Megadeth recently released the official music video for “Killing Time,” a song off their latest studio album The Sick, The Dying… And The Dead!.
The video, titled “Chapter V: Killing Time,” is the fifth and latest to arrive from the band’s multi-part short film that centers around the band’s iconic mascot Vic Rattlehead‘s origins.
“It’s about people who are lackadaisical and waste their time. But time is the most valuable thing we have in this world. How many beats of the heart do I have left? How many breaths I am going to take before my last? How many times will I get to say ‘I love you’ again to my wife, to my kids, to my fans? I don’t know, but I’m going to cherish every moment,” Megadeth frontman Dave Mustain said in an interview about “Killing Time.”
Mustaine told Kerrang! “‘Killing Time’ isn’t about homicide. It’s about procrastination. The subject the doctors are talking about is this guy who thinks he’s got it all going on. But everything that he does peels back another layer of burnt skin. It’s stripping back the paint trying to cover up the mess that this person is. I actually know someone who’s just lost everything. We’re talking hundreds of thousands of dollars and a multi-million dollar company: gone. And he’d been warned. He was the slick dude in ‘Life In Hell.’ He was the Junkie. He’s definitely the guy in ‘Killing Time.'”
