"Regresando Odio" ("Returning the Hate"), the new video from ASESINO — the death metal/grindcore project featuring ex-FEAR FACTORY/BRUJERIA guitarist Dino Cazares and STATIC-X bassist Tony Campos (on bass/vocals) — will receive its MTV2 debut on this weekend's edition of "Headbanger's Ball", which is scheduled to air Saturday, June 24 beginning at 10:00 p.m. "This will mark the first time in MTV history to broadcast a music video by a Mexican death metal/grindcore group with all lyrics sung in Spanish!" ASESINO claim in a press release. "Past Latin influences have aired previously, like SHAKIRA, PAULINA RUBIO, and RICKY MARTIN.... but never until now ASESINO takes your heart out and shows it to you."
The "Regresando Odio" clip was directed by John Buchanan of Demon Video.
As previously reported, Cazares will be appearing on this weekend's edition of MTV2's "Headbanger's Ball" as part of a discussion panel on heavy metal "hot topics," including the Sharon Osbourne vs. IRON MAIDEN fiasco, heavy metal reality shows, the state of metal, and metal blogs. Other musicians slated to appear are Al Jourgensen (MINISTRY), Trevor Phipps (UNEARTH), and Mercedes Lander (KITTIE). Also scheduled to air during the program's second hour at 11:30 p.m. EST is a 30-minute "Stage Fright" special dedicated to MOTÖRHEAD. Culled from the spectacular DVD of the same title (released earlier this year on SPV), the program contains a healthy selection of MOTÖRHEAD favorites along with some backstage interview footage of Lemmy and the band.
