L.A. thrashers Three Thirteen – who feature In This Moment’s Randy Weitzel on guitar and vocals – have a new music video out for their song “Brain Damage (Undead)”. The frontman says of the Matt Zane (Zakk Wylde, John 5, Run DMC, Orgy, Dope, Wayne Static, Blackfall) directed clip and their forthcoming debut, Dawn Of The Shred:
“Two things that shaped and influenced my style beginning when I was younger were thrash metal and horror movies from the eighties. For the ‘Brain Damage’ video, I wanted to capture the humor and campy vibe of movies like Return of the Living Dead and Evil Dead 2. I came up with the concept to compliment the music, and Matt took my ideas, ran with them, and made it all happen with ease. The album Dawn of the Shred is influenced by my favorite Metallica, Megadeth, and Anthrax albums. Early thrash was melodic, especially vocally, and I wanted to do something that pays tribute to that era – catchy vocal melody hooks, shredding guitars and songs about zombies and aliens.”
Dawn Of The Shred will be released later this year, with pre-orders available now through Phantom Republic.
