BEATEN TO DEATH: New 'At Rockefeller' DVD Preview Clip Posted Online
- Oct. 5, 2012
Norwegian grindcore metallers BEATEN TO DEATH, who feature in their ranks members of INSENSE, SHE SAID DESTROY and TSJUDER, will release their first official live DVD on October 26 via Mas-Kina Recordings.
Entitled "At Rockefeller", the DVD will include footage of the band's performance at Rockefeller Music Hall in Oslo, Norway on June 17, 2012, as the support act for KILLSWITCH ENGAGE. The setlist sees the band playing all the songs from their acclaimed debut album, "Xes And Strokes", as well as new tracks that will appear on their forthcoming second effort. According to the band, the DVD will include the entire show, unedited and uncut, so that fans can experience the raw energy of BEATEN TO DEATH's live performance.
Commented guitarist Tommy Hjelm: "The only rule we have is that we're not going to follow the set trends. So the idea to make a live album came up and we figured, why not? Record the whole thing from beginning to end, without brushing out all the mistakes? Why not? With new songs not yet released? Why not? And really! Why not? We are so tired of the perfect-pitch, soulless stuff that overruns the market these days. This is the exact opposite of that. It's gritty, dirty, it follows no metronome, it hides no evidence and it abides by no rules. The mixing should reflect that, and I think it does."
BEATEN TO DEATH's setlist for the Rockfeller show was as follows:
01. Intro 02. Pointless Testament 03. Winston Churchill 04. On Running 05. Vinni Butterfly 06. Soulless Alarm 07. Krepsekamp 08. 3-2-1, It's On 09. Obliteration Of Nekromantheon 10. Cat Olympics 11. A Word To The Wise 12. Groundhog Day 13. Xes And Strokes 14. Erik Og Skrik
The "3-2-1, It's On" performance clip, taken from the "At Rockefeller" DVD, can be seen below.
In addition, an audio version of "At Rockefeller" will also available for download via Spotify, iTunes, Bandcamp, WiMP, etc.
BEATEN TO DEATH is working on its as-yet-untitled second album, due later this year.
On the topic of the musical direction of the new CD, bassist Mika Martinussen said: "We already have, like, 15 songs, but the next album will probably be more or less just as short and intense as the last one. It looks like the songs will be more varied on this release than on 'Xes', with weird ideas, stronger elements of other genres than grind/death metal, more melodic stuff, arrangements that are both simpler and more complex."
