There's nothing more metal than shooting a music video in 100 degree-plus heat in the Arizona summer.

That's exactly what local metal band Hemoptysis did for their new clip, "M.O.D.," off their debut full-length album, Misanthropic Slaughter. The video was shot this past September at an abandoned metal warehouse in Vail and was directed by Sean Sinerius and Robert Jaime of Big Shot Studios. It may be a simple performance piece, but it looks crisper, cleaner, and glossier that what you might've expected from a metal band. (Check out our Sound Off review of the video from Stefan Pruett of Peachcake.)

"We hope people will be entertained by the video and get a visual idea in their heads behind our audio recording," says singer/guitarist Masaki Murashita. "Our music is a buffet of metal. We have influces in thrash metal, death metal, melodic death metal and black metal. What you see in this video is what you can expect to see from us live, only you probably won't have to bake in an oven like we did for this video."

Murashita says the inspiration behind the song comes from a bad dream he had, in which he was offered everlasting life in exchange for killing someone.

"We hope people get a release of anger from this song," Murashita says. "Everyone has anger, but people deal with it in different ways. Fans of heavy metal usually release their anger by listening to music like this. This is a song about killing, so it should be a natural way to let out some aggression, especially in a mosh pit."

Check out the band when they perform at Chasers Bar & Night Club in Scottsdale this Saturday, November 5, and find lyrics for the song, plus the video, after the jump.

M.O.D.

Awaken from a deep sleep
I've got a crucial mission
I heard someone
Someone's tormented scream

A stray dead soul
I heard its one last hope
I will grant his wish
Barter away myself to live

On the prowl for you to kill
Your shadow is fading out
As I get close to you
Your life is in my grasp
Feeling a thrill to torment you
I won't stop haunting you
No matter how hard you try
You will die by my hand
This is your fate

Shrouding you into the darkness
I'll gain perpetual life. This is the wage of sin
Abandon you beyond the tomb like you were never born
You wish this were a nightmare
I don't care what you feel
All I want to see is you dead
No remorse, I can't go back and live my life
I am a merchant of death

As I choke you and evanesce
Your soul won't remain
I will crave your life
In the name of death

Buried alive
Brutally beaten
Either way you will die
Your life is all in vain

All I want to see is slaughtered flesh
Mangled till your breath is gone
I'd never let you slip so quick
I feel like the devil
Expose your crimson fluids
I'll drown you in your own blood
Taste this endless pain
I'll make passage slow into eternity

Shrouding you into the darkness
I'll gain perpetual life. This is the wage of sin
Abandon you beyond the tomb like you were never born
You wish this were a nightmare
I don't care what you feel
All I want to see is you dead
No remorse, I can't go back and live my life
I am a merchant of death

Shrouding you into the darkness
I'll gain perpetual life. This is the wage of sin
Abandon you beyond the tomb like you were never born
You wish this were a nightmare
I don't care what you feel
All I want to see is you dead
No remorse, I can't go back and live my life
I am a merchant of death

Excellent video. You guys must have been boiling in that metal sauna. Love the guitar riffs. Fantastic fingerwork and the drummer kept precise rhythm. Great work, I am impressed! \m/
