MUSHROOMHEAD – “We Are The Truth”

Written by David Halbe

“We Are The Truth” is a twisted homage to the Evil Dead. The woman exposed to the book makes the video. A beauty laced with gore, her unusual movements are spellbinding.

The relationship between metal and horror has always been a match made in hell. The devil’s cord and a knife wielding killer in a mask. The idea has been growing steadily over the years and I believe a mainstream break is just around the corner.

In my mind, this relationship began during the ‘80s with artists contributing music on horror movie soundtracks. It was beneficial to both sides. Alice Cooper made a musical comeback on the heels of a song he contributed to a slasher film!  (Friday The 13th Part IV: Jason Lives)

This ideology continued with a string of movies based on the relationship between horror and metal: Rocktober Blood (1984), Trick or Treat (1986) and Black Roses (1988).

The whole concept seemingly culminated when heavy metal icon Rob Zombie directed his own horror flick, House Of 1000 Corpses. Although I loved the movie, I was honestly expecting my two favorite outcasts (horror and metal) to delve even deeper into the bloody muck but unfortunately it hasn’t happened until now….

Mushroomhead have always been a band on the rise. Their methodical climb to greatness has been long and hard fought. Hailing from Cleveland, Ohio and established in 1993, the band has released seven studio albums and a whopping 15 music videos. The latest effort from these masked creeps is “We Are The Truth” taken from their effort, The Righteous & the Butterfly (2014).

“We Are The Truth” is a twisted homage to the Evil Dead. The woman exposed to the book makes the video. A beauty laced with gore, her unusual movements are spellbinding.

The clips of the band, in full costume, bridges the gap between music and horror. A visual and audio pairing of the extreme. My favorite part of the video is when the woman is chained down in the fruit cellar. She truly is a beauty and a beast. The whole concept erupts into a bloody mess with multiple stabbings and limb dissection with an axe!

The seasons are changing and Halloween is right around the corner. Start your celebration early with the masked maniacs of Mushroomhead and their splatter tribute “We Are The Truth.” \m/
