World Premiere: Recs of the Flesh – 'You Kill' Music Video


Recs of the Flesh 2012

Ever since I got my first taste of musical sorcery from Sardinia's dark cosmic rockers Recs of the Flesh, by way of a sweet remix of Prong's "3rd Option (Hold On Tight)," this band has been my jam. Shortly after I reviewed their first and second albums (check out the article here), the band went on an extended hiatus, which was quite a downer.. but thankfully that break has ended: founder/frontman Massimo Usai reformed the quartet and is preparing to unleash a brand new Recs album titled Fear, Lies and Collapsing Comets. To tide us over until release time (and believe me, you'll be hearing all about it before the record drops), he offered FEARnet the world premiere of the album's first music video, “You Kill.”

The vid is both directed and edited by Usai, who also came up with the moody, blood-spattered visual concept, alternating steadicam work by Vincenzo Rodi with hand-held shots by Mirko Dessi' to create a claustrophobic nightmare landscape. Usai also recorded, mixed and mastered the song, which captures that intense hybrid of post-punk gloom and raw death-rock attitude that first grabbed my attention.
So without further ado, punch up “You Kill"... and long live the new Flesh!
