Skynd have premiered a new video for their new song “Gary Heidnik“ feat. Korn’s Jonathan Davis. The track is inspired by serial rapist/killer Gary Heidnik, and it will appear on the band’s new EP “Chapter 1” (out August 15).
Skynd told Metal Hammer the following:
“We were delighted that Jonathan Davis wanted to be a part of Gary Heidnik. Working with him was an amazing experience and we are excited that the song and video are finally seeing the light of day.
All human beings are capable of cruelty and we have to keep the inner animal in check We’re here to provide a different perspective on the psyche to maybe answer some questions.”
“[Gary Heidnik] just had a bunch of sex slaves. ‘Buffalo Bill‘ [from ‘The Silence Of The Lambs‘] was based off of him. Gary had a pit in the ground and a bunch of girls as sex slaves, and when he thought they were trying to escape, he busted their eardrums with a screwdriver so they couldn’t hear. And he kept torturing them and fucking them and torturing them, and then one girl died so he didn’t know what to do, so that’s when he took her and ground her up, and started feeding the other girl to the other girls. It’s such a crazy story.
You can watch videos of the one girl that escaped. I watched her video, and that’s where I got my line, ‘The food looks good enough, good enough to eat,’ because he was feeding them dog food laced with their friends. So that’s some dark shit. Skynd’s been waiting for a long time to get this shit out, it’s going to be awesome.”
