Crave is amped to premiere a truly fucked-up blast of NSFW surrealism from industrial punk trio Anwar Sadat. Their debut video pairs with the title track on their recently released Obedience EP available now on Sick Room Records.

“This is the first music video from Anwar Sadat; shot during an intense few hours beneath a massive warehouse in Louisville, Kentucky,” explains bassists and vocalist, Shane Wesley. “Inspired in equal parts by Kenneth Anger and Videodrome, the video for ‘Obedience’ turns the economy of war and cultural docility reflected in the lyrics into a kind of surrealist snuff film.”

In other words, you’re about to see a sadistically disturbing video in which a handful of naked girls wearing bloody masks of skeletons and assorted wildlife take chainsaws to each other and practice asphyxiation techniques.

 

Additionally, the band recently stopped by the Daytrotter studios in Rock Island, IL for a more downtempo, groove-driven interpretation of their songs. Check that out here.

Listen to more of Anwar Sadat on their Bandcamp page, and keep up with the band on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
