This past February we finally saw the release of Adam Green’s fourth entry in the Hatchet series with Victor Crowley now on Blu-ray. And today we have some really special news as Green as just released an official new music video for the film!
The song is called “Hatchet (The Ballad of Victor Crowley)” and the band is called Ignitor. The track comes from the band’s recently released sixth LP “Haunted by Rock n’ Roll” in stores now via EMP Label Group and Ariescope Records.
Says Green, “The first concert I ever went to was Dangerous Toys when they performed at Boston’s Orpheum Theater back in 1989. From that moment on, Jason McMaster has played a pivotal role in my life, musically, and I’ve followed everything he’s ever done since. Almost thirty years later to be putting out IGNITOR’s “Haunted By Rock N Roll” through my own sublabel ArieScope Records, with EMP LABEL GROUP, and for the band to have written the song “Hatchet” (The Ballad of Victor Crowley)” specifically for the latest entry in my HATCHET slasher film franchise… it is truly a dream come true. IGNITOR represents everything that made me fall in love with metal to begin with.”
Ignitor vocalist Jason McMaster adds: “A killer old school heavy metal video in the style of late 80′s bloody horror slasher films! This was a labor of love for blood and metal. I am proud of this moment, and very happy with the song we built for Adam’s creation of the bloodiest freak of them all, the king of the swamp…Victor Crowley!”
Ariescope/EMP will release a limited edition 12” vinyl picture disc featuring the film’s main theme paired with “Sick Mind”, a brutal, rock-edged, hip-hop collaboration by Chino XL, Block McCloud, Poison Pen, and The Jokerr, produced by Anno Domini. The disc is tentatively due in summer 2018.
