World Under Blood (ex-CKY, etc.) have released the music video for their song “Into The Arms Of Cruelty” below. The bands Deron Miller commented on the Shan Dan directed clip:
“Violence towards children is an appalling, disgusting and unfortunately a rampant occurrence amongst millions of households. World Under Blood will always campaign to bring harsh reality straight to your senses, no matter how ugly and offensive, to bring awareness to its existence. Any misunderstanding that we condone any kind of despicable behavior like the variety found in this music video is false and idiotic.”

“As the loss of our brother Paul Gray is still very fresh for us in the Slipknot family, this new development has us all in a state of anger and sadness. The fact that this person took advantage of our brother’s illness while he was in a position to help others has outraged everyone in our family.
We can only hope that justice will be served so this can NEVER happen to anyone else ever again! Our thoughts go out to the families of the other victims. We plan to cooperate as much as we possibly can to ensure this tragedy is never repeated, and to make sure this man pays for what he has done.
