Megadeth’s Vic Rattlehead Goes On Cemetery Rampage In ‘Lying in State’ Video

Published

on

Even though Megadeth is already in the early process of writing their next album, they’re still promoting their Grammy-winning Dystopia with the release of a new video, “Lying In State”, which features the band’s mascot, Vic Rattlehead slicing and dicing his way through a cemetery.

As Rolling Stone explains:

The song’s lyrics seem to be politically charged, with Dave Mustaine singing, “What we are witnessing is the decline of Western civilization,” but the clip itself is pure fantasy: The band performs in a ruined tomb next to burning trash cans, Vic’s sword has “Rust in Peace” etched into it (calling back to Megadeth’s 1990 album), and the video ends on the surreal side with a somewhat happy ending.
