IGNITOR Release Official Video for 'Hatchet (The Ballad of Victory Crowley)'

IGNITOR album2017

Austin, Texas true-metal titans IGNITOR unveil their latest music video for 'Hatchet (The Ballad of Victor Crowley),' a song inspired by the Hatchet franchise and featured on the movie's soundtrack. From vocalist Jason McMaster's lyrical perspective the song is delivered through the eyes of Victor Crowley himself. Check out the video below:


Hatchet director Adam Green comments 'The first concert I ever went to was Dangerous Toys when they performed at Boston's Orpheum Theater back in 1989. From that moment on, Jason McMaster played a pivotal role in my life musically and I've followed everything he's ever done since. Almost thirty years later to be putting out IGNITOR's 'Haunted By Rock N Roll' through my own sublabel ArieScope Records, with EMP LABEL GROUP, and for the band to have written the song 'Hatchet' (The Ballad of Victor Crowley)' specifically for the latest entry in my HATCHET slasher film franchise... it is truly a dream come true. IGNITOR represents everything that made me fall in love with metal to begin with.'

IGNITOR vocalist Jason McMaster adds 'A killer old school heavy metal video in the style of late 80's bloody horror slasher films! This was a labor of love for blood and metal. I am proud of this moment, and very happy with the song we built for Adam's creation of the bloodiest freak of them all, the king of the swamp...Victor Crowley!'

IGNITOR released their sixth full length album Haunted By Rock & Roll November 24, 2017 through EMP Label Group/ArieScope Records. 'Hatchet (The Ballad of Victor Crowley)' is the band's third music video taken from the new album 'Haunted By Rock & Roll' following 'No Sanctuary' and 'To Brave The War,' the latter two available below.


'To Brave the War' (Official Video):


'No Sanctuary' (Official Video):


Haunted By Rock & Roll introduces heavy metal fans to arguably IGNITOR's strongest lineup to date and their definitive metallic statement. Featuring eight new original anthems of leather clad glory including "Hatchet (The Ballad of Victor Crowley)" as featured on the official motion picture soundtrack for the 2017 "Victor Crowley" slasher film and a cover of "Hung, Drawn and Quartered" by NWOBHM legends (and EMP labelmates) RAVEN.


EMP label owner/founder Dave Ellefson (MEGADETH) who serves as Executive Producer on Haunted By Rock & Roll has been instrumental in attaining a larger audience for IGNITOR and the sky is now the limit for the band that debuted with a record entitled "Take To The Sky."

"Primitive, primal, down to earth and anthem-oriented for the studs and leather-clad hordes, Ignitor fuse the best of American, British, and German heavy metal from the first half of the 1980's and spit out songs that shine." [8.5/10]
- Dead Rhetoric


"There isn't a lackluster song to be had here, which makes it an absolute must for all fans of true heavy metal might. If you want to keep it true, you can't go wrong with this one. You just can't." [9/10]
- The Grim Tower


"If you grew up during the early 80s when records by Judas Priest, Black Sabbath and Kiss would sit comfortably alongside those of Iron Maiden, Accept and Anthrax, then "Haunted By Rock & Roll" will indeed have you in headbanger heaven."
- Battle Helm


"Pure genuine Heavy / Power Metal" [4/5]
- Metalunderground.at


"Haunted by Rock & roll offers us nine tracks of pure Heavy Metal, strongly influenced by the NWOBHM." [8/10]
- Soil Chronicles


"Haunted by Rock'n Roll is a great piece of old-school speed metal."
- Rock Castle Franken


"Reminds us that Heavy Metal is supposed to be high energy, fun music and these guys do it well in the modern day."
- Glistening Metal


"Not one track would I label as filler. If you like your metal straight up without any bells and whistles, then this is the album for you."

- Wormwood Chronicles


"Executive producer and label owner/founder Dave Ellefson (Megadeth) does have an ear for good taste. "
- Ave Noctum
