Corrections House premiere video for "Hoax the System"
New band featuring members of Neurosis, Eyehategod, Yakuza, and Nachtmystium
Corrections House is the kind of new supergroup (no, wait, they’re calling themselves a collective) that will instantly get your attention. After all, when some of the coolest, most creative individuals in extreme metal get together, such as Mike IX Williams (Eyehategod), Scott Kelly (Neurosis), Sanford Parker (Nachtmystium), and Bruce Lamont (Yakuza), the mind boggles at the kind of music they’ll come up with.
Not much was known about the project when it was announced a month ago, but now they’ve released a video for a track called “Hoax the System”, which has premiered at Pitchfork, which turns out to be a savage, primal, surprisingly minimalist arrangement, thudding drums and martial, industrial sounding guitars providing a backdrop for Williams’ lyrics, which he spews like spoken word poetry. No indication has been given as to who directed the clip – we’d like to give credit where credit is due – but it’s a beautifully shot black and white piece, and is a tantalizing sample of what's to come from this band.
