Doug directed the latest music video for Death Metal icons Cannibal Corpse and Metal Blade Records for the title track of their album, ‘Red Before Black’. According to Metal Blade, the video is the band’s most gruesome and bloody video in their nearly 30-year history! Sakmann also created and coordinated all of the SPFX for the project.


For a little under three decades, Cannibal Corpse has been decimating eardrums with their iconic death metal. The band’s latest record, 2017’s Red Before Black, is a powerhouse of unrelenting brutality from beginning to end. Among the record’s many devastating songs, the self-titled second single is easily one of the most recognizable; and it is with that in mind that we are very excited to premiere the band’s newest (and incredibly gory) music video, “Red Before Black.”

From the mind of horror FX veteran Doug Sakmann, “Red Before Black” is a delightfully gruesome experience that all Cannibal Corpse fans will dig. Starring adult performers Nadia White and Talia Satana, as well as actresses Sonja Century, Kim Reo, and actor Alex Webster (not the band’s same-named bassist!), the video is jam-packed with over the top violent kill scenes. If you’re ready for a wild ride of carnage and adrenaline, then check out the video in its entirety below!
