King Gizzard stays thrashy with “Self Immolate” music video

With the release of the Planet B music video on April 8th, the Fishing for Fishies full length on April 27th, and the brand new song, Self Immolate, King Gizzard is seriously back on top of their game. The music video for Self Immolate was posted on May 28th and definitely continues the thrashy trend the band set with Planet B. The video was directed by John Angus Stewart and stars Katherine Grinlaw as Zagan, the insane murderer you’ll remember seeing in the Planet B video. In case you didn’t get enough burning body action from the Game of Thrones wrapup, there are a lot of burning bodies in this too. It looks like the band used a lot of special effects as well as fire-proof stunt suits to achieve the result of, basically roasting.

King Gizzard has shown that they’ve never been afraid to produce a broad range of music. It’s looking more and more like we could get a thrash album in the tradition of early Megadeth, Metallica, or Slayer, but the band is also notorious for dropping releases abruptly and surprising fans, so it’s hard to tell what exactly is going to happen, which is half the fun. Enjoy the new song: Self Immolate.
