    I thought it was announced that it doesn't work for anyone out of the US? I could be wrong I just remember reading that somewhere!

    Awesome video. Watched it on You Tube some time back, have watched it many times since then. Russell Allen is so incredible. I am without a doubt his biggest fan on earth. He is one of the greatest vocalists that ever lived, and I put him up there with Lou Gramm and Paul Rodgers. (Bet he knows who they are, too..........)

    Great video. Saw it on YouTube too. Some parts cut--I understand that it must be done (in a warped way, for the average bloke who knows nothing of SyX, let alone prog), though I still would have wanted to see them on the video.

    Not being a douche...but I love the song. It's absolutely awesome. But their videos are too cheesy for me to watch man...they make me feel gay lol. I understand they need the swords and fighting and whatnot but it seems like they could do a much better job at production. -shrug-

    Seems like the video is missing something important; not sure what it is.

    Regardless...still my absolute favorite band no matter what.

    They just want to have a little fun with the songs' content. Considering that Romeo believes music is supposed to be an escape from reality, I'd say the videos were a success. Would you rather have shots of the band in various areas of New York City with Romeo shredding out his solo on top of a double-decker bus?

    As long as all members are wearing large amounts of bling and Allen has a golden grill.

    And seriously, considering that they have no budget to make it like The Lord Of The Rings or something, that video is quite good.

    :lol: If Rullo played drums with one of those pimp hats on I think I'd die of laughter!

    Agreed.

    To each their own, i can't argue with opinion. But really, in the end this kind of stuff is what metal is all about. I mean, can you imagine Maiden without a gigantic mummified Eddie popping out from behind the drum riser or cyber eddie coming to do a laser battle onstage? Where would Priest be without the S&M gear? It's like Manowar without the bikes. Metal was built on being over the top and at some point you just have to give in. I mean, i've had times where i'm like 'nah, that band is too gay even for metal', but cheese is always welcome. I think this video was done right, and while some of the CG wasn't the best, they did awesome on a budget.

    And if we're going to talk about videos on a budget that are still awesome, look no further than Flight of Icarus.
