This October, Daily Grindhouse is celebrating the collision between music and horror with a series of posts under the banner of Rocktoberfest 2019. There will be daily features, recurring bits, and some special posts around the subject.
Mourning Jams is your daily kick off every morning with a different music video that has some horror elements to it. Crossing genres, decades, and more, it’s a good way to get in the spooky mood this Halloween month.
“Opposites attract.” This is a well-known adage that has been in art for centuries, whether it’s Romeo & Juliet, Much Ado About Nothing, WEST SIDE STORY, BEAUTY AND THE BEAST, POSSESSION, TROMEO & JULIET, Paula Abdul & MC Skat Kat, and more. It’s a simple idea of complementary (if opposing) aspects joining to make a better whole. This classic theme gets a fun update in 2018’s “Demons Are A Girl’s Best Friend” by German heavy metal group, Powerwolf.
From the 2018 album, The Sacrament Of Sin, “Demons Are A Girl’s Best Friend” is unusually poppy and fun for German power metal, but nonetheless works as a dark ode to all things wicked and sinful that help people break free from the chains of suppression and routine. The music video, directed by Matteo Vdiva Fabbiani and Mattia Michael Cavaliere, takes the star-crossed romance vibe and travels where many (mostly Italian) films have traveled before: nunsploitation!
Six nuns (Francesca Peruzzi, Elisa Sutti, Daniela Caputo, Giulia Colombo, Nikita Pelizon, and Sara Federico) are unable to resist the siren song of demons (Jeez Kult and Hervè De Zulian) and their growing lustful needs can only be best expressed through dance. “Demons Are A Girl’s Best Friend” is stylish, profane, fun, and a lot more upbeat than a lot of the dirges coming out of Eastern European metal. Check it out!
Tune in tomorrow and every morning in October for a new music video to help start the day on the frightening foot as Halloween swiftly approaches.
