After looking at my top 10 favorite videos of the year, I can imagine I missed out on so many cool videos. Since seeking out videos on YouTube is pretty much my only avenue for visually stimulating music, I miss out on quite a bit due to lack of time. If the could only be extended a couple more hours…
The other best avenue for checking out cool videos is through you readers, bloggers, and friends on facebook or other blog sites and I thank you for opening my eyes each year to so many awesome bands. Below is a list of videos I thought were cool enough to make my top 10 for 2012. I will keep my commentary short and let the videos do the talking because that’s what they are supposed to do. And if you watch these videos and understand the meaning behind the music, then the video served its purpose. I do have one exception and I will explain that one when I get to it at #5.

We are going to try something new at A Metal State of Mind…a video battle. If you guys and gals want to “play along” this is something we were thinking of posting weekly. Check it out!
For this week, I decided to choose similar style bands that both have new videos and also new albums. I decided to call it The Battle for Supremacy since both bands are basically at the edge of something bigger than themselves, but can’t quite seem to “get there.” Maybe Trivium has a slight edge, but they are basically in the same ballpark. The videos are Trivium’s Built to Fall and Chimaira’s Year of the Snake. If you want to play, all you have to do is watch and vote. In the next installment of Monday Metal Madness, we will announce the winner and set up a new poll and then keep it going.
