Cinemetal Round-Up: New Videos From Kamelot, Blessthefall, and Aerosmith
I’m going to put about as much effort into this introduction as Gwar put into being inoffensive.
We begin today with “Sacrimony (Angel Of Afterlife),” the new video from Kamelot, who spell their name with a “K” instead of a “C” because fuck you, that’s why. In case the band’s moniker and the title of the song didn’t give it away, yes, this is a clip for an irritating power metal song. That being said, I actually found it less irritating than most other Kamelot I’ve heard… maybe I’m going soft in my old age. Anyway, the video is okay. It’s basically a power metal version of a Cradle of Filth video.
We continue with Blessthefall’s video for the song “40 Days.” Based on the title, I assumed the video was going to be about Lent, but it’s actually about zombies. Not in a cool way, though; it’s Blessthefall, so, of course, they made the zombie this emo pussy who’s obsessed with social networks. Even death can’t toughen these d-bags up.
And we conclude today’s edition of CRUP with “What Could Have Been Love,” the new Aerosmith video which originally premiered on Noisecreep. The video is cheesy as fuck, which is true of most Aerosmith videos, only this one has a serious dearth of scantily-clad hot women to keep it interesting. As for the song, it’s… fine. It sounds like every Aerosmith ballad from the past two decades. Bonus: of the three credited songwriters, one of them is actually a member of the band! And no, it’s not Joe Perry!
