“It’s amazing to see this all finally coming to fruition as Jvstin [Whitney, writer] and I have worked VERY hard on this film. After our production facilities were flooded during Hurricane Harvey, we weren’t sure the movie would come out, but fortunately you can’t kill metal!

To have so many metal legends involved in this project is such dream come true. Tom, Randy and David kill it in the movie. It was so cool for Philip to write and record Tom‘s theme song for us. Philip and Kate Richardson are EASILY two of the coolest, most beautiful people to walk the planet.

Norman [Reedus] was absolutely a blast to work with. It doesn’t take but a three-second Google search to see that Norman is a total metalhead, having performed on stage with Anthrax and riding bikes with Marilyn Manson. I’ve been a fan of his since he was mopping the prison floor in the movie ‘8mm‘ and the guy is one of the most naturally talented actors on the planet.

This is a film made FOR fans of horror and metal BY fans of horror and metal and it was important that the film and soundtrack reflected that. From having Philip do Tom‘s theme song to having ’80s metal legends HELSTAR do the music for the band in the movie.

If you grew up watching ’80s splatter flicks while blasting ‘Rust In Peace‘ and ‘Seasons In The Abyss‘, this movie was made for you!”

In addition to Anselmo and Helstar, members of Oceans Of Slumber, Disartica and more also contributed to the film’s soundtrack.
