Reggie’s (Plantera7’s) Favorite Videos of 2012

FilmAfter 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…

So Far, Everything I Expected and More

Those of us who are eagerly awaiting the release of the Mikael Åkerfeldt and Steven Wilson collaboration, Storm Corrosion, have been pleasantly treated with our first good taste of things to come.  The official video for the song “Drag Ropes” is out now and both the video and the song are great.  Both the artists styles shine though throughout the song and meld together wonderfully.  It is more or less how I was envisioning it would sound like.  It’s creative, experimental, dark, haunting, and beautiful.  Same goes for the Tim Burton-esque video directed by Jess Cope.  Check it out and let us know what you thought!  Peace Love and Metal!!
