As I Lay Dying Posts "Electric Eye" Video

As I Lay Dying premiering a new music video for the band's take on the Judas Priest classic "Electric Eye" through www.Ulitmate-Guitar.com. The song appears on the recently released EP, "Decas, "which marks the band's 10 year anniversary.

The clip was shot with director Paul Brown (My Chemical Romance, Staind, Stone Sour) at El Mirage Lake, a dry lake bed in the Mojave Desert of San Bernardino County, California.

"After a long day of sunburns and drought out in the desert I'm glad to be done fighting scorpions for the filming of Electric Eye. We came out victorious, but we probably couldn't have done it without the classic metal inspiration of Halford and Priest's legendary guitar melodies," explains front man Tim Lambesis.

Check out the video clip by navigating over to this location.

The "Decas" EP also features three brand new songs, three additional covers that pay homage to just a few of the bands that have influenced As I Lay Dying, and remixes.

The Rockstar Ramblings: 1981 M/F/K

30 years ago the bands Anthrax, Metallica, Motley Crue, Pantera, Queensryche, and Slayer were formed. It was also the year many important hard rock/heavy metal albums were released, laying the groundwork for the eighties. Here’s a look back at ten of these classic albums in no particular order.

M (Marry) is a song you want to “save” and listen to forever, F (Fuck) is the song you get one more listen to and that is it, and K (Kill) is the song you want to go away and never be heard from again.
