Megadeth’s “Night Stalkers” Music Video Gives Birth to Vic Rattlehead in an Homage to ‘Hellraiser’!

Thrash metal legends Megadeth have released a steady flow of music for over 40 years. Unfortunately, the last two releases have been marred by several unavoidable hiccups including COVID-19, founder Dave Mustaine‘s battle with throat cancer, and the replacement of bassist David Ellefson.

Thankfully, the brutal six-year wait has come to an end with The Sick, the Dying… and the Dead!, their hotly anticipated 16th LP following 2016’s Dystopia that will release on September 2nd, 2022, via UMe.

Featuring twelve new tracks, The Sick, The Dying… And The Dead! will be released on CD, vinyl, and cassette, as well as digitally through all online partners and can be pre-ordered/pre-saved, HERE. There will also be a limited deluxe edition 2LP, 12-track album pressed on 180g black vinyl housed in a numbered gatefold jacket with a 12×24 lyrics/credits insert, a lenticular vinyl lithograph and a bonus 7-inch featuring “We’ll Be Back” and the unreleased b-side “The Conjuring (Live).” The limited deluxe edition can only be purchased via MEGADETH’s official online store, through Sound of Vinyl, and uDiscover, and can be pre-ordered HERE.

Celebrating their return, Megadeth previously shared the very first single off the album, “We’ll Be Back”, which came accompanied by a bloody wartime music video that offers up the origins of Vic Rattlehead for the first time ever.

Produced by Dave Mustaine, today the band releases Night Stalkers: Chapter II ft. Ice T, the second installment of a trilogy of videos to be released in conjunction with the release of the new album The Sick, The Dying… and The Dead!.

It features the birth of Vic Rattlehead in a direct homage to Clive Barker’s Hellraiser!
