U.S. deathcore band Winds Of Plague posted a video of vocalist Johnny Plague at the Halloween Haunt of "Knott's Scary Farm" (Knott's Berry Farm) in Anaheim, CA.
Check out the video here:
Winds of Plague has teamed up with Bloody-Disgusting.com for the premiere of the new music video for "Refined In The Fire." Directed by Jeremy Schott of MentalSuplex, the video keeps in the Halloween vein with blood covered band members and zombies.
"Being a big fan of both horror films and Halloween we wanted to do a video to tie into both," Says vocalist Johnny Plague. "We created a video set in a post apocalyptic era... Not too long into the video you realize the cause of the end of society as we know it, ZOMBIES! I play the role of zombie slaying bad mother fucker roaming the dessert looking for salvation. Instead i find a shack infested with all sorts of evil. To capture this horror based music video i recruited my people at Knotts Scary farm. Designer Brooke Walters as well as a legion of monsters. Happy Halloween followers of Plague, stay bloody!"
"Refined In The Fire" is taken from the band's latest album "Against The World," which was released earlier this year. Fans can also catch Winds of Plague this November for their headlining "Thrash and Burn" Tour. A full list of dates can be seen below. More...

Each band will deliver their unique brand of crushing metal, and it will prove to be one hell of an evening for fans of heavy music.
