Rap metal enfant terrible and self-proclaimed “Anti-Icon” Ghostemane is bringing the album cycle for his wildly popular 2018 record N/O/I/S/E to a close, but he’s not going out without a bang. Today, the DIY veteran is releasing a dark, surreal video for N/O/I/S/E highlight “Bonesaw,” a sparse, two-minute assault of undulating buzzsaw synths and his trademark guttural cadences. Befitting such a track, the “Bonesaw” video is demented and transfixing: inspired by the Lithuanian festival Ta Terjast, in which people wear masks and “chase away” winter, the “Bonesaw” video paints a hazy vision of a post-apocalyptic future where the earth is raw and rotting, and the few remaining humans are desperate to survive. Watch “Bonesaw” above.
Ghostemane tours Europe early 2020. Find the dates here, and details of his upcoming heavy metal comic here.
