Ice Nine Kills Round Out Horrorwood Saga With “Meat & Greet”

Ice Nine Kills have brought their Horrorwood saga to a brutal end with their new track “Meat & Greet“. The Horrorwood story began two years ago. That was with the release of the band’s excellent full-length Welcome To Horrorwood: The Silver Scream 2. Alongside homaging films such as Child’s Play, Candyman, Hostel and more, the band also created a whole original film around the record too. Part court case drama, part sickly slasher, part heavy metal opus, it’s been one hell of a journey. Now, the curtain has come down on the epic, with many questions answered about who exactly is the Silence Killer and whether vocalist Spencer Charnas has been behind it all along.

First, though, we have the new track. “Meat & Greet” pulls its inspiration from the atmospherically discomforting classic Silence Of The Lambs. Chock full of iconic lines and masterful performances, it’s a no-brainer for why Ice Nine Kills would want to turn it into a metalcore monster. Much like with every track they produce, it is done with due care and consideration. Crushing riffs, devilish deliveries and breakdowns that could break the skin, it’s a stunner.

Then there is the video. Placing you right in the center of Hannibal Lecter’s universe, with so many unreal nods to the picture, it’s an easter egg-filled treat. Then as we get to the finale of the main Horrorwood story, everything comes together. There’s deceit, suspense, a chainsaw, and SO MUCH BLOOD. Approach with caution, and don’t watch at work. But just know, this is a success unlike any other for Ice Nine Kills. Proof that they are a cut above the rest in so many ways, whatever they do next is going to be even more spectacular.
