Pretty sick. Its nice to have a legit Turisas video. But i think it woulda been cooler to shoot in the forest or at a castle or some shit idk..
AngelofDeth - 20.04.2011 at 23:35  
Some rain or an actual fight woulda been good to throw in there too...

The song kicks ass, but the video was way off in my opinion. When hearing the song, I always pictured some angry vikings charging into battle. But what we get are dudes riding in a buggy until they find a girl... oh, and a spider. It would have been better if it was just them playing/singing. But what the hell, the song and the album still are amazing.

The mediocrity of the video properly reflects the album...So good job...I guess.

Why wasn't Netta Skog wearing face paint? :/

I think it's good that folk metal band can make "modern" videos, a bit ironic tough that they have warpaint while driving a car

I just love how there are lines about pouring rain while he's singing in the middle of a desert.

I know having a chick in your video sales, but wtf there isn't even accordion in that song! She just stands there, showing her nice suit off... ridiculous. But the video is ok, though I agree "The pouring rain sticks my hair to my face" sounds weird in a desert. It's not the rain, man, it's the blood covering your entire body

Wowowee. Original. The desert landscape really captures their vikingness.

That video was awful. At least Rhapsody (of Fire) had tits in their terrible videos.

Sea of Fate is so far the most boring video I've seen.

This one was quite a disappointment as well though..

Got to be my favourite song of the year so far, but what a boring video. Nothing really happens. They drive around a bit, find a girl sitting down, see a spider, see some old people with beards, then wander off.

It should have been a real viking battle song, loads of fighting and drinking, swords, axes and horny helmets.

"Mad Max" anyone? Looks like they were aiming for an all-out post-apocalyptic 'Beyond Thunderdome' vibe, but couldn't decide whether they wanted to show themselves off lip-synching (not too well) to the song or to tell a story.

In a video already over the top, why not go all out and show more of the "bandmembers-characters" and their rabble of survivors prowling across the wasteland and racing around with drawn weapons in that *combat vehicle* or whatever? Instead we get fragmented 0.5 second snapshots of what COULD have been a visually interesting song sub-plot, and the rest of the clip is a sloppy edit of the band live... Notably, mostly of the singer, the drummer, and the fiddler, as if to cover up for other bandmembers' lack of swagger. Or is their costume not impressive enough for the clip?..

Speaking of costume... Chickification of Netta Skog's image is a fail. What's a glammed-up Hot Topic-mall pin-up doing wielding that heavy accordion among postmodern viking steampunks is a mystery I'd very much like to know the answer to.

I'm not one for watching music videos cause they normally suck...compared to the music anyway. I'll give this one a try sometime though.

You bastard, I watched Sea of Fate expecting tits and instead got five minutes of limbo. Damn you!
