Thrash metal icons, Megadeth, have unveiled a video for their latest single, Lying In State.
The video shows the bands mascot, Vic Rattlehead, stalking through a cemetery in a bid to rescue a captive boy, mimicking the bleak tone of the track. The track itself is taken from the bands 2016 album, Dystopia, and is filmed by the director of their Conquer or Die video, Leo Liberti.
“When we were on tour in São Paulo in 2016, we filmed the ‘Conquer or Die’ video,” Dave Mustaine told Rolling Stone. “We were so impressed with Brazilian award-winning director Leo Liberti, that we had him do the ‘Lying in State’ video as well. We had several friends and fans of the band, as well as the production crew, play roles in the video. Huge thanks goes to [Megadeth lead guitarist] Kiko Loureiro for introducing us to Leo. I especially like how bad ass Vic was with the sword. Who knew?”
