    If ye go here, you'll see DT's new video of "Foucs Shift" :) .

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yCeRS3nhSKE


    I'm not sure if I like this video... . Well i obviously like it :rolleyes: , but I dislike the fact that the images are always changing on most of the video, I hate when that happens, I always like the image to be still (at least for a few seconds) so that I can "admire" and observe the person that id being foucused.

    Hey now I get it! "Focus Shift"!!! :lol: Haha so now I guess that's why the images change so quickly, becuase the "focus" is "shifted"!

    Anyway, the video is nice, I liked that we can see all the members, I can finally see Martin B. headbanging again! :headbang:

    :kickass:

    Bye!

    I really think it's annoying to see the same kind of video all the time. I love to see the perform, but a story line is always interesting. Not original at all, though the takes are quite interesting...

    well, nice but nothing extraordinary beside the focus shift thing which is really cool.
    Lost to Apathy and New Build-video are much better.
    but what can we expect these days from any metalband in their videos?
    seeing the bands play. and thats what they do

    I didnt expect much from Focus Shift video. But i expect a lot from Misery's Crown one.

    +1 for Hedon video which is the best so far in my opinion :)

    This video is so ordinary it hurts. I dont know if the band had any say in this, but I think that they mustve had control over the visuals at least (if not over the choice of the song). But then the budget comes to mind etc etc - Im happy with the music, the rest is not so important after all.

    Yeah, it seems they wanted to maintain LTA's video style, but LTA is so much better :erk: .

    Yeah, I expect a lot from Misery's Crown too, it might well be DT's greates video :kickass: .

    They said sometihng about that video in the interview in Spanish, I think thah they already took some shots and that they plan to release it as soon as possible :) .

    @Marduk: Do ye think DT nowadays have budget problems? I'm not so sure about that.

    Do you think the band paid for the making of the video? And do you have an idea how expensive it is to shoot even a simple clip like that?

    my fav is monochromatic stains. I love how it's made.
    if I had to choose among the "normal" ones, with the band members playing in it, I'd go for Hedon too.

    I think the new video is pretty nice, I especially like the part when Mikael says "I let my focus shift" and the camera goes slightly fuzzy. I think that was pretty cool idea. But alas, Hedon is still my favourite video as well, followed by Lost To Apathy, and finally Therein, which I like a lot, despite it's experimental approach.

    I must say I really like this new video, even though I'm not terribly fond of Focus Shift as a song (except for the great solos). The video is simple, yet effective and portrays the band well. The editing is flawless and the "shifting focus" trick works surprisingly well. I don't get what people are complaining here.

    Of all the DT videos, I think the one for Monochromatic Stains is the best, even though I remember criticising it quite a bit back in 2002. Its uniqueness makes it refreshing to see every once in a while even five years after it was made.

    I know videos are videos and bands aren't actually playing... but it'd be a lot better imo if Mikael had a microphone. It's kinda like if the rest of the band were air-guitaring. Other than that it kicks ass, I like vids that focus on the band rather than some montage of images
