Megadeth’s David Ellefson Premieres “Sleeping Giants” Video

Megadeth’s David Ellefson has premiered a new video for “Sleeping Giants.“ The song, which features Ellefson’s business partner Thom Hazaert, MC Daryl “DMC” McDaniels (Run-DMC), Steve Conley (Flotsam And Jetsam), Ethan Brosh, Ron “Bumblefoot” Thal (ex-Guns N’ Roses), and Ilias Papadakis (Memorain), serves as the title track to Ellefson’s “More Life With Deth” companion album.

Hazaert commented:

“David had all these great instrumental songs laying around, and ‘Sleeping Giants’ was one of them. He suggested I write and record some vocals parts for them, so I called up DMC and asked if he’d want to collaborate with us on a track, and we got to work. I’ve always loved off the wall metal/hip-hop collaborations, ‘Judgement Night’, etc. And I think ‘Giants’ definitely draws from that. The song and video both ended up with a really cool aggressive, old-school New York hardcore/hip-hop. feel. It my book, it doesn’t get any more legendary than RUN DMC. And this was definitely one for the history books.”

Ellefson added:

“It was truly an honor to collaborate with DMC, and I think the track came out great. When Thom said DMC wanted to do a collaboration with us, I instantly thought of ‘Sleeping Giants’. And when he came out to Revolution in Amityville to perform with us, and shoot the video, it was an awesome energy. I think everyone there got a show they won’t ever forget.”
