Behemoth video still
Wheeeeee! I’m in an airplane at about 40,000 feet, traversing the continent from Seattle to Washington, DC, where I will sit in a windowless room for the next two days doing top secret work related to my fucking day job. I know I’ve just peaked your curiosity, but to be brutally honest (which is the only kind of honest we know how to be at NCS), a more fulsome description would bore you to tears.
Where was I? Oh yeah, I’m on an airplane. I have wi-fi, but it’s not good enough to stream anything, so I haven’t even watched the new videos collected in this post. Fortunately, my comrade DGR has, and he pounded out a few words for each one (except the last one) when he sent me the links. Take it away DGR…
BEHEMOTH: “MESSE NOIR”
Probably not safe for work, the middle section contains no nudity but that outfit is very form-fitting for that lady. You also get Nergal in full Lucifer garb. The costumes were designed by Sharon Toxic. It’s dedicated to the life and memory of H.R. Giger.
NIGHTRAGE: “STARE INTO INFINITY”
I swear, I have a review for this disc half-written. “Stare Into Infinity” is one of the slower songs on the disc; the band keep things pretty up-tempo on this one — save for the instrumental song halfway through. It’s a pretty steak-and-potatoes melodeath disc. Ronnie Nyman (the group’s new vocalist) also veers hard into Marco Aro scream territory. Can’t tell you how many times I thought it was him during this one.
Do not watch this video while eating, seriously. Goddamnit.
PALLBEARER: “WATCHERS ON THE DARK”
Okay, DGR didn’t send me the link for this one, and so these aren’t his words, they’re mine. As explained in the first paragraph above, I haven’t seen this video, but it’s Pallbearer’s first one ever, and the press release I received says it’s “epic and cinematic”, and press releases never exaggerate, so I’m including it here.
