VOW (6/27/2012): Suffocation – Cataclysmic Purification

The music Video-Of-the-Week for this upcoming July 4th holiday is “Cataclysmic Purification” by Suffocation. I thought with the fireworks and all, some good old explosive Death metal was in order. Suffocation is one of the forefather-bands of the modern Tech-Death movement and the guys deserve every ounce of credit for consistenly creating strong music that is faithful to their specific and unique “sound”.

Perhaps the best way to describe “Cataclysmic Purification” is: great song, great video. There are scenes of the band members playing in an old industrial building and there are quick shots of animation that are reminiscent of some of the animation in Pink Floyd’s “The Wall”. In fact, “Cataclysmic Purification” is like a gory version of “Goodbye Blue Sky” (my favorite moment in “The Wall”). You could also describe the animation as the type of thing that investigators would find in a serial killer’s notebook from high school.

Enjoy, have a happy fourth (U.S. readers), and click the link below!
