Mushroomhead pay tribute to The Evil Dead in gruesome NSFW video

Mushroomhead have released a video for an alternate take on their track We Are The Truth.

The song will appear on the band’s upcoming DVD titled Volume III, which will arrive on August 17 via Megaforce Records. It’ll feature more than 90-minutes of material, including new music videos, backstage footage and previously unseen content.

The video was created by Mushroomhead and filmed in their home town of Cleveland, Ohio, and is a nod to classic 1981 horror flick The Evil Dead. It also stars Unsaid Fate vocalist Jackie Laponza.

Drummer and Mushroomhead founding member Steve "Skinny" Felton says: “As you can imagine, the entire Mushroomhead camp is heavily into horror films. So, we decided to do an Evil Dead tribute. 

“Dr. F, Stitch and myself were responsible for all set designs. I think the end result is very creepy and a lot of fun.”

A full tracklist along with other Volume III details will be revealed in due course. Find the cover art below.

Mushroomhead will head out on the Summer Of Screams tour across North America from August.
