Sounds | Dream Widow, March of the Insane

Motörhead meets Venom, met een vette productie eronder, zo zou je deze track van 'hun nooit uitgebracht, zelfgetitelde album' kunnen omschrijven. Dream Widow is natuurlijk een zoveelste project van Dave Grohl (en zijn Foo Fighters). Net als bij de eerder verschenen Dee Gees uitstap is Grohl als zanger vocaal onherkenbaar en dat maakt het best leuk.

Dream Widow figure heavily (pun intended) into the Foos’ upcoming horror movie, Studio 666. “The premise of the movie is that we move into this house, I have writer’s block, I’m totally uninspired, I can’t come up with anything. And I wind up finding this creepy basement. And I go into the basement, I find this tape by a band from 25 years ago that recorded there. And there’s this song that, if recorded and completed, the fucking demon in the house is unleashed, and then, whatever, all hell breaks loose.” says Dave Grohl.

Filmmaker BJ McDonnell (Hatchet III, Slayer’s The Repentless Killology) directed the film, which is based on a story by Grohl. In addition to the Foo Fighters, Studio 666 also stars Will Forte, Whitney Cummings, and Jeff Garlin. The film is “Rated R for strong bloody violence and gore, pervasive language, and sexual content.”

The three movies Grohl cited as inspiration for the flick in a Rolling Stone interview were The Shining, The Amityville Horror, and Evil Dead. “The ‘rock band film’ as a tradition seems to have disappeared,” he said. “Whether it was A Hard’s Day’s Night or [the Ramones’] Rock ‘n’ Roll High School or Kiss Meets the Phantom of the Park or the fucking Spice Girls movie. We’re not going for There Will Be Blood. We just want to have fun in that old tradition of rock & roll.”
