I’ll admit it; this video confuses me a bit. I mean, I kinda get the musical angle – it’s very folk-metalish, and the Viking imagery evoked not least by the album cover are easy enough concepts to grasp. Very Lord of the Rings. Why the fuck they’re fighting whatever it is that can’t be combatted sitting on their asses (I get muddy on this point) with crossbows and swords when they’re clearly in the age of the combustion engine and colour photography is slightly odd, but that’s just me.
Either way, it’s a well shot video and the song ain’t half bad, if you’re into that sort of thing. Dan liked it well enough when he reviewed their most recent album (also called Stand Up And Fight, funnily enough. They likes the fightings it seems.) back in February.
