The ultimate musicvideo: Soilwork - Light the torch
« on: August 21, 2004, 09:22:40 pm »
I just ran across this student-project that was made on a school where i'm headed.  It's a musicvideo to the song Light the torch by the Swedish metal-band Soilwork. This is one of the coolest musicvideos i've seen in a long time. It's completely made by CG-graphics but oh so nice.  You can check it out here:

I usually don't like metal-music, (except for MaSu) but this song is really good. If you like it, check out the songs Chainheart Machine and Spirit of a future son. They rock as well.

Downloading video now. It's going quite slowly though so I'll post my thoughts later on.

Wow, awesome video!

I didn't like the music at all, I'm not a fan of metal... And I can't stand it when people just scream into the mic, it ruins it for me.

As for the video, brilliant work. Very stylish and with a cool, unique blurry / grainy and dull visual effect to suit the mood.

Thumbs up, nice find!

Ahh Soilwork, I love metal. Screaming works great for me though. I'd say they are right up there with Kovenant, In Flames, Dark Tranquility, Passenger, Rammstein, Rhapsody, Nightwish, Masugn and some others and of course Machinae Supremacy.

Downloading the 16mb on my 56k... Slowly.

Wow, that video was cool.  Didn't care much for the song, but that CG was top notch.

Wow the benifits of living in Australia when all of the telephone (and most Internet, and the big tube o' wires under the sea?) infrastructure is owned by one company, Telstra.

If I only had the bandwidth for the high bandwidth version, whilst not being capped at 28.8 .


That video was cool, and it was for an assignment if you had read the info stuff. Also that video has made me listen to more soilwork. As the nightwish - nemo video really got me into nightwish.

complete 0wnage ind33d...
(how lame)

I have deepest respect for screaming singers. Everytime I try that, I have a sore throat for days. I wonder how they stand through a whole concert. Children of Bodom, anyone?
And Soilwork is as harmonic as a men's choir (on dope).

Yea singing like that is difficult indeed, I remember reading an article about the current lead singer from Arch Enemy. But anyways she was saying when she first started out she couldn't "growl" for long periods and she needed some sort of speach therapist to better "growl"

March of the Undead.  Since it was the last one I listened to.
