ROCKIN’ ENGINE’s Video For “Monsters Under Your Bed” Will Give You Reason To Stay Awake At Night
New EP “Altered By Evil” Out July 2023
Pedal to the floor, motor running high! That’s how Ottawa, Canada’s Rockin’ Engine rolls – full throttle, no compromise. Officially formed in 2018, they released their first self-produced album “Midnight Road Rage”, which caught the attention of many hard rock and heavy metal enthusiasts throughout Europe and America. Switching things into high gear for 2023, Rockin’ Engine produced their very anticipated new EP “Altered By Evil” inspired by 80’s psycho horror, ready to be released this summer. Each track is chock full of high-octane riffs, thunderous drums, and catchy vocals that deliver chilling lyrics with power and finesse. The first single accompanied by a high-production video is “Monsters Under Your Bed”, which tells the story of a woman haunted by her past. The band comments:
“The video for this song was a very challenging project. Musically, we wanted people to hear the evolution in our style, without being too drastic in our change. Gojira was a huge inspiration in the writing process of the music, with a rhythmic introduction and heart-pounding riffs, to melodic choruses that keep playing in your head over and over again. The main inspiration for the lyrics was the storyline of Wes Craven’s Nightmare On Elm Street. So visually, we wanted to recreate our own version of certain scenes in the movie and make the cinematic experience as big as possible.
With elaborate set design and props and hours of labour, Rockin’ Engine has succeeded in making a music video that is as entertaining and dramatic as the music they make. This is only the beginning of their cinematic adventure and they are looking forward to making more detailed videos in the future.
“Altered By Evil” is intended for horror fans and rockers alike. Those brave enough to dive into the darkness will be brought into a psycho-horror fantasy, where Wes Craven meets Stanley Kubrick, where Ramirez meets Bundy, where “Tubular Bells” meets “Dies Irae”. The various subtle influences and nuances gathered in this work will please any hardcore horror movie fanatic, but also anyone who can plunge themselves into an imaginary world of monsters and evil spirits. The EP is recommended for fans of Megadeth, Slayer, and Lamb of God.
