Crushing Australian technical deathcore group XENOBIOTIC have released a guitar playthrough video for their song “The Gift of Fire” today at Gear Gods. The track is from their sickeningly brutal 2018 full length Prometheus.
The video sees the band’s guitarists significantly upping the the physical challenges required by playing their already blisteringly technical music by eating Carolina Reaper peppers while simultaneously attempting to perfectly execute the playing of the song. The results are highly entertaining.
XENOBIOTIC commented, “We take “suffering for art” to a whole new level, by undertaking the ridiculously stupid challenge of performing the technically relentless riffs in “The Gift Of Fire” while bearing the 2.2 Million Scoville intensity of the infamous Carolina Reaper, currently holding the record for the world’s hottest chilli. The result is three minutes of completely hideous, immensely hilarious and thoroughly entertaining agony.
Catch us with Zeolite in venues across Australia on “The Death Cult Tour”.
Disclaimer: A spokesperson from the band has confirmed that this chilli should not be consumed for the sake of light hearted fun. Consuming the Carolina Reaper has caused a number of health problems among particular individuals and frankly, the fact that it even exists is a testament to humanity’s darkest and most sadistic instincts.”
