A funny behind-the-scenes clip of SLAYER’s Tom Araya from the set of “Hairmetal Shotgun Zombie Massacre: The Movie” can be seen below.
Directed by Joshua Allan Vargas, who has worked on music videos for DOWN, SOIL, PHILIP H. ANSELMO & THE ILLEGALS and WARBEAST, the film is about a hair metal band that, while struggling to find its own identity, decides to record its first full-length album is a creepy cabin located in the middle of a notorious cemetery. Chock full of weed, coke, and booze, the band discovers a secret in the cellar and unwittingly open a gate that allows demons to possess the corpses in the surrounding cemetery. Forced to have to survive the night and with the odds getting slimmer, the band must battle hordes of the demonic undead and hope to get a record deal somewhere in the process.
Written by Joshua Allan Vargas and Jvstin Whitney, based on a story by Jvstin Whitney, “Hairmetal Shotgun Zombie Massacre: The Movie” features cameos by Tom Araya, Randy Blythe (LAMB OF GOD) and David Vincent (MORBID ANGEL).
All of the music in both the trailer and the documentary is new/original stuff from singer Tim “Ripper” Owens (JUDAS PRIEST, ICED EARTH, YNGWIE MALMSTEEN) and Marzi Montazeri (PHILIP H. ANSELMO & THE ILLEGALS). Owens and Montazeri composed the music for the fictional band WITCHES’ LIPS portrayed in the movie, and a soundtrack album featuring those songs as well as the score music will be issued at a later date.
