Los Angeles based Thrash band Three Thirteen, featuring Randy Weitzel (In This Moment, Blackfall) have released their horror themed music video for “Brain Damage (Undead)”. Originally premiered on The Huffington Post, the track is from the band’s upcoming album Dawn of the Shred which is slated for release later this year, and the video was directed by renowned music video director Matt Zane (Zakk Wylde, John 5, Run DMC, Orgy, Dope, Wayne Static, Blackfall). The album is available for pre-order now on Phantom Republic’s website.
Two things that shaped and influenced my style beginning when I was younger were thrash metal and horror movies from the eighties. For the ‘Brain Damage’ video, I wanted to capture the humor and campy vibe of movies like Return of the Living Dead and Evil Dead 2. I came up with the concept to compliment the music, and Matt took my ideas, ran with them, and made it all happen with ease.” Weitzel adds, “The album Dawn of the Shred is influenced by my favorite Metallica, Megadeth, and Anthrax albums. Early thrash was melodic, especially vocally, and I wanted to do something that pays tribute to that era – catchy vocal melody hooks, shredding guitars and songs about zombies and aliens. – Randy Weitzel (Vocals, Guitar)
