MusicDishTV Presents "Teeth Swallower" By Australian Metal Band KUNVUK

Unlike most artists today, Australian metal band KUNVUK goes hard and doesn't just push the boundaries. They absolutely destroy it. Once again, KUNVUK brings their own brand of insanity and chaos to the music video of "Teeth Swallower", recently released through the band's Youtube account. This one will surely be a delight for any metal fan.

Staying true to their style, KUNVUK delivers 6 minutes of pure anarchy. Reminiscent of a low-budget slasher film, the video features ominous shots of alleyways, basements, and abandoned garages. The cinematography is shaky and constantly responds to the hard-hitting bits of the song. "Teeth Swallower" is like a highlight reel of horror movies, with shots of water torture, hooded figures, and lots and lots of running interspersed with shots of the band rocking out. One of the most memorable images is a close-up of the lead singer's bearded mouth Bombarded with images, the audience cannot help but feel pulled in.

As we go deeper and deeper into the band's psychotic world, we also close in on the song's climax, a breakdown in which the lead singer's rant in an almost poetic fashion. At this pivotal moment, the chaos dies down a little and we are led to a roof where a sole figure is sitting. When the lead singer moves in, he realizes the figure is himself, and the chaos returns.

With a surprising amount of effort and passion placed into the film, "Teeth Swallower" is any metal fan's dream. Be prepared to be gunned down by six minutes of mayhem.
