Just weeks away from kicking off their huge headlining tour with Fit For A King, Light The Torch, Make Them Suffer and Awake At Last, horror-obsessed metalcore act Ice Nine Kills have just released the long-awaited conclusion to their Silver Scream short-film.
Following the tale of frontman Spencer Charnas as he struggles with his inner demons, his fictional gore story has been told across Ice Nine Kill’s videos for “Merry Axe-mas,” “The American Nightmare,” “Thank God It’s Friday,” “A Grave Mistake” and “Stabbing In The Dark.”
Now, finally concluding with Ice Kills’ epic track “IT is The End,” Charnas reveals who has been behind the murders told throughout the band’s previous releases.
Talking about “IT is The End” and its creepy music video, which of course was inspired by Steven King’s IT, Charnas said:
“The Silver Scream film closes with a song that pays tribute to Pennywise the dancing clown from one of the scariest books and films of all time, IT. Originally a novel by Stephen King, two very different films (both equally as brilliant) have been adapted for the screen. Jovial and friendly at first, Pennywise can switch to the embodiment of evil at the drop of a hat, so I wanted to capture that as best as I could in my vocal performance and in the video clip.
Perhaps my favorite song on the album, it features incredible guest performances from two of my favorite bands of all time, Less Than Jake and Fenix TX. Will Salazar of FT, who co-wrote the chorus with me, does guest vocals and JR and Buddy from LTJ provide the sinister circus-like horn section that enhances the twisted carnival of carnage that is Pennywise.”
