I'LL JUST HAUNT YOU...

I'LL JUST HAUNT YOU...

So it's getting close to Halloween and well, this article's title and these lyrics might be fitting for the upcoming dark holiday...



No hope of rescue
I'm trapped here alone
If I don't dig my own way out, I'll die here

Gave my loyalty too soon
Now the forked-tongue piper's bill is due

Weather is shifting
So cold, going numb
Through a pinhole of light, I see vultures circling

Bottom feeders pick my skin
Weathered brain a parasite within

Ego pulverized
No better medicine
Angels have been advised
Don't want no requiem

I'll just haunt you like a phantom limb
I'll just haunt you like a phantom limb
Gonna wear you like a second skin
I'll haunt you like a phantom limb

Every new second
Getting harder to breathe
No matter which side I end up on, this ain't over

My regrets are many, true
Still so much worse lies ahead for you

Ego pulverized
No better medicine
Angels have been advised
Don't want no requiem

I'll just haunt you like a phantom limb
I'll just haunt you like a phantom limb
Gonna wear you like a second skin
I'll haunt you like a phantom limb     


Sufficiently weirded/freaked out now?  Well, let the tease continue, as an even more freaky music video is in store for your eyes!  But it will not come to you in the form of a simple YouTube or Facebook video, nor does this song fit in with standard tradition.  Watching and experiencing this video is going to be a bit different... and perhaps just what the music industry needs!


All of this madness revolves around a new video/song released from Alice in Chains!  The song in and of itself is a crazy 7+ journey of grungy rock goodness, full of addictively slimy riffs, haunting vocal harmonies, plus a guitar solo that is sure to shock you!  Why would the solo shock you?  Well let AIC frontman tell the story:


"'Phantom Limb' was a musical demo that was sent to me, which I immediately reacted to, and within a day or so had written all the words for it. Within the first few minutes, I had a couple of lines for it, and over the next day or so, I refined it. All that stuff happened pretty quickly. Basically within 48 hours of them sending the musical demo, I sent them back a fully formed vocal track, pretty much what you here on the record. The actual recording was reproducing what I did at home. It never had a solo, so at one point where we were at Henson, deep into recording, [guitarist/vocalist Jerry] Cantrell asked me, 'Do you wanna play the solo on that, 'Cause I don't have anything.'"

Being that the song is such a lengthy and lyrical sonic journey, it should probably go without saying the video needs to somehow stack up in epic-ness.  And stack up it does!  If you aren't glued to your monitor while watching this, well then you may need to get checked out because your attention span may have completely imploded. 


This riveting new music video directed by Roboshobo is a freaky exercise in self-realization.  It is filmed in ultra-dramatic lighting and will leave you wondering until the end, where you may need to watch it again just to wrap your brain around it.  What can be better than a cringe-worthy music video pairing with an epic Alice in Chains song?!  There has not been a music video of this caliber in quite some time.  You will just need to see it to believe it.


And even seeing the video is defying convention!  The band has elected to house the official world-premier of the video on BitTorrent Bundle!  What the shit?!  Seriously, did we just read an official release coming out via BitTorrent?! 


You did in fact read that correctly, the video is available on this BitTorrent site to be downloaded and of course watched for free.  Furthermore, by registering you gain access to a bunch of exclusive extras like a new Halloween AIC tee shirt, "making of" and video production notes and much more!


Are you sufficiently teased and dying to see this?!  OK, OK!  Go to the following link, and don't worry, it's not a virus-laden torrent, but a new face of the dreaded T-word! 


It's safe, I promise!
