|This has to be the coolest music video I've ever seen. Everything about it is so over the top it's simply amazing. The band, Dragonforce, has claimed they're so metal they'll melt your face off (or something to that effect, anyway). They didn't melt my face off, but they warmed my heart with their insane power metal posturing and posing. |
I usually never listen to this kind of music, usually because of the cheese factor and the squealing vocals, but after watching the mind-boggling dueling solo at the end of the video I was sold. Holy Merlin's pointy hat, if I could play like that I wouldn't have to sit in front of a computer all day. Instead, I'd be touring the country in a frilly blouse, twirling a pointy guitar around my dragon-slaying sword.
This song is so hilariously uplifting, it could cheer up Edgar Allan Poe's depressed corpse. I mean, the guy's playing a keytar for shit's sake. And he's actually rocking it! These guys obviously don't take themselves too seriously and are just being goofy. What's not to love?
Anyway, enjoy the video--especially the dueling solos near the end.
