Beauty In Chaos, the project led by guitarist Michael Ciravolo, have premiered a new video for “Un-Natural Disaster (Collide Mix)” via Rolling Stone. The original track featured Body Count’s Ice-T, King’s X’s Dug Pinnick, and The Offspring’s Pete Parada. As an added bonus, this remix also includes a new guest solo from Zakk Wylde (Ozzy Osbourne, Black Label Society). The track will appear on Beauty In Chaos’ “Beauty Re-Envisioned,” which will be released on June 21.
“Un-Natural Disaster” focuses on the destruction caused by Hurricane Katrina and Hurricane Harvey and Ciravolo had the following to say about it:
“This song really hits close to home as I was born and raised in New Orleans. I lived in Los Angeles when Katrina hit, but watched as friends and family lost everything. My elderly aunt was evacuated as the city’s services shut down, and sadly she did not survive the move to Alabama. She, along with at least 1,200 others, lost their lives as a result of this devastating hurricane.”
Pinnick also commented:
“The remix of this track is even heavier, more brutal and danceable than the album version, which I love! I know Michael was from New Orleans … and I lived in Houston for quite a while. I witnessed what Hurricane Harvey did there and saw the good and bad in humanity. I think the video translates the lyrics and what was in my head and heart extremely well. Loved that Ice put his punctuation mark on it as only he can!”
“This song is striking in its imagery. The destruction and devastation left behind from these storms is brought to life in the music. I was completely honored to play on a track with both Michael, Dug, and Ice. Then to have Zakk Wylde on the remix really elevated it to a whole new level.”
