Necrophagia: Through Eyes of the Dead (Uncut) (1999) - 2002 Red Stream VHS

.
Most horror fans are aware of death metal pioneers Necrophagia from their video "...And You Will Live In Terror" on Anchor Bay's DVD of Lucio Fulci's The Beyond. Around that time they hooked up with the fiercely independent maverick Jim Van Bebber (Deadbeat at Dawn, The Manson Family) to craft several certifiably fucked up music videos showcased on this VHS.

Even if one doesn't care for the music, fans of Van Bebber will definitely want to check this out. The clips often have that cheap suburban grit and extreme air of sunny perversion that the man who told off Synapse Films in a prison phone call effortlessly achieves every time he points a camera at something. Both this tape and the DVD from Seasons of Mist are out-of-print.

Love these guys! Been trying to get Killjoy to do an interview for my site for awhile now. Their new CD just came out not too long ago.

I got a coffin boxset of theirs with a digipak CD and metal pin. It's pretty neat.

Very, very nice. Their Cannibal Holocaust EP will always be a fave. Phil Anselmo sounded like a good fit for them.

...do you dare tread upon the staircase?
