Austin, Texas traditional metal titans Ignitor unveiled the new music video for the song "Hatchet (The Ballad of Victor Crowley)," a song inspired by the Hatchet franchise and featured on the movie's soundtrack. From vocalist Jason McMaster's lyrical perspective the song is delivered through the eyes of Victor Crowley himself. Check out the video in the player above.
Hatchet director Adam Green comments "The first concert I ever went to was Dangerous Toys when they performed at Boston's Orpheum Theater back in 1989. From that moment on, Jason McMaster played a pivotal role in my life musically and I've followed everything he's ever done since. Almost thirty years later to be putting out Ignitor's 'Haunted By Rock N Roll' through my own sublabel ArieScope Records, with EMP Label Group, and for the band to have written the song 'Hatchet (The Ballad of Victor Crowley)' specifically for the latest entry in my Hatchet slasher film franchise...it is truly a dream come true. Ignitor represents everything that made me fall in love with metal to begin with."
Vocalist Jason McMaster added: "A killer old school heavy metal video in the style of late 80's bloody horror slasher films! This was a labor of love for blood and metal. I am proud of this moment, and very happy with the song we built for Adam's creation of the bloodiest freak of them all, the king of the swamp...Victor Crowley!"
Ignitor released their sixth full length album "Haunted By Rock & Roll" back in November 2017.
