Creepsylvanian thrashers Ghoul may be a little bit out from their fan favorite 2016 LP Dungeon Bastards, but that isn't stopping the gore-obsessed troublemakers from laying it on thick. Their latest release is the video for "Shred the Dead," an animated effort that follows the quartet as they skate through a series of obstacles, attacking gangs of ghouls (and people we despise). The fun clip comes to us via director Zak Kirwin, who uses the ripping thrash track as a catalyst for all the mischief the four get into, making for a highly fun and memorable clip. Check it out for the first time above.
Director Zak Kirwin describes his process in the video's creation as such: "When I talked to whoever runs Ghoul's social media, I was itching to animate a Ghoul song. The music and aesthetic are right up my alley. When they came back with the idea of doing 'Shred the Dead,' things really kicked off. Skateboarding, zombies, riffs and grievous injury ... what more could you want? After that I was chained to a desk in a Creepsylvanian 'animation' studio, drawing till my fingernails cracked and bled, subsisting on nothing but corpse juice and old hot fries. I lost two fingers and partial vision in my right eye. Do I regret it? Of course not! Do I wake up screaming every night? Yes, but I always did that; it's just louder now."
Dungeon Bastards is out now via Tankcrimes, Catch them at the Tankcrimes Takeover at The Oakland Metro on February 2nd.
