"Fly Or Die", the new video from THE THREE TREMORS, the project featuring acclaimed heavy metal singers Tim "The Ripper" Owens (JUDAS PRIEST, ICED EARTH, YNGWIE MALMSTEEN), Harry "The Tyrant" Conklin (JAG PANZER) and Sean "The Hell Destroyer" Peck (CAGE, DEATH DEALER, DENNER/SHERMANN), can be seen below. As seen in the striking clip, footage of fighter planes and THE THREE TREMORS singing the tune on a landing strip is on display throughout.
Says Sean: "This video was great to shoot on a bunch of levels. First, I am a big war buff and being in the cockpit of that Mustang was incredible. To think all those brave warriors did battle in those tight, cramped cockpits gives you an entirely new perspective on just how insane it must have been. Next, I think the metal godz were smiling on us that day as it was the eye of the storm, and the only clear day without heavy rain for two weeks straight. The mountains surrounding San Diego were covered in snow and the air was crisp. It was a glorious day to do this tribute to such an important event in American history. After playing this song live now for over 30-plus shows, a lot of fans have been calling it the 'Aces High' of the modern age, which, of course, is the ultimate heavy metal compliment."
Adds Harry: "Best 'hair day' of my life!! Blast being a part of the past! Always the best time of my life filming with my metal brothers!"
States Ripper: "This is another great song to play live. The place always fires off once this song gets going."
THE THREE TREMORS have just wrapped up their first-ever U.S. tour and are planning on remaining busy. More dates will be announced shortly.
THE THREE TREMORS' self-titled debut LP was released on January 18. The band nourishes in heavy metal anthems, and features the illustrious chops of guitarist Dave Garcia, whose tenacity fuels the fire, allowing the music to naturally flow in complimentary tone. Second guitarist Casey Trask picks up the pace and pushes the boundaries alongside bassist Alex Pickard, who highlights a melodic sensibility giving character to the overall tonality. On drums, the thrash machine Sean Elg adds in his perfectly placed fills and signature double bass patterns.
"Sean's band, CAGE, opened for JUDAS PRIEST on the 'Jugulator' tour in San Diego — that is where I first met him," recalls Ripper. "He hit me up about resurrecting the idea and actually doing a record, and then a band, to put this out in the live setting also, and I thought it sounded really cool. The record came out really strong and I think the fans deserved to have a thing like this actually exist. We performed two of the songs live already when I was out in San Diego shooting the video for the first single, and it was a blast."
"It was about [six] years ago, I was camping and thinking about the whole THREE TREMORS urban legend from long ago and what a shame it was that it never happened," says Sean. "Then I started thinking about if there was a resurrected 2018 version of it, who would I get, and Tim and Harry were at the top of my list. I immediately reached out to Tim, who agreed to embark on this adventure and Harry quickly joined next. It took a long time to put it together, create the right songs, and get it properly arranged, but the results are beyond my wildest expectations."
"Sean and I ended up at a party together in Germany, where we were both playing the same festival, and he told me about the THREE TREMORS album he was putting together and asked if I would be into it," adds Harry. "He described the concept and how he wanted to bring this old idea to actual life and I said I was in. Once I started hearing the songs that were being sent over for me to record, I knew this thing was going to be really powerful. Then when I got sent the final mixes with all three of us on it, my jaw hit the floor on how well it all came together. For heavy metal fans, this is the ultimate."
THE THREE TREMORS' self-titled debut highlights artwork ingeniously created by renowned artist Marc Sasso (DIO, HALFORD, ADRENALINE MOB, DEATH DEALER), to showcase an apocalyptic battle between demonic hyper-wolves and the Three Tremors, who marched into an underworld overshadowed by evil forces only armed with bullets powered by heavy metal sorcery to reclaim the dystopian lands.
