The Foo Fighters will soon be unleashing a horror-comedy flick titled Studio 666, and in advance of the movie’s release the modern-rock heroes have unveiled a new song, “March of the Insane” which trades in the band’s characteristic arena-ready hooks and massive melodies (okay, the melodies are still there) for full-on face-melting death-thrash.
And if you happened to pick up on the fact that “March” is credited not to Grohl and Co. but rather some band named Dream Widow, there’s a reason for that. In the film, the song is the work of a fictional metal band by that name who haunt the house. As Grohl recently explained to Howard Stern:
“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 and 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 all hell breaks loose."
