MEGADETH have dropped the fifth chapter in the video saga that has accompanied their latest album “The Sick, The Dying… And The Dead!“
The clip was directed by a returning Leo Liberti which accompanies the album’s eighth track, “Killing Time“. You can check it out below.
The previous editions into the saga are the already released videos for “We’ll Be Back“, the Ice-T featuring track “Night Stalkers”, the album’s title track and the song “Life In Hell“.
Regarding the lyrical inspiration for “Killing Time“, MEGADETH‘s Dave Mustaine told Kerrang! magazine: “‘Killing Time‘ isn’t about homicide. It’s about procrastination. ‘Psychopathy‘ [another song from ‘The Sick, The Dying… And The Dead!‘] gives you the background] for the person that ‘Killing Time‘ is about. The subject the doctors are talking about is this guy who thinks he’s got it all going on. But everything that he does peels back another layer of burnt skin. It’s stripping back the paint trying to cover up the mess that this person is. I actually know someone who’s just lost everything. We’re talking hundreds of thousands of dollars and a multi-million dollar company: gone. And he’d been warned. He was the slick dude in ‘Life In Hell’. He was the Junkie. He’s definitely the guy in ‘Killing Time’.”
