goat of departure

We’ve already discussed bands with a sense of humour today and, while they’ve never been the most serious band around, melodic death metal legends The Black Dahlia Murder have injected a near lethal dosage of ‘what the fucking fuck’ into their latest video for ‘Goat Of Departure‘. There’s suits, mopeds, gambling, Belphegor t-shirts, fireworks, Slash from Guns ‘n’ Roses, goats… The list goes on. But most notably, is, what has to be an homage to the Statutory Ape that used to grace their live set every time they unveiled the track of the same name from the 2005 record Miasma. Just check it out for yourself to see what I mean:

I have no idea what the hell they were going for with the video, but that only served to make it all the more memorable.  Be sure to check out the band’s latest release Everblack, out now on Metal Blade Records, because it slays. And it makes a hell of a lot more sense.
