"Fresh off riding a tidal wave of praise for their 2014 self released album, Dead Air, Aminals delivers a music video for the track Bitchcraft. Much like the rest of the LP, Bitchcraft is a hurricane of post hardcore, and punk performed to absolute perfection. Artist, Crystal Araiza, captures the feel of the album in a flickering jumble of charcoal and ink animation. While Aminals may technically still be a local Boston band, they've managed to breathe fresh air into the stagnant metal genre, and are poised to be one of the breakout artists of 2015. Seriously, pick up Dead Air, it might just make your year."

"The last time I got to write about my favorite debut album of 2014, I was explaining to you why you needed to listen to the debonaire gentlemen who go by the name Aminals. Their energy and unique approach to chaotic metal keeps me going back to Dead Air every day since it released last month. The band have since released a pretty hilarious music video for one of the standout tracks on the album in Dirty Habits. Check the video, as always, after the jump. The video features no actual nudity or violence but is probably still NSFW. Dudes gyrating in hot pants and females getting acquainted with their own mammary glands could get the office Internet police on your case so be warned. The general debauchery and raconteur behaviour on display suits the song perfectly, with many popular 'Dirty Habits' exhibited. The play on words in the song title took me until now to understand so give yourself a hand if you click first time." - MM of HEAVYBLOGISHEAVY
"It is no secret I am an enormous fan of Aminals. The Massachusetts raconteurs entered our ear holes with last year's terrific Dead Air before releasing an excellent video for my own favourite track from the album, Dirty Habits. Their unpredictable songs and barrage of riffs, licks and hooks is addictive as hell; I can't stop listening to this mother. We now, to share with you, an animated video for the albums first real track, Bitchcraft. Catch this cartoon caper after the jump. At just over a minute and a half long, the song and video both manage to cram in more twists and turns than a M. Night movie. Earlier today I spoke to Ilya, responsible for the guitars and Scotch drinking in Aminals. He shed some light on the ideas behind the video and what the damn thing is actually about: "We always wanted to have an animated video, but it's a concept that can easily become too 'cheesy'. I came across the talented Crystal Araiza's artwork and and it was the most unique work I'd seen in a while. We got together to discuss concepts and Bitchcraft just seemed like a natural fit with her style. The video is about this little gremlin who we come across that can generate these little flowers from its body. After multiple attempts of trying to present and 'shower' us with these flowers, it grows tired of our rejection. It then turns into a monster and decapitates us. Ya know, simple basic stuff." Grab Dead Air here so Aminals can keep making music and music videos. It is the sane thing to do."
