Canadian progressive djent act Oni enjoyed a banner year in 2016 with the arrival of their Ironshore disc, supporting the album on big ticket tours, landing slots with Children of Bodom and Max & Iggor Cavalera separately. After getting a boost from Lamb of God singer Randy Blythe at Ozzfest Meets Knotfest, the two camps have continued their relationship as Blythe has been featured in the music video for Oni's "The Only Cure."

The song is packed with jagged, down-tuned rhythms with intermittent tapping melodies on guitar or the peculiar "xylosynth." As for the video (premiered by Billboard), it's not for the queasy as a helpless victim lies strapped to a table and is forced to endure brutal methods of torture from a deranged captor. With chains suspended overhead, the scene is grim enough, but only gets worse when the confined man is pierced in the torso with a power drill.

If you thought that was the worst form of punishment this poor man can endure, think again! Remember those chains we mentioned? It turns out there's a gruesome use for them as attached hooks are inserted into each of his sides, which then rip his abdomen apart when pulled as he screams in anguish.

"What a super creepy video," Blythe exclaimed. "Horror fans will love it — the production is Hollywood film-quality. It looks like something out of a SAW or Hostel movie. I had a lot of fun with the Oni guys recording this track, and it's cool to see the music set to such dramatic scenery. Nightmares..." Vocalist Jake Oni said the song is "one of the stronger songs on the album. It's a good representation of our current sound and where we will be going."
