Megadeth Conclude Their Violent Dystopian Animated Tale With “Dystopia” Video


Megadeth have premiered another animated music video, this one being for the title track to their new album, “Dystopia“, which itself will be released tomorrow, January 22nd. Band frontman Dave Mustaine told of the clip:

“We had met with a guy in England, and I basically talked to him about this dystopian city that I had kind of visualized. You see all these movies like Armageddon, Independence Day, 12 Monkeys, Planet of the Apes and stuff, and there’s always a moral at the end of the story: If you stand up for what’s right, you won’t have to give in to a dystopian world. It’s just one of those things we grew up in. Explaining that concept to the artist — I thought he got what I was saying pretty clearly.”

The clip concludes their two-part story arc that began with their video for “The Threat Is Real“.
