Aminals Streaming New Animated Video “Bitchcraft”

By dhmn On February 28th, 2015

Aminals a metal outfit hailing from Boston, Massachusetts is streaming a new animated video for the song “Bitchcraft” below. The track is taken from Animals’ 2014-release “Dead Air”.

States guitarist Ilya Podolskiy about the video: “We always wanted to have an animated video but it’s a concept that can easily become too “cheesy”. I came across the talented Crystal Araiza’s artwork and and it was the most unique work I’d seen in a while. We got together to discuss concepts and ‘Bitchcraft’ just seemed like a natural fit with her style. The video is about this little gremlin who we come across that can generate these little flowers from its body. After multiple attempts of trying to present and “shower” us with these flowers, it grows tired of our rejection. It then turns into a monster and decapitates us. Ya know, simple basic stuff.”
