San Francisco-based death metal two piece Hatchets For Hands have released the music video for their song “Bad Men” off the group’s new LP ‘Cabaret of Decay’, which dropped earlier this year.
The highly cinematic, blood-soaked new video premiered exclusively with Knotfest on June 26.
The band shares how the dramatic, single-shot video concept for “Bad Men” was the perfect approach to bring the track to life.
“The film’s director (Nicholas Wotyuk) had an idea from the very beginning to shoot the entire video in one take using a high speed camera to capture the terror and violence of the chase.”
Formed in San Francisco, California in 2009, Hatchets For Hands is the death metal duo of guitarist/bassist Brian Parks and drummer/vocalist Cullen Poythress.
The band is defined by familiar elements of American thrash and traditional death metal mixed with the soaring leads and darkened melodies associated with Northern Europe’s more melodic exports.
