Track: Infecting the Crypts
Today I noticed that the video has been taken down by YouTube because of a copyright infringement claim by WMG (dead YouTube link here). My guess is the audio was detected by a software program and the video was automatically removed without manual review.
I’m proud of the video. And I’ve heard that the band likes it too. I think it’s in the label’s best interest to keep this video online. If they hired someone to make a music video for this song, it probably wouldn’t have received so many views.
My idea: Either (1) give me a license to use the song, or (2) I am happy to sign away the rights to this video to the band/label/whoever, at no cost. Consider it your music video.
I’m just a fan. I also consider myself the director and performer in what is arguably the most popular death metal music video in history! Lets keep it online. If you know anyone involved with WMG, Roadrunner Records, Suffocation, or the music industry in general, please forward this page to them.
PS- The video embedded above was just uploaded to DailyMotion. If they remove it, also try checking here, here, and here. But I’d rather the label embrace the video so I don’t have to go sneaking around from site to site.
PPPS- Here is the band’s biggest official music video. It has only been viewed 315,000 times. And I assume many of those views are because people saw my video and looked at the related videos.
UPDATE: It’s back!
