed there by the rich and upper class of society against those deemed unfit for real life.
Guitarist Jon Whitfield commented: “This video was loads of fun to do, it's straight up and simple, fast and dark which is what we wanted. It's difficult to do a video without coming across as bent and pretentious, but I think we've done well here. The lyrics for this track are really clever and for me it was the obvious choice to do a vid for.” More...

Every week in Unearthing the Metal Underground, we take a look at three quality bands that haven't gotten as much exposure yet as they should. This week we’ll be taking another look at three metal bands from the West Country (the South West of England,) all with their own take on the genre.
Formed in Taunton, the county town of Somerset in 2008, the awesomely named, Flayed Disciple have been performing their own brand of brutal thrash metal ever since. They released their first record, an EP entitled, "Drawn Viscera" the next year, earning almost instant acclaim in the local metal scene and going on to perform with the likes of South Western thrash legends, Onslaught and New Wave of British Heavy Metal heroes, Diamond Head. In late 2011 they signed a deal with Grindscene Records, which led to the release of their debut full length album, "Death Hammer," which was also given away with copies of the May edition of Terrorizer magazine. The group has been able to perform at a number of festivals over the years, including the ever growing Bloodstock Open Air and will soon be embarking on a trip to India where they will perform a handful of shows along with a slot on the Indian Metal Festival, the very first heavy metal festival in the country, which will be headlined by French death metal outfit, Gojira.
Flayed Disciple - "Ejaculate While Killing"
Scottish death metallers Cerebral Bore have confirmed dates for an Eastern European tour, which kicks off on September 5th in Szeged, Hungary.
The band will be joined by Israel's Viscera Trail and England's Flayed Disciple on the tour, which follows Cerebral Bore's trek across North America on the Summer Slaughter tour in July and August. The band has also confirmed three off-date shows during the Summer Slaughter tour, with Goatwhore and Exhume.
Cerebral Bore guitarist Paul McGuire comments:
"Time to score another seven new countries off the list on this one, and great to do it with two bands who we are already close friends with. We will be starting this tour less than a week after Summer Slaughter, so we should be on top form as far as our playing is concerned, which is always a good thing when playing to new audiences. A stop at Bathory castle is also in order!"

Scottish death metal act Cerebral Bore is due to kick off a U.K. tour tonight in Bristol. The band will be on the road with Aeon and Flayed Disciple, and will follow the run of shows with an appearance at Neurotic Deathfest in the Netherlands on April 29th.
Cerebral Bore guitarist Paul McGuire comments: "After playing a rare show in our home town last week, we got a reminder of how awesome it is to go tour in other places, especially with such good bands and great shows like Neurotic Deathfest.
"This is our first tour as an Earache band and we are all geared up with our new album and new merch for hitting the road. And we're going to be playing a few cities that we haven't played before, like Liverpool, Bristol and Derby. So it will be nice to meet some new brutal buggers on our travels."
