Scar Symmetry’s new video for “The Iconoclast” is probably the epitome of what’s been going wrong with metal videos. They just look all lame, you know? Half the time, their vocalists are just… standing there. And when they do get animated, it looks ridiculous. On top of that, everything is blurry. If I wanted some eye strain and a headache, I’d watch Cloverfield.
What’s sad is that the song is pretty good, if not on the cheesy side of things at times, but the video is actually kind of embarrassing. It just figures, doesn’t it?
