Five Finger Death Punch has released a new video for the band's cover of the traditional tune "The House of the Rising Sun."
The cinematic video , directed by guitarist Zoltan Bathory in conjunction with Thought Pirates Film’s Brian Neal , has a Road Warrior -feel, with the armed band in a desert setting and featuring special vehicles built by Steve Darnell of Welder Up Garage.
“This video was an experiment, the initial step toward something we always wanted to do, which is to make a full-length Death Punch movie somewhere down the line," Bathory says in a statement. "We jumped into this knowing that we’d shoot more footage than we could possibly fit in one music video. We went out there with two helicopters, two gyrocopters, twenty something crazy cars, a big cast and an arsenal of cameras. We ended up with so much amazing material, the hardest task was to compress it down into a 3 minutes video, so we made an extended version with a long intro and we are making an even longer ‘directors cut’ as we speak."
The song come from volume two of the band's 2013 album The Wrong Side of Heaven and the Righteous Side of Hell .
