Sure, horror and metal have always walked hand-in-hand. Forget the “Thriller” video; at the top of my list of horror-themed music videos is Black Label Society’s “Stillborn”. (Of course Doctor Gash has been bleeding Black Label for a long time… what’s your favorite horror-themed music video?) But today we discovered a zombie-themed music video that is far from a metal song. Rock band The Active Set has released a bloodbath of a video for their song “Famous for Dying”.
The Active Set is obviously a band that is not so self-absorbed that they need to have their faces incessantly shown in their videos. In fact, basically the entire second half of this work is simply a zombie feeding frenzy on the band. Starring Matthew Stolarz, Wayne Russell, Michael Castro, Shelby Lindley, Tristin Gorrell, Melanie Russell, Walter Phelan, Damien Stolarz, Adam Stolarz, Jeremy Stolarz and directed by Lior Molcho with F/X by Walter Phelan, the “Famous for Dying” video is nothing if not unique.
Carrying a catchy tune, some decent zombie make-up, and truly impressive zombie feasting F/X, this is a video fans of the shuffling dead with a sense of humor will appreciate. Scroll down and enjoy, and for more stop by and visit The Active Set on Facebook.
