There’s something unsettling about watching the video of Tim Lambesis’ arraignment yesterday. Watching the As I Lay Dying frontman’s reaction as the prosecuting attorney calmly details how he wanted his wife dead and meeting with an undercover detective with cash. And while there’s apparently audio of Lambesis, we can only speculate how everything looked when it went down. Actually, now we have a visual component thanks to Taiwanese company Tomo News. Their video reenacments of news events are always insane, and occasionally hysterical. This isn’t laugh out loud funny, but it is really surreal. Think about it – if someone told you last week that you’d be watching an animated Tim Lambesis pumping iron at the gym and plotting to kill his wife, you’d have told them to shut up and keep mourning Jeff Hanneman’s death.

Deftones have released a new video for “Swerve City,” and it’s an amazingly shot Western. In fact, the majority of the video consists of a girl riding a horse (not a white pony?) through a desert. In fact, towards the end of the video when you see a car, it’s a little bit jarring. Without giving the end of the video away, it’s a little surprising. Check out the video above, and if you’re in Europe, Asia, Australia or at the Orion Fest, see them live this Summer. The mostly international tour dates are after the jump. Read more »
It’s well known that Frankie Palmeri isn’t exactly the most well-liked frontman in metal. So while we wish no one any harm here at Metal Insider, we’re sure there are a few people who would want to see the Emmure frontman electrocuted onstage. Well those people are in luck, because now there’s video of exactly that happening.
Emmure were performing in Moscow, Russia yesterday (May 7) when Palmeri was electrocuted onstage, forcing the band to cut their set short. Fortunately, Palmeri wasn’t seriously hurt and is doing fine, posting the following tweets on his account:
“Sorry I almost literally died on stage tonight #Moscow. Getting zapped by 200 volts feels like shit. Ya almost got me tonight. #STILLALIVE
Haha already reading online that it was ‘karma’ haha. I guess Gino the TM for Chelsea also deserved it too since he got blasted right b4 me.”
While we’re glad to hear he’s ok after the incident, that doesn’t change the fact that video of it is now online. Watch fan filmed footage of Palmeri getting electrocuted for yourself above.

The Dillinger Escape Plan has released a lyric video for “Prancer,” and instead of making a typical boring lyric video, they’ve created something that could almost stand alone as its own video. It’s frenetic, with lots of jump cuts and movement, much like the song itself. Is this the band’s last album? Probably not, but it starts off with the dictionary definition of “swan song,” stating ‘a metaphorical phrase for a final gesture, effort or performance given just before death of retirement.”‘ And while the description is accompanied by a swan, the last third of the video features shots of a decomposing swan. No word on whether or not any swans were injured in the making of the video.
One of us is the Killer is released on May 14.
It’s a little less than a month until Queens of the Stone Age release their sixth studio album, Like Clockwork. And while we’ve already heard “My God is the Sun,” the band have unveiled a second song from the album via a very cool animated video. “I Appear Missing is an atmospheric, bluesy song that fits in with the imagery and past of the band. Given that Homme’s previous band Kyuss emerged from playing in deserts with generators hooked up, it’s fitting the video starts in a desert. As the unnamed protagonist in the video is pecked awake by a crow (not a crooked vulture?), his bloody and bandaged face and hands and the suit he’s wearing recall the black, red and white color scheme of Songs for the Deaf and the video for “Go With the Flow.” He eventually floats towards a city where he drops off a ledge, falling like the opening montage of Mad Men. According to Metal Sucks, this isn’t the full song, just a portion of it. We’re looking forward to hearing the rest of it, not to mention all of Like Clockwork, when it’s released on June 4th.
Back in February, The San Francisco Giants announced they were going to declare their May 3 game against the L.A. Dodgers as “Metallica Night.” Well last Friday was the day, and as promised, the members of Metallica were on hand. This included James Hetfield and Kirk Hammett performing the National Anthem, as well as Lars Ulrich throwing the first pitch. Don’t feel too bad if you weren’t in San Fran last Friday, for video of both has made its way online. Watch the Metallica guitarists perform the National Anthem above, while fan filmed footage of Ulrich throwing the first pitch can be seen below. Read more »

Anyone around in the early ’90s remembers Kriss Kross. The Atlanta-area duo, who were 12 and 13, had a massive hit with “Jump Jump” from their debut album, 1992′s Totally Krossed Out, an album that sold 4 million copies. The duo even inspired a mini-trend, with fans wearing their clothes backwards in an imitation of the two. After receiving word that Chris “Mac Daddy” Kelly died yesterday at the age of 34, deftones paid tribute to the band by coming out for an encore with their pants on backwards and playing some of “Jump Jump” before going into “Engine No. 9.”
Twelve Foot Ninja Gives Fans An Inside Look Behind Music Videos, Raises Over $50,000 Via Crowdfunding Campaign

When we spoke to Twelve Foot Ninja guitarist Steve “Stevic” MacKay last month, he noted how the group has always made an effort to add humor into its music videos. And recently, Stevic teamed up with Metal Injection to give fans an even deeper look behind the making of the Australian metal groups’ music videos.
In the feature video above, Stevic (who also directs all of the band’s videos) sheds light behind the inspiration behind the bizarre videos for songs like “Mother Sky” and “Coming For You,” and also shares some behind-the-scenes footage from their forthcoming video. As you may recall, that’s the video that will feature cameos from none other than Periphery, as well as a Penthouse Pet, Hollywood grade gore, a seven foot Alaskan brown bear, and a decapitated internet troll.
Speaking of the forthcoming video, you may also remember that Twelve Foot Ninja previously launched an online campaign to help fund the remaining production. Well, not only did the band reach their targeted goal, but was able to raise well over $50,000. That should ensure a pretty epic video from Stevic.
Watch Metal Injection’s feature video with Stevic giving an inside look behind videos created in support of its full-length Silent Machine (due out in the U.S. soon) above.

Swedish folk metal band Fejd are set to release their third full length, Nagelfar, on Napalm Records in July. The band, which is anchored by brothers Patrick and Niklas Rimmerfors, actually fall a little more on the folk side of the spectrum than the metal side, hence their usage of non-traditional instruments like the nyckelharpa, bouzouki and recorder. For the band’s first single from the new album, “Den Skimrande,” the band weaves a haunting melody around a video that sum up the nature mysticism of the band, with nymphs dancing around a fire in the wilderness interspersed with shots of the band.
Negelfar will be released on July 2 on Napalm Records.
