Anthrax’s Blood Eagle Wings Plays Like a Mini Horror Epic!


Around here we’re so happy that the band Anthrax is still alive and kicking. We’re also happy about their latest music video for the song “Blood Eagle Wings.”

Directed by Jack Bennett and clocking in at over 8 minutes long, “Blood Eagle Wings” appears on the band’s 11th LP, For All Kings.

We created this torture chamber, sitting below this horrible king’s hall,” Bennett tells Rolling Stone 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.

Dig on the video below.
