Here are my top 6 favourite videos of 2013 (in no particular order). There have been a lot of good Dark alternative songs released in 2013 but not many have been released with an artistic or thought provoking video which adds to the the pleasure of watching a video with a great song. The worst types of video I think are just to show a random selection of images, a band playing onstage(unless from a live concert) or playing their instruments in a field, dancing in a field, walking down a street, singing on a cliff etc with nothing to stimulate the mind visually or think more about the lyrics or meaning of the song.
GHOST – Year Zero
Year Zero – The video caught my attention after a friend posted it online. A great visualisation which reminds me of “The Omen”, “Rosemarys Baby” and other classic 70’s Satanic films which adds to the sinister suspicion of who is under the masks and robes of Ghost. The most perfect, catchy, disturbing power pop sing along song about satan. A supreme demonstration of Papa Emeritus II vocal talents. A great dark rock song!
