The Slayer song “South of Heaven” is the latest metal song to get the AI music video treatment, and damn does it look bad ass!
We have been treated to a lot of incredible AI music videos as of lately. All of these videos have been captivating in one way or another; there are dream-like videos such as Metallica’s “Enter Sandman,” and surreal videos like Tool’s “Lateralus.” There has also been the gory and horrifying Cannibal Corpses’ “Hammer Smashed Face.” More recently, we shared an AI generated music video for Slipknot’s “Psychosocial,” as well as some photos involving an AI trying to interpret Slipknot masks.
When it comes to this latest video, like past videos of this sort, an AI will pull together imagery based off what is being said in a given song. The imagery that makes up the AI generated music video for Slayer’s “South of Heaven” is sinister looking as hell; landscapes of torment, decaying people and blood red skies make up good chunks of the music video. It looks like the apocalypse is taking place.
