On the heels of his chart-topping debut week for “Rejoice In The Suffering”, Queensrÿche vocalist Todd La Torre is releasing another official music video from the critically-acclaimed album. The video for “Hellbound and Down” is a fiery visual that accompanies one of the heaviest tracks on La Torre’s debut. Todd’s songwriting partner Craig Blackwell delivers a punishing guitar riff fronted by Todd singing and screaming as fan’s have not heard before. The video for “Hellbound and Down” was directed and filmed by Thomas Crane of killDevil Films and can be seen below.
“Hellbound and Down is about crossing a line and paying a price. Musically, it is an action-packed metal tune with relentless groove, varying vocal textures, and vocal range. This song once again showcases stellar guitar riffs and soloing by Craig Blackwell ,” explains Todd La Torre.
