What can I say about a song that is just bad-ass? How about…it’s really bad-ass! Darkness Within comes off Machine Head’s Unto The Locust, the awesomely awesome follow-up to the stellar The Blackening album. The song is powerful and the imagery in the video will probably piss off some individuals and/or groups, but that’s probably why it’s such a good video. There is some dark imagery and visuals in the video, but that matches the feel of the song, so great job to the director. As of this post, there is no video on YouTube just yet, so you have to catch it at this link. Have a great day!
Update 3 Aug 2012…It’s on YouTube, so here it is.
Since Machine Head’s new album, Unto The Locust (extended edition) will have two cover songs, I want to honor those bands for whom Machine Head is covering. Since MH did an excellent job covering The Police (Message in a Bottle) and Iron Maiden (Hallowed be thy Name), I am excited to hear new cover tunes of Rush (Witch Hunt) and Judas Priest (The Sentinel). Here is a double shot of Rush and Judas Priest for this week’s Video of the Week – Double Dip. I hope you had a great week.
