Megadeth is giving fans a 360-degree glimpse into its live show with the new video for “Poisonous Shadows.” The song, off the band’s fifteenth studio album Dystopia, includes striking string accompaniment alongside Dave Mustaine’s deep growl.
The six-minute-plus video features a virtual joystick on the upper left-hand side of the screen which allows a viewer to use a mouse to select a different angle of the stage. Whether viewers use the on-screen arrows, drag the screen around with their mouse or tilt their smart phone in different directions, the perspective from a new band member is revealed as the spotlights shine brightly and a thick smoke engulfs the stage.
For those enticed enough by the live footage to want to see the band live, Megadeth is on tour through August supporting Dystopia. For complete dates, visit the band’s website.
