Greatest Metal Video Ever... So You Think Metal Can't Dance Edition


We're back, baby! Ready to cheer up/ruin your Sunday with another exiting edition of Greatest Metal Video Ever... Since it's been a while we picked not one but three awesome videos this time that have one peculiar thing in common: choreographed dance moves - oh yes we did! Because, y'know, dancing is metull!



Protest The Hero - Limb From Limb

Here it is. The moment nobody has been waiting for... a re-enactment of the Village People... or something equally heterosexual.

The world already knew the guys from Protest The Hero had a few dance routines going on - you ABSOLUTELY need to see this video too - but this is really something else. Appearing in everyone's nightmares from now on, enjoy the debacle that is "Limb From Limb"!


"Limb From Limb" comes off the band's latest album, Fortress, released in January 2008 through Vagrant Records.






Medeia - Descension [kudos are in order for Promonex]


Medeia know how to move like Michael Jackson... and Run DMC, I guess. Anyway, there's something about this video that just screams metal... and it's not just the abandoned parking lot.


"Descension" comes off the band's most recent effort, Cult, released in September 2008 via Fullsteam Records.







Goldfrapp - Alive


And as a little bonus, here's a video of some black metal warriors dancing with hot chicks in aerobic outfits. Yeah, when's the next time you're gonna see a thing like that again? If you happen to be severely allergic to anything non-metal-related on a metal website, by all means, get fucked in the ear/turn off your speakers/don't click this link and move on with the rest of your day.






[If you found these videos devastatingly unfunny and/or painful to watch, and think you can do much better, shoot a message to Thryce with your suggestions for next time's edition.]

Protest the hero should start writing serious death, melodic death metal and quit their whiny sappy shit. Some parts were... good?

My favorite is Medeia's, not to mention that all of their videos are on the same vein of insanity as this one.

Protest The Hero - Limb From Limb: I can already imagine the pre-production conversations: "You know, let's make the most gay metal video ever!!!11". Well they got that one right

Medeia - Descension: This is what death metal bands should try on stage! A lot of dance zombies!

And Goldfrapp, thank you for making it even harder not to laugh at BM music videos.

Everything he doesn't like is metalcore. Britney Spears, Elton John, Michael Moore, and green beans are also metalcore, in case you guys didn't know.

That Goldfrapp video was the most metal thing I've seen all year. And I've seen a guy with an Illdisposed autograph on his scrotum.

And chainer_666, I wish you a long and painful death.

It's even hardly imaginable how people come up with ideas for such videos... What about that blonde girl having moustache on at the end of the second video? And what about the ridiculous conversation at the beginning?

@Thryce (and all the other guys who are in charge of this section) : Thank you so much! You indeed know how to make people laugh. If I have to choose my 'favourite' one from these videos, it may be the first one because of all those naughty looks and winks, as well as because of the hilarious choreography. All these things, combined in just one video, make it simply hilarious and kinda... gay. (Don't get me wrong, please - I support homosexuals. Y'know what I mean.)

On the other hand, Medeia's video isn't that 'bad' either - doing street dances at an abandoned parking lot does seem... promising? Haha. Well done, Thryce! I'll be waiting for a new edition.
