Youth Code releases NSFW/NSFL videoYouth Code has released the intensely dark and disturbing (read: Not Safe For Work/Not Safe For Life) video for the track “Consuming Guilt,” from the duo’s newest EP A Place to Stand, now available through Dais Records. The duo paired with director Grant Singer for the project; “We wanted to use this video as an opportunity to show the public the inhumane practices of animal testing,” Singer said in a press release. The video recreates animal testing practices, using those procedures on human subjects. Youth Code will be touring this fall on select dates with Skinny Puppy, VNV Nation, and Haujobb.

    Yawn. Skinny Puppy lite, being edgy while doing the exact same thing tens of people before you did… the video is really lazy.

      Thank you for the comment, MisterX.
      There is a definite similarity in style and tone in Youth Code’s music, one that many have attributed to the sound of Skinny Puppy in the ’80s. Naturally, the video bears that same similarity, with elements of MINISTRY’s “Stigmata” thrown in (the band being featured performing in night vision). I’m not sure I’d call it lazy as much as it’s the fact that there is a whole new generation of bands that are drawing on the influence of the past but have yet to achieve a style and vision that is their own and more than merely the sum of those influences.

        I didn’t really mean the music, their music style is quite fresh to me, actually, blending oldschool post-industrial and newer influences. It’s the video with pointless cheap shock value and nothing new. I’ve seen this exact thing done many times before, and there’s a new video or performance art piece that overlaps animal experiments with humans every half a year. It really just looks like a desperate attempt at shocking people with 0 effort.

      • Ilker Yücel says:

        Oh, I understand… my point was that the music and the visuals are part-and-parcel; with so much similarity to old-school sounds, it adds to the disappointment since the visuals also bear more resemblance to what has already been done. But then, I’m not personally a fan of Youth Code, and the video has done little to change that opinion. But if I’m fated to be in the minority, so be it.
