    I don't see it. Really. It looks weird and out of synch.

    It's nice that they're thinking about this, duality and contrasting artforms and all but... it looks stupid. Sorry.

    I just saw it for the first time on Headbangers Ball, I forget the band who's music video it was, but it was pretty silly.

    Well, I kind of like it, but I am pretty much clueless about ballet so I really don't know.

    lol they should try some Nightwish or Dragonforce, the dancing doesn't fit with the growls... I am interested in seeing the "Deliverance" performance though :kickass:

    Put that on mute, then put Det Som En Gang Var (not the album, I mean the first track on Hvis Lyset Tar Oss) by Burzum on... it fits a lot better.

    A while ago I saw ballet dancers dancing to Swallow the Sun. It DID look a bit weird.

    Entombed did something like that on the opera. I just think it seems pretentious really

    .

    Plus, I think that whole group of fans would be way more into it.
    I get the feeling these DM bands are just saying yes because they're like "holy shit, attractive, non-goth poser face girls want in on our music?? Let's do it!"
