NEOANDERTALS recently posted the video for the title track of the band's latest CD, "Neanderthals Were Master Butchers", on YouTube. Watch the clip below.
Commented the band: "This video takes us into the world beyond the concept described on the NEOANDERTALS album 'Neanderthals Were Master Butchers'. That LP was all about the Neanderthals and the rising of the undead neo-Neanderthal menace. But what happens when the neo-Neanderthals have put an end to mankind? The Neanderthals believed that the spirits of the dead, whose body would not be defleshed, will come back to haunt the living. Therefore the annihilators from the last primate wars will make sure that every single carrion in this post-survival world is freed from its flesh. Old motors and butchering devices are robustly reused by the semi-intelligent neo-Neanderthal zombies to smash the leftovers into a utter mess of marrow and flesh. Every piece of working machinery decorated with the skulls of sapiens. Scenes of skinned carcasses stripped of meat mixed with clips of the band performing."
The concert footage in the clip was captured on May 18, 2006 at Rock Café, Tallinn, Estonia.
"Neanderthals Were Master Butchers" was recorded on July 3, 2006 at Matrix Studios in Tallinn, Estonia. The band put the finishing touches on the CD in August 2006. Mixing and mastering was handled by NEOANDERTALS mainman Rain Pohlak. It is the first and last NEOANDERTALS album to feature drummer Roland Seer, who has since been replaced by female drummer Sandra Vungi.
"Neanderthals Were Master Butchers" was made available exclusively in the Estonian market on February 17 through Heli Records. A worldwide version of "Neanderthals Were Master Butchers" is pressed and is due shortly via Forensick Music.
