This past January marked the release of BILL & PHIL‘s Songs Of Darkness And Despair, the collaborative release between horror icon Bill Moseley – most notable as Chop Top in Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2, and Otis in Rob Zombie’s House Of 1000 Corpses and Devil’s Rejects – and extreme music legend Philip H. Anselmo (Down, Pantera, Superjoint, Scour, Philip H. Anselmo & The Illegals, Arson Anthem etc.).
In commemorate its release, today Revoker offers up the visual accompaniment to “Dirty Eye.” The clip comes in the form of a strange and dark puppet show/music video directed by filmmaker, Ryan Oliver of Deathblow Productions.
Notes director Ryan Oliver of the clip, “As a three-year alumni of Housecore Horror Fest, it was a special honor to make a video for BILL & PHIL. My crew and I had a lot of fun making this bizarre puppet show over the past winter/spring. This opportunity came right on the heels of our last Housecore video for [Housecore labelmates] Child Bite’s ‘Vermin Mentality.’ Though different, I think they complement each other quite well. Once again, we were trusted to do what we wanted creatively and in the end, it seemed best to follow Bill Moseley’s lyrical cues and try to interpret them in an entertaining fashion. We’re pretty pleased with the turnout and hope it lives up to the uniquely wild music on this record.”
“This video and down ‘n’ dirty and comes with no strings attached,” says Moseley, “well, except for the puppets. I can’t speak for Phil, but frankly I’ve never looked better!” Anselmo finds it, “very very very very very interesting.”
Produced and performed by Anselmo and Stephen “The Big Fella” Berrigan (Down, SYK, Philip H. Anselmo & The Illegals, Eyehategod, haarp, Classhole, etc.), and mastered by Scott Hull of Visceral Sound, BILL & PHIL‘s Songs Of Darkness And Despair includes guest appearances by Kevin Bond (Superjoint) on guitar, Squizzy Squires (King Parrot) on bass and guitar, and Jose “Blue” Gonzalez (Superjoint, Warbeast, Philip H. Anselmo & The Illegals) on percussion.
