Back in December of 2015, Megadeth had released an animated video for the track The Threat Is Real which is off of the band’s newest album Dystopia which comes out tomorrow (January 22). In the video the band is broken out of jail by Vic Rattlehead in the police state world that they live in (to read that article, go here). Now the band has released the sequel to that video for the title track. In the video for Dystopia, Vic is a wanted man and he is kicking ass left and right, taking out as many of the law enforcement as he can. Meanwhile, the band is planning something along with the rebels as they try to take out as many forces as they can. The video is as cool and amazing as the first one and it makes me wonder by the end if we’ll get another. Dave Mustaine talked to Mashable about the video saying, “We had met with a guy in England, and I basically talked to him about this dystopian city that I had kind of visualized. You see all these movies like Armageddon, Independence Day, 12 Monkeys, Planet of the Apes and stuff, and there’s always a moral at the end of the story: If you stand up for what’s right, you won’t have to give in to a dystopian world. It’s just one of those things we grew up in. Explaining that concept to the artist — I thought he got what I was saying pretty clearly.” Check out the video below:
