Hey guys ! As I said yesterday, we were heading off into the snow to shoot a vid for a cover song we did. Well, that song was 'Souls Of Black' by Testament and now I can share the results with you !

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tda0cH0Ja7k

It's not going to win any awards for movie making but it's just a bit of fun and not meant to be the most 100% professional thing in the world... I hope you enjoy watching it as much as we did making it ! smile.gif

Yes, totally... I don't think we would have hit any of the right notes if we had to do it for real !! ohmy.gif

Not at the moment, we literally only just finished this one.. but there's plenty more on our Youtube of our own music ! :-)

I was a bit....let´s say..amused...at the beginning. Far too many wanna-be Goth/Death Metal "stars" out there making "videos" for YouTube.
I knew it had to get better because YOU are in it! smile.gif
Vocals and guitars were flawless so for me this is the opposite of the great "music video" of the "Not the 9 o´clock news" Crew named - "Nice video! Shame about the song!" smile.gif smile.gif

Nice Video/Shame about the Song!

Heey that looks great man! smile.gif I like your styling, you rock! smile.gif

Since it's a winter weather, it is usually not good lightning in those days and colors may seem a bit weak. Have you tried boosting the colors a bit or inserting some cool effects? You guys turned out great, and the singer has great outfit, perhaps some thunders and lightning would look good! smile.gif

Thanks Ivan ! smile.gif

I did think about it.. but I just decided that it's only going to be a Youtube video after all so thought I'd leave it mostly natural. I just sharpened to make it a bit more stark and bleak !
