ANTHRAX "Blood Eagle Wings" Music Video is Epic (NSFW)
Anthrax went all out with the budget for their new music video, "Blood Eagle Wings," directed by Jack Bennett. The video also features a cameo from actor James Duval of Donnie Darko fame. The video premiered on Rolling Stone and Scott Ian explained the concept of the video:
"Any great city, whether it's London, Rome, Paris, New York, Los Angeles — these cities are alive because of how many people were killed to make these cities what they are, how much blood was spilled over time," says Ian of the theme of "Blood Eagle Wings."
"We created this torture chamber, sitting below this horrible king's hall," says Bennett of the video's setting. "This guy gets to play with his toys and look through the grate in the floor and see this group of people that he's essentially crushing. The idea is that this power is built on top of these people. It's brutal and there's a lot of amazing torture gags happening, but it all serves this concept that progress is brutal. Civilizations progress in a way that is violent."
