Album: For Aeons Past

Here is what frontman Christian Älvestam has to say about the video: "This video is basically a visual wrap-up of everything we've done so far, as a band, since the start. Several shots featured come from footage filmed a long time prior to the video (material that will re-appear in their entirety, in the "the making of For Aeons Past"-clips that will follow, in time) and some of it was filmed exclusively, with the video in mind! Style-wise, we wanted to try to capture that naked old-school feeling that a lot of rock-videos and "behind the scenes"-documenteries used to capture so well back in the day. Many videos of today I think lack that genuine feeling, being more just about green-screens, computer-animations and whatnot and not so much about trying to get the heart and soul of the band across! Personally, I've always been a sucker for the more raw and honest stuff, where you get the feeling of almost being a part of the band - where you get to experience all the different sides, regardless of its nature. For example, I've always loved videos like Metallica's "Nothing Else Matters", their two documentaries "1½ years in the life of Metallica" and the three Vulgar videos that Pantera put out. The stuff where you get to see and know the band, as they are, doing what they do! In short, this video is just us being who we are and whether you like it or not, you just have to deal with it!
