Video of the Week- Remainder The Black Dog

It’s something special when a music video director takes the time to really create a video that compliments and works with the music that the artist provides them.  This is the case with this weeks Video(s) of the Week.  Danish artist Lasse Hoile has really outdid himself on the direction a trio of videos for the upcoming Steven Wilson(Porcupine Tree) solo album, Grace for Drowning.  Each one captures the feel of the song and transcribes flawlessly into visual form making very dramatic and surreal images. Mr. Hoile has worked closely with Steven Wilson and Porcupine Tree in the past(visually and musically) and I hope that he continues to contribute his excellent visual abilities to the band well into the future.  He has also directed and edited the videos for “Porcelain Heart” and “Burden” from Opeth‘s album Watershed.

Grace for Drowning is set to be released on September 26th, 2011 and will be a double album consisting of two 45 minute CDs.  Check it out.  Peace Love and Metal!!!

P.S. Watch in HD(720p and up) it’s worth it.

  1. It’s nice to see someone take the time to record meaningful videos that are worth wathing. He is obviously very talented. Any word on him talking about making a full-length movie? I bet it would be visually stunning and would probably make a good quiet-suspense film.

    I did like both of those Opeth videos you mentioned. They were great visually stunning videos in addition to Opeth’s awesome music. Nice find, I will have to add him to my list of upcoming albums to get…after the September slaughter.
