Matt’s Top 5 Music Videos of 2013
Posted by RiffRaff
Simple enough, here are my picks for my favorite music videos of 2013. Enjoy and share your picks! Peace Love and Metal!!!
#5: Intronaut – Harmonomicon
Trippy and great camera shots. Simply beautiful cinematography. Great song as well.
#4: Revocation – Fracked
Beyond how kick ass the song is I really enjoyed the collage of anti-fracking images, video clips, and animations which really worked well for creating an anti-establishment metal video. Good on Revocation for bringing this travesty being done to our planet for oil to a wider audience.
#3: Maximum the Hormone – え・い・り・あ・ん (A.L.I.E.N.)
This video perfectly captures the sheer insanity of Maximum the Hormone. I love how they start with the standard ‘band in a basement’ cliché’ and then turn it on its head. I’m especially fond of the cool effects when the ‘funk’ part kicks in. If you’ve never experienced MtH before, be prepared for a faceful of WTF.
#2: Haken – Cockroach King
I f’n love The Muppets. So, when I caught wind of a video for a prog metal band heavily inspired by Jim Henson’s legacy I was quick to check it out. Little did I know just how perfect the Muppets by way of Bohemian Rhapsody would make for such a perfect music video that fits the song better than a pair of tailored Levis. Favorite scene, when the Muppet spits out the insects, made me lol so hard.
#1: Toxic Holocaust – Acid Fuzz
Perfection. This is possibly the most metal music video ever. The video for Acid Fuzz should be the blueprint on how to make metal videos. Colors, animation, metal, decapitation, sharks ripping people in two, drugs, hallucinations, explosions, boobs, skulls, demonic conjuring, and the list goes on and on. Just watch this masterpiece of a video.
