Exposure of a Dream

November 1992

I believe that its released was rushed. For one thing, the two live concert videos were shot at concerts that took place before the album was released, and the video doesn't contain the "Sweating Bullets" video, which is supposed to be excellent. There are no comments by band members like in Rusted Pieces, but the videos are generally of a higher quality, and overall, it's a pretty slick production.

Exposure of a Dream is out of print.

Total running time: 45 minutes
Available on: VHS

Exposure of a Dream


Symphony of Destruction :: Foreclosure of a Dream :: Skin O'My Teeth :: High Speed Dirt :: Go to Hell :: Symphony of Destruction (Edited Gristle Mix)

Symphony of Destruction

(Director: Wayne Isham, producer: Curt Marvis)

When it was first released, this video was in heavy rotation on MTV. It shows some typical politician campaigning when the country is falling apart and the people are enraged. The politician finally gets assassinated in a scene that was censored for MTV. There are also some shots of the band playing in between.

MTV didn't like the video for "Symphony of Destruction" because of an assassination scene that they felt was "too harsh".

"We said, 'You know what, the video registers good in our hearts, and we feel we've done the best job we can do. Whatever you need to do to it in order to get the point across to kids out there that we're being led down a one-way street off a cliff by the people that are ruling this country right now, go ahead.' I think it's more important that our point got across than the fact of whether or not we had to soften up a certain scene or lose it altogether." (Mustaine)


Foreclosure of a Dream

(Director: Jeff Richter, executive producer: Wayne Isham, producer: Curt Marvis)

This video shows a lot of scenes of farms and the country, most notably one of an auction, and other scenes of America's heartland in economic recession. You've got to understand the economic situation when this video was made to really appreciate how timely this video once was, even though it seems very dated now. There are also a lot of shots of the band playing in a room that looks like the room on the cover of Countdown to Extinction.


Skin O'My Teeth

(Director: Eric Zimmerman, Eric Koziol, producer: Jim Deloye)

This is a live concert video with miscellaneous scenes of car wrecks, drugs, razor blades, etc.

The live footage for the video was filmed on May 22, 1992 in Chicago, at the Metro.


High Speed Dirt

(Director: Eric Zimmerman, Eric Koziol, producer: Jim Deloye)

This is another concert video with scenes of the band and other people skydiving put in here and there.

The live footage for the video was filmed on May 22, 1992 in Chicago, at the Metro.


Go to Hell

(Director: Eric Zimmerman, Eric Koziol, producer: Jim Deloye)

This video shows a bunch of ambiguous images, Dave Mustaine talking from underwater, David Ellefson dressed up as a priest in a graveyard, and Nick and Marty just hanging around in various places. There are plenty of scenes from Hell, of course, ending with the Prince of Darkness himself.


Symphony of Destruction (Edited Gristle Mix)

(Director: Wayne Isham, editor: Ben Stokes)

This video has got some scenes from the original video and some various shots of war and destruction.
