Title: Killswitch's New Video "Holy Diver"
Post by: Jack Lupino on August 01, 2007, 09:37:07 pm
Their new video has somewhat of an medieval setting.

The song is a cover of Dio's song..

Check it out here : http://vids.myspace.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=vids.individual&VideoID=14620102

Honestly, i think the video is utter crap.

It makes Kse look cheap and rediculous.

The overall look of the clip is just like a tv show for little kids..

I thought the video was pretty lame (i know that's what they were going for, but it wasn't even funny... just bad). As for the song, though, I believe the complete opposite, because I hate pretty much everything ever sung by Dio.

I think the video is great because it's so god damn silly. And seem cheap, i think it's charming.

Aye, i thought the song was pretty decent aswell.

Maybe it's cause I don't like covers so much. Well, the only cover I liked yet were some Guitar Hero ones with Ballroom Blitz from the GH 80s in the first place.

The video is quite clearly a piss take.

Decent enough cover, too!

Decent cover, but the singer clearly misses the sheer power in Dio's voice. The video on the other hand, was a perfect homage to Dio's old super cheesy fantasy videos.

Saying "this is the way it has always been done" is a piss-poor excuse to do something.

Still an excuse though. And who says you need excuses to do anything?

For the record, I view this cover as a blasphemous mockery of our lord DIO's holy works. Or something

 The original was a bit naff, this is a bit lame. The screaming especially doesn't go well, nor the style of music.

 But to each their own ::)
