VOW (6/11/2012): Cannibal Corpse – Encased in Concrete

This week, I bring you the Cannibal Corpse video for “Encased in Concrete”, off of their latest album “Torture”. I chose this video because the visuals go hand-in-hand with the power, darkness, and machine-like nature of the band’s music. I say machine-like, because it’s amazes me that five guys can play with such rhythmic precision. Together, they sound like a finely-tuned engine and that is one reason (among many) that Cannibal Corpse is one of my favorite bands.

In the video, there are scenes of a tied-up man who is being covered with wet concrete. Those scenes illustrate the meaning of the song, which is nice, but what I really like about this video is the environment that surrounds the band. There are quick shots of spiked metal machinery, fire, walls in what looks like an old farmhouse, and a huge scary looking tree (the antithesis of the tree-of-life?  tree-of-death?). In a way, it’s like the band is playing in Leatherface’s front yard and this fits extremely well with the music… which, incidently, is like a vicious three-minute auditory beating. Incredible.
