CONTRACULT Collective Face Off Against Their Vices In ‘Meek’ Video

One of our favorite industrial outfits CONTRACULT Collective returns with furious new single “Meek.”

The song’s accompanying NSFW video, filmed, directed, and edited by Steven Anthony, shows each member checking into a hotel room where they’re subjected to torture from vices, such as gluttony, greed, and drinking.

Watch the video below.

“Industrial music has always tried to push the envelope of shock and horror, both lyrically and visually,” Svart says. “Contracult does the same, but with purpose and humility. The song ‘Meek’ is about the vulnerability of addiction and mental health with the lack of accountability for one’s actions within this mental state.”

He continued,” Since there is nothing more horrific than one’s own personal demons, the band and Director Steven Roe wanted to present a narrative which visually displayed ours. You will see our friend and talented contortionist/dancer Brynn Route force us to enact our vices of novelty and overconsumption of food and alcohol in a vacant motel room. While the content is triggering, we hope it proves to be as equally provocative as it is grotesque. You’ve been warned…”

Watch the video below.

“Meek” follows previously released singles “Plunge” and Bad Brains cover “Sacred Love,” all of which will appear on CONTRACULT Collective’s debut album due in summer 2022.
