Greatest Metal Video Ever... So Far. Guest Edition!


So your regular provider of epic metal video goodness, Thryce, is a busy little bee and authorized yours truly to give it a shot with the next installment. Here goes nothing.

Earlier this month I caught the Between the Baroness and Mastodon gig, and arrived early enough to enjoy the opening act, Valient Thorr. Their energetic stage show and "P-A-R-T-Y - you ain't go no alibi, YOU PARTY!" chant, coupled with some barley sodas got me fueled up to enjoy the rest of the gig. They were rocked hard enough that I took the time to chat with them at the merch stand, buy a disk after their set, and later went to their website where I discovered this inspiration for this column.

The creative mind and ambition of director Mike Aho combines special effects that make Avatar look lame with gratuitous violence and the best car chase scene since the Blues Brothers to great effect. His artistic vision with an amazing, Oscar-worthy performance by Valient Himself results in a truly fantastic metal video for "Tomorrow Police" off of their 2008 release, Immortalizer that is worthy of much praise indeed.

Enjoy.



The band is still touring the US before hitting Hellfest and the rest of Europe this summer. Get there early and be prepared to party.

for the express purpose of annoying people like you. mission accomplished. let's see how many more people we can piss on/off/goldenshower in the process.

don;t like 'em, don't read 'em. golly. i learned back around 1983 when i first started reading newspapers to skip the crap that i don't care about.

Hell, i'm staff here and I skip any thread/news item which doesn't seem like it will interest me.

someday you, too, will learn. maybe. but perhaps i'm overestimating you...

...but you just compared them to Offspring, so at least you are good at unintentional comedy.
