Enter the Horror-Soaked Black Death Industrial of FLIEGE “Jaws of Life”

In troubled times, horror thrives, and that’s why I’m really digging the new music from NYC’s Fliege. They’re putting out their new album One Day They’ll Wonder What Happened Here on November 4th, and it’s a scene-by-scene retelling of John Carpenter’s 1982 film, The Thing, which celebrates its 40th anniversary this year—follow them on Spotify and pre-order the album here. Today we’re lucky to be premiering their new video for “Jaws of Life,” featuring 3D Animations by Arnau Gates and edited by Brandon Gallagher. The scathing black metal howls set to unrelenting death metal riffs and vicious, pummelling percussion make this an addicting video that I can’t stop hitting replay on! It feels like a vision of a desolate, sanitized future, one where human contact is shunned. If that resonates with you, then hit play on our premiere of Fliege’s “Jaws of Life” video below…

John Carpenter is probably my favorite director and at some point I really wanted to explore one of his films through the Fliege prism. When COVID hit I revisited ‘The Thing’ and was immediately grabbed by the themes of infection, isolation, and paranoia that were swirling all around us in real life at the time.
