Titled Life In Hell: Chapter IV, the video is the fourth and latest installment of Megadeth’s epic multi-part short film revealing the origins of the band’s iconic mascot Vic Rattlehead.
The rapid-fire onslaught of Megadeth’s “Life in Hell” is one of the heavy-hitting thrash songs on the best-selling album The Sick, The Dying…And The Dead! This quintessential Megadeth track showcases the band’s tight musical precision and songwriting prowess–co-written by Dave Mustaine and drummer Dirk Verbeuren, and enhanced with Kiko Loureiro’s stylistic six-string flourishes, “Life in Hell” features seamless tempo and time signature shifts as Megadeth continues to set the bar for modern and classic metal alike.
The Sick, The Dying… And The Dead! debuted at the top of the charts during its first week of sales, taking the No.3 spot on the Billboard 200 as well as number ones on Top Album Sales, Top Current Albums Sales, Top Rock & Alternative Album, Top Rock Albums, and Top Hard Rock Albums. The album is the highest charting Megadeth album of all time around the world, also notching No.1 in Finland, No.2 in Australia, Poland, Switzerland, and Scotland, No.3 in the UK, and more.
Megadeth released The Sick, The Dying… And The Dead! via UMe on September 2. Featuring twelve new tracks, The Sick, The Dying… And The Dead! is available on CD, vinyl, and cassette, as well as digitally through all online partners.
