Bloodbath praise 80s slasher flicks in new “Chainsaw Lullaby” video

Posted by on October 18, 2018

Bloodbath have premiered a video for the song “Chainsaw Lullaby.” The track is taken from the supergroup’s new album The Arrow of Satan Is Drawn, which is scheduled to arrive on October 26th. The Ash Pears directed clip takes you back in time to the old-school VHS days as the visuals will remind you of classic 80’s slasher films.

Guitarist/vocalist Anders “Blakkheim” Nystrom explained:

“I wanted to keep it really simple and uncomplicated whilst retaining an evil groovy drive to make the song engage in headbanging action and sing along exercises. Having started a ‘red’ thread, I then locked in the chainsaw concept as a dual tribute to the Boss HM-2 guitar pedal sound as well as my love for the horror slasher genre and had both the music and lyrics going at the same time. I’ve always been a fan of lyrical paradoxes and the song title was just waiting to happen.”
