Slashercore outfit, Ice Nine Kills have dropped the fourth and final new track from their upcoming album ‘The Silver Scream 2: Welcome To Horrorwood‘ prior to its release this coming Friday, October 15th via Fearless Records. Today’s offering submitted into evidence is titled “Funeral Derangements” and is inspired by the Stephen King horror classic, Pet Sematary. The accompanying music video features Horror icon Bill Moseley (The Devil’s Rejects, House of 1000 Corpses), a show stopping cameo from Miko Hughes, the actor from the original 1989 Pet Sematary, a cameo from Josh Katz from Badflower portraying the undead Victor Pascow, and James A. Janisse and Chelsea Rebecca creators of the wildly popular Dead Meat James “Kill Count” Youtube series.
Ice Nine Kills frontman and driving creative force, Spencer Charnas shares:
“In perhaps the most ironic cameo in recent horror memory, we’ve tapped the amazing Miko Hughes, (Gage from the original Pet Sematary), to play the role of the reckless truck driver. An 18 wheeler, a twisted cat, a scalpel and an evil burial ground all come together in what I’d call our most ambitious homage yet. Dig in…”
“Funeral Derangements” follows the release of previous singles “Rainy Day” ‘Assault & Batteries‘ follows the release of “Hip To Be Scared“, the first single from ‘The Silver Scream 2: Welcome To Horrorwood‘, that paid homage to the Bret Easton Ellis classic, ‘American Psycho‘. Decadent, devious, and fiercely insane, with sardonic wit to spare, Ice Nine Kills celebrate pop culture’s darkest edges, mining a cinephile library’s worth of b-movie schlock and iconic horror on ‘Welcome to Horrorwood:The Silver Scream 2‘ and it’s prequel, ‘The Silver Scream‘. Physical pre-orders of the album are available now here.
When I first heard the song, I instantly liked how heavy it was but the video and all of the cameos in it make it 1000x better than I expected it to be. Ice Nine Kills one-ups themselves each time and its absolutely insane!
