"Dead Embryonic Cells" is Sepultura's second single, as well as the second of three to be released from the album Arise. A music video for the song was produced and can be found on the VHS release Third World Chaos,[1] which itself was released on DVD as part of Chaos DVD.[2] The video features footage of the band performing in the wilderness accompanied by imagery from the album.[3]

At this stage in their career the band had recorded little material to be used as B-sides, which is why the Arise singles are so similar. This single and the next, "Under Siege (Regnum Irae)" have exactly the same artwork (a detail of the Arise album cover artwork by Michael Whelan) and B-sides.

The song appears on the Liberty City Hardcore station in both Grand Theft Auto IV: The Lost and Damned[4] and Grand Theft Auto: Episodes From Liberty City.[5] The station notably features Max Cavalera as the radio DJ.
