Marty “The Moth” Casaus draws inspiration from many dark sources, but now his manic and compelling performances in Lucha Underground have transcended wrestling and inspired the lyrics of the new single “Unleashed” by his favorite metal band: Killswitch Engage!
The Massachusetts born, metal mainstays have been hard at work on their new album “Atonement” which will be released on August 16th, 2019 on Metal Blade Records. Renowned editor Peter Gonzalez put together an exclusive lyric video for the new song which features incredible footage of the band and Marty “The Moth” Casaus.
Marty The Moth Casaus on the song:
“This song was originally written to be my ring entrance music for my championship reign in Season 4 of Lucha Underground… I met up with Killswitch Engage guitarist Adam Dutkiewicz in LA, and we recorded my part for the intro at my Air BnB!”
“It’s really the biggest compliment I’ve received in my career! I’ve been listening to Killswitch Engage for many years and they are my favorite band, and songs like “Strength Of Mind” always spoke to me because it reminds me of how powerful your brain is.. and in wrestling it’s always about the next idea or innovation or tweak! It’s really a trip to think about your favorite band watching your work and being inspired to create their art based on it… I’m so glad “Unleashed” is finally out, and getting a great response, and I hope someday the version with me doing the intro is released in some form.”
“The inner passion and rage of the Marty The Moth character was well demonstrated on Lucha Underground, but it truly takes the character to another level to hear it interpreted by these creative geniuses in Killswitch Engage”
Marty The Moth Casaus on the guys in the band:
Adam Dutkiewicz is such a talented dude musically, but he’s also a great guy! Mike D’Antonio isn’t just a killer bass player.. he also does amazing graphics/design work… He even designed me a shirt and attended the S4 finale for Lucha Underground!”
