BETWEEN THE BURIED AND ME MADE A NINE MINUTE-PLUS MUSIC VIDEO!
I know they probably didn’t have much of a choice, given that the only songs on their new album, The Great Misdirect, that are under six minutes (“Mirrors” and “Desert of Song”) aren’t really metal and would thus miss the mark in terms of reaching their target audience… but still, props to these dudes for a) not just opting out of making a video altogether, b) not editing this song down to a more Headbanger’s Blech-friendly running time, and c) making a nine-minute plus video that actually remains engaging all the way through. Obviously, director Kevin McVey deserves kudos, too; I’m not really familiar with his other work (which includes a Lizzy Borden video!), but I plan to start doing some homework now.
The Great Misdirect is out now on Victory. It’s friggin’ sweet.
