    that's for "hard rock" or we were once metal, but have since discovered that we actually make enough money to rent a warehouse or otherwise break in long enough to shoot a video.

    said videos MUST at some point include one of the following:

    1. rain on drumkit.
    2. shots of the band headbanging furiously while playing the song... no cables or amps in sight.
    3. lightining.
    4. close up of "metal face" :erk:
    5. fire.
    6. snow, lights flickering, reindeer, and other gr1m paraphenalia

    ^I've never really considered reindeer to be gr1m before, though.

    They would be grim if they had red eyes instead of a red nose. And scyth antlers.

    Symphony X doesn't need video. It's the audio that matters.

    And Romeo.

    I think "Wicked" would be quite cool for a SYMX video. Imagine the band ripping it up in some god forsaken place, e.g. mountain or desert with bad weather (rain, wind or snow). I'd find that rather cool, much like like Slayer's "Seasons in the Abyss". Could well go without cheesy sword and armour stuff

    there is one law that must be followed should such a thing occur:

    throughout the video, it must be obvious that no one is plugged in. they must rock out hardcore despite no sound coming out, as the 'sound' for the video would clearly be the studio track. on top of this, they must act as if they are playing for a crowd of a quarter million. in the desert. or on the mountain with bad weather. with swords. and cheese.

    A while back I was listening to The Odyssey and I thought of two songs that would make awesome videos: Wicked and King of Terrors.

    The former has the band rocking out in a spooky graveyard, with a destroyed church nearby. The latter is in a medieval-looking dungeon area, with lots of pits and swinging pendullums.

    However, it would take a lot of money to make videos like these look good and not overly cheesy, and it's probably not something I could see Symphony X spending their money on. Most videos are made for mainstream, radio-friendly songs, and nothing in Symphony X's catalogue fits that description.

    Lucca FTW

    every video should have Lucca doing something. And fabio swinging a sword over his head in a circular motion while letting out a gigantic bitch scream.

    :lol:

    I agree. And for the "Luca doing something"-part I think it would be insanely cool if he was reading a book or perhaps collecting insect samples. Or baking bread. :kickass:

    I think those Advent Children Sym X AMVs that Sabin17 made were pretty badass.
