1,000 cocks, Metallica are the stars of Wolf-Face's new video for "Death to Wolf Poseurs" — watch (VERY NSFW)

Do. Not. Watch this at work.

Wolf-Face's relationship with Metallica is famously...tense. It has reached a new level in the St. Pete punk band's new video for "Death To Wolf Poseurs."

Frontman Michael J. Wolf has compared the three-minute clip — directed by Dan D — to the work of another D, Leo D (aka Leonardo Da Vinci).

"Adoring fans often ask Michael J. Wolf, 'Are you the last true artist?,'" it says in a press release from the band. "He is quick to explain that, in fact, there are still a few other great artists out there who, much like him, rival the greats like Leonardo Da Vinci."

The release goes on to talk about canvas, technology, typewriters and paintbrushes before explaining the premise of the clip, which takes place within Metallica's own music video for "St. Anger."

"Dan D has created what many are claiming to be the Mona Lisa of the modern age," the band says. "On his quest to bring his mental masterwork to the masses, he tagged along with a rock band that decided to perform a cover version of this hit Wolf-Face song at a dangerous prison to the misfits of our society; seasoned prison inmates."

Wolf-Face wants fans to see how the criminal justice system is a futile solution to a systematic problem. The band hopes that Dan D's clip inspires lawmakers who "have the power to right this wrong." Michael J. Wolf is not oblivious that the visual has a few distractions that might get in the way of the message, however.

"With this work of art falling under the microscope of those in power, there is a real possibility of forcing change that may help to heal our divided nation," he wrote. "But most importantly, and what we can never lose sight of, is that there are a bunch of grossly drawn cocks and balls."
