Damn, This Piping Hot Volcano B-Roll Is Metal As Hell

Video: As arguably the world's most active volcano, Hawaii's Kīlauea presents a unique opportunity for researchers who want to observe the Earth's geologic processes in real-time. Even more importantly, as an erupting volcano, footage of Kīlauea is gnarly as hell. Image: US Geological Survey

This week, the United States Geological Survey demonstrated that gnarliness by sharing over 10 minutes of footage filmed at the lava lake currently inside Kīlauea's Halemaʻumaʻu Crater.

I mean, just look at this.

Unfortunately, as supplemental footage, the USGS video lacks an appropriate soundtrack. Fortunately, Slayer's "Raining Blood" can easily be found online.
