Skindred have teamed up with Kerrang Magazine to debut their latest video. The video was shot for the track 'Cut Dem' and can be viewed below.

Skindred frontman Benji Webbe says that he got to live out an odd fantasy on the set of the video which was directed by Tim Fox, who helmed their 'Warning' clip. The band are dressed as a gang of gravediggers assisting Benji, who plays an evil doctor with a penchant for experimenting on corpses.

"I've always wanted to see what Victorian London was like," explains Benji, "so we thought it would be fun to make a video set in that period, with added zombies. The Victorian lifestyle really appealed to me; everyone was smartly dressed and drunk on gin. Total madness!

"During the video, one of the dead bodies is full of black smoke which turns us all into raging zombie voodoo bastards!" he adds of the short film's pant-wetting narrative. "It's a pretty dark video but it was a lot of fun to make."

'Cut Dem' will be released on August 24th through BMG.



Here's a fabulous Aerosmith pictorial document as seen through the lens of famed British photographer Tony Mottram. Tony photographed the band over many years for various magazines and now has a monthly column here on MetalTalk.

As was often the case, only one photo ever got published and in the fast moving world of weekly magazines sometimes entire sessions would be done and left undeveloped.

Tony started shooting Aerosmith from towards the end of the period with Jimmy Crespo and Rick Dufay and onwards through the return of original members Joe Perry and Brad Whitford that resulted in the albums 'Done With Mirrors', 'Permanent Vacation' and 'Pump'.


As well as shooting the band several times in England, this collection includes images from a session at the band's rehearsal room in Boston. Littered throughout is a mixture of live and off stage photos including a selection of photos taken at London's famous Marquee club when they were joined on stage by Jimmy Page.

This limited edition hardback book, presented in a flight case and printed on silk paper, is an opportunity to own a unique selection of photos, most of which have never seen the light of day before.

This unique item is presented in an aluminium flight case and will be published in late November. Earlybird subscribers who order by 31st October will have their name printed within a dedicated page in the book.
