American progressive metalcore/deathcore act Kinkshamer released their debut EP “Societal Sects” in 2019. And not so long ago they presented a new music video edited from various film footages. Deep themes with horror and psychedelic influences not without the surrealism notes. With black and white color and the same dark mood.
Personally, I’ve always been drawn to visually driven bands. The masks of Slipknot, the raunchy visuals of early Nine Inch Nails, or the live production of Rammstein absolutely caught my attention, in addition to their music. The list goes on of visually compelling acts such as Ghost, Skinny Puppy, Mushroomhead, Tool, Night Verses, Nekrogoblikon, etc. Being a conceptual project, I was super excited to add equally provocative visuals to our raunchy music.
If I recall correctly, ‘Beauty and the Beast’ was the second track we wrote and recorded following ‘A Most Vulgar Display,’ so the topic of beastiality was certainly a leap forward in taboo. From the dog bark to moan samples, there definitely was an effort to bring a level of context and discomfort to such an extreme topic. As for ‘Foreplay,’ that was simply intended as a brief intro or walk-on-stage song that discusses sex addiction. We hope that both tracks together plus the visuals pulled from various iconic, perverse, and macabre films throughout time is similarly as grabbing as our initial discovery as Slipknot, Nine Inch Nails, or Rammstein. Keep your eyes out for more videos coming later this month too. [vocalist Riley Rowe]
Each song on the album revolves around a particular fetish, kink, or aspect of sex. Later in 2019, the band opened up for homoerotic deathcore pioneers Brojob. Currently, the group plans to follow-up their debut EP with even more provocative, shocking, and most of all kinky music in the future. For now, they have pieced together some raunchy and stimulating visuals for the whole aforementioned EP.
