"Mastication" is a song written and recorded by Devil Child, which is both the alter ego and solo project for Marco Simmer. Confirmed as the second single for his third studio album, Episode 3 - Morbid Blade with a Cute Smile, it became available for online streaming on June 12, 2014, two days after the actual CD was released.

Music videoEdit

Marco had filmed a video with Shawn Crahan (of Slipknot and Dirty Little Rabbits fame). The official music video premiered on June 13, 2014. The video focuses predominately on a high school student who issues a death match to a gang that he was once a part of, in order to be reunited with a girl that was held prisoner by said group. Throughout the scenario, there are shots of Simmer (as the "Devil Child") sitting in a "reverse" throne room with a quartet of females surrounding him, all of whom wearing the exact same mask.
