I'm pretty sure most of you mastered the basics of reading, so this title speaks for itself really. Here's a video so ridiculously awesome - or awesomely ridiculous, that's up to you - we decided to create a whole new feature just for similar special occasions.

The point of this new feature is to find the greatest metal video in the history of awesome. The more hilarious/eccentric/ludicrous the video the better...

Current heavyweight champion defending his belt is White Wizzard - Over The Top.


As the song title subtly gave away, this is nothing but pure over the top traditional metal madness. White Wizzard are bringing true heavy metal to the wild wild west... but how! You really need to see this to believe it. This video/piece of art/cause of recurring nightmares is as epic as they come. A pinnacle of cheese. Wrong on so many different levels. But you know what, in a strange way, I totally dig this particular travesty.

Interesting piece of trivia: the clip is directed by Dave Vorhes. The same guy who shot the other over the top White Wizzard gem "High Speed GTO" [video], which won the "Best Music Video" trophy at the 2008 Action on Film Festival. Ahh.

White Wizzard's debut Over the Top was released on February 8th in Europe and will be available in N. America on March 9th.





White Wizzard - Over The Top




In celebration of this new feature and to set the mood right - and because I have absolutely no friggin' idea what else to do with the following video - here's a little bonus for ya. By watching it, you'll understand why Vision is easily my new favorite all-girl metal band. These chicks know how to rock!





Vision - Bury You Alive




[If you found these videos devastatingly unfunny and/or painful to watch, and think you can do much better, shoot a private message to Thryce with your suggestions for next time's edition (coming soon). Videos preferably as recent as possible!]

Haha, those vids were pretty different somehow and funny at the same time.
Black_Handed - 22.02.2010 at 11:18  
White wizzard: OH NO! ELEVATOR MUSIC!!! nice video, really. altough the music sounds way too much like iron maiden (IM is cool, but copying isnt), except for the solos, which are pretty nice.

vision: old school, even with out of sync sound. somewhat reminds me of nirvanas in bloom video.

but to be honest...nothing tops the grim frostbitten ridiculousness of........CALL OF THE WINTERMOON!!
Giza - 22.02.2010 at 11:45  
AHAHAHAHAHAHAAAH! That White Wizard video just made my day!!! APPLE JUICE!!!! The guitaris with the Les Paul looks like a young James Hetfield!

This is more of a regular new feature rather than news. Stay tuned for more.

White Wizard may sound like Iron Maiden but they are one of best IM "copies" I heard in a while... Must check them out. Great video too
BudDa - 22.02.2010 at 13:41

White Wizzard's vid was pure gold. I mean like god damn, power rangers are pure amateurs compared to their summoning of the wizard.:lol:
patrickmetal12 - 22.02.2010 at 16:22  
No way these are the best Metal videos...
They might be funny-ish... But i seriously think you should reconsider which is the "best" metal video.
My choises would be: Down with the Sun. By: Insomnium or From Afar by: Ensiferum.
patrickmetal12 - 22.02.2010 at 16:27  
Common!
Viking Zombies!!!
nothing can ever beat that!

The expression on my face after watching "Over The Top" was very similar to the following: 030
The Shape 1973 - 22.02.2010 at 17:10  
All videos from now have to be like the White Wizzard one , that was funny.

Vision video, fat drummer ha ha.
WorpeX - 22.02.2010 at 17:21  
White Wizzard video was awesome although the song is kind of boring. I liked Vision though, too bad you dont have a page for them.
BitterCOld - 22.02.2010 at 18:31  
Imo we should change the ms logo from laiho to the WW holding the V aloft at roughly the 5:08 mark or so.
Valentin B - 22.02.2010 at 18:51  
The WW video is good, but imo they need to dial back a lot on the Maiden and Priest influences, FFS one of their songs on the debut album has the main riff lifted from Desert Plains by Priest only played twice as fast. you know which..

JÄY - 22.02.2010 at 20:19  
Yeah, these guys are pretty cool, but i dunno, its like their goal to be retro...so theyll never be great...always silly Iron Maiden rip-off-boys

White Wizard is awsome! AHAHAHAHHA
Apple Juice! LOL
BreadGod - 23.02.2010 at 05:22  
Ha ha! I have fooled you! The alcohol was actually apple juice! You will now die from apple poisoning!
Harlequin Devon - 23.02.2010 at 07:21  
White Wizard give me hope that metal bands will stop making videos in abandoned factories.
DP_Megachiva - 23.02.2010 at 09:29  
The White Wizzard video is awesome, it fits perfectly a song called "over the top"


The music is also great... WW looks like a promising band
They sound like a mix between Iron Maiden and Dio-era Black Sabbath

Umm I think it's Randy Rhoads, not Laiho.

umm, no. per the boss/site designer/uber metalhead himself:

18:21 - Ivan
Based on Laiho's image. Officially, it's a "metal hero".

Any Rhapsody video makes the cheesiness of these videos pale in comparison
Arian Totalis - 24.02.2010 at 05:32  
Lol in addition to the fact that song is awsome, this video really is just fucking rediculous. My favorite part was the part with the "666" proof alchahol.

Metal hero?... MEH. I completely agree with you, we should have that fat wizzard for the MS logo.

This is not to imply that Laiho is a "metal hero", this is too fat of a claim. However, one of his pictures was epic enough to be used as a model for an abstract mascot, which we refer to as "Metal Hero". So, if you lack imagination, you can say it's Laiho, or you can say it's an everyman metal musician, both would be true.

Actually, I'm not the one to trash the pic since even though I know that the model is Laiho, I've never seen the picture before knowing this site, but I'll still say that the fat dude is better, but that's just me..
