It’s related to their upcoming horror film Studio 666, as I understand it. The movie looks terrible, but hopefully the fun, cheesy kind of terrible that will be enjoyable to watch. We’ll find out soon! In the meantime, enjoy this, it’s crispy.
This reminds me of Dave Grohl’s Probot side project from years ago, which is also great fun to listen to.
Anything where I can see the zipper on the monster makes me smile.
Sorry to be the metal pedant, but that’s Thrash, not Death Metal.
Let’s see…blast beats, down-tuned, growled vocals, lyric material related to blood/death/derangement. It’s not Morbid Angel, but it could reasonably be categorized a death metal, a sub-genre of thrash with typically more gruesome or death-focused lyrics. At least 80s style, which is clearly the vibe this is going for.
Hmm… if Studio 666 is no good and you’d still like to watch a horror film with “Studio” in the title, do yourself a solid and watch Berberian Sound Studio. What a fun film.
Fighting Foo since 1997.
I’m all for the delightful nerds in the Foo Fighters making a cheesy horror movie.
I’m now even more in love with Dave Grohl. It feels like they had so much fun doing this. The lyrics seem like they were going for every cheesy trope out there, and I’m here for it.
This lovely and truly moving. I see nothing wrong here. Deep lyrics. /s
