Scar the Martyr Release Video for 'Blood Host'

Scar The Martyr, the blazing-hot new hard rock outfit that has been scorching up the popularity charts for rock fans around the globe, have released a stellar video for their new single, “Blood Host”.  Featuring Pearl’s own Joey Jordison on drums- who is best known for his work with the Grammy Award winning and multiplatinum selling metal juggernauts, Slipknot- Scar The Martyr recently made their highly anticipated debut as they teamed up and joined the legendary Danzig on their most recent North American tour.  A simplistic yet amplifying watch, Scar the Martyr’s new video for “Blood Host”, features Joey Jordison and company rocking out to the hard-hitting track in a performance-type video, personifying their highly aggressive sound and unleashing complete pandemonium upon their respective instruments.  “Blood Host” will be included as part of Scar the Martyr’s debut self-titled album, which is scheduled to hit the shelves on October 1st.
Given the incredible response they’ve continually received at each tour stop, it would appear as if Joey Jordison has, yet again, hit another one out of the park with Scar the Martyr.  With a highly aggressive and edgy sound, Scar the Martyr has unleashed pure havoc upon each stage they’ve graced, and utter pandemonium in the most pits they’ve created.  For drummers, the unmistakable sound of Joey’s furious work behind the kit shows off his quick fills and phenomenal footwork, constantly reminding and proving to the listener exactly why he has been so widely recognized as one of the greatest metal drummers of all time.  While in the studio laying down the tracks for Scar the Martyr’s upcoming self-titled album, and as unveiled at the first stop of the Danzig North American tour, Joey unveiled his massive Piano Black lacquered Reference Pure drums, complete with his signature 4-up-2-down setup, matching kick drums, and a sprawling Pearl ICON Rack System.  Joey’s full specs are as follow:
