Bul­letBelt Death­gasm (riSe of the BanShee, 2014)

Metal Hammer (UK) - - Horror Songs -

When writer and direc­tor Ja­son lei how­den needed a ti­tle track for Death­gasm — his 2015 heavy metal splat­ter com­edy – he turned to fel­low New Zealan­ders Bul­letbelt. “I put it to them: ‘I love films like A Night­mare On Elm

Street 3 and Trick Or Treat, which have a heavy metal theme song, and that’s what I’m re­ally look­ing to do,’” ex­plains Ja­son. Bul­letbelt’s Steve Fran­cis adds: “I was given the film script to write the lyrics be­fore the film was even made so I had to vi­su­alise and feel the vibe of the movie. I think we nailed it!” We can’t dis­agree: the movie’s tit­u­lar theme is a head­bang­ing show­case of black­ened thrash malev­o­lence.

CHOICE LYRIC: “Ac­cursed, re­cite the an­cient hymn / Scar­let tide wants the key to death / Driven, blood gush­ing from their eyes / Hell and pain awaits all the rest”
