♫♪  Oozing Wound - “Diver”

Almost definitely conceived of from inside of a bong, Chicago thrash underlords Oozing Wound’s new video for “Diver” is the most pleasantly scummy five minutes you will have today: all seizure GIFs, transcendent headbanging, computer/infant/stuffed-animal wasting, kitchen grease, glow-eye skeletons, even a neon vaporizer Black Lodge portal to hell. You can smell the stale ash wafting off the video’s internet death trip, and it’s a righteous trip indeed.

Director Joe Martinez, Jr. also gives maybe the most concise director’s statement of the year: “If Trump becomes president we will all have to pay for YouTube videos.” Speak truth to power.
