    I might have missed it if it was posted here before, but it's a simple game.

    Post one band (only one at a time, please), any band you wish to share, whose name starts with the letter alphabetically following consecutively after the first letter of the band from the previous post. Watch out for ninjas.

    I'll start with a band that starts with A, next is a band starting with B, then C, and so on. Since the board is in English, we'll stick with the English alphabet. :lol:

    That song is really cool. I'm not sure what to make of the music video, though! :lol:

    Hardly anyone knows about that band it seems (I am still yet to see anybody mention them on this forum here besides me), and they are my favorite, they pretty much have been ever since I discovered them back in 2001 when I was still in f*cking high school, lol.

    The music video, yeah... well they obviously had a very low budget, because with those lyrics they could have easily had some cinematic music video in some dark lair with snakes and actors, etc. I don't think Frode Glesnes (the vocalist/guitarist) is unaware of the comedic aspect of his acting in the music video, in fact I think he did it intentionally so as to not take the whole thing too seriously and make it fun (which is kinda smart considering they didn't have the budget to go all in on some big epic serious production). I think he acted perfect, he made it funny without making it feel too distant from the theme and feel of the music.

    You should check them out and spread the word about them (since it seems like hardly anyone even knows about them and their albums they've done), they really have created music that is very visionary, very cinematic in nature, where every song and album feels like it could be the soundtrack to a movie. They are a viking metal band, so every song is about Norse mythology, mostly centered around Odin and the Einherjer that have joined him in Valhalla after being slain. And every song does have the feel of some Viking setting hundreds of years ago just by the way it's orchestrated, nothing less than genius imo.

    But yes, I agree, that video does make me laugh every time, but I love it for that. Frode and Gerhard (the drummer and also writes the keyboard parts) write all the music, and they are both really good at both writing and playing their instruments. I love his sense of humor in his acting in the video, one of my favorite videos despite the small budget setting and stuff, lol.
