In 9 days, we'll all be able to see the Maniac Dance video for free online, to my knowledge!

You can find the pictures from the shoot:

Awwwwwwww, Jorg's new hair style is so cute! Actually its functional- when you have kids that are of hair-pulling stage, you have to do that! :)

And I think that the video will be very much fun to watch&listen to. I like the song, so I think I will like this video. Seems to be Beautiful women in the video ;) As I said--just like Megadeth! ;) And, I like Megadeth. MotoPsycho. :)

There's a Queen poster in the background. :) And it seems, that the single will be out only on 8th of aug. :( But I hope, that I still can buy it in Wacken... maybe from the guys. Who knows? ;)

COOL 8) There's some positive news for a change! Now I will also be able to listen to the whole track instead of that one minute clip over at that other site! @ Those who've heard the whole song...Is there a guitar solo in the song? Thanks in Advance.

Yes, the drumset is really so small. Maybe they want to catch the notsobigpowermetalfans too.

The girlS are cute. ;) But I don't care about them too much. Let them eat cake.

I think the same!
I like the scenery, actually the messed up place reminds me of some parts on "The Wall" movie when the guy is totally disoriented and broke down his apartment.

and the girls are beautiful indeed... but too skinny :yuk:

They doesn't seem THAT skinny to me. Just go to Somalia and you'll see what 'skinny' means :lol:

hauahuahau you're right... some kinds of dance sometimes demands a weightless body, specially if the guy needs to lift the girl from the ground :lol:

some time ago I thought that to be that thin would be great, but I realized that hugging such skinny people ain't that cool... too much skin and bones =P

Well, they would not sell many records with a video containing fat, spotty models guzzling cream cakes and flab wobbling about while they danced.... :(

I saw many good dancers, that have fat on them, but it's true, that most of the good dancers are skinny (bitch... quoted from Eric Cartman :D ). But imho, the third girl, who was not mentioned as the best so far, looks the best. I like black hair. :) The blonde doesn't look any beautiful for me... sorry.

Unless it was rap video. :lol:
There was a video once that got played very often on MTV about "I Like Big-Butted Women", or something like that! :) They had good self-esteem, thats certain. But, BBW can dance pretty good, too. Its all in the moves. :)

Sometimes people are hated because they look OK or are not fat. I think that's wrong! I'm not fat and i look OK but I'm nice in many other ways. And i hate when jelous people cut me because they feel ugly.

If some guys don't like fat or ugly women it should be their business..

Well said! I am thin too, and why should I give a shit the fragile egoes of fat people with low self esteem, if they are gonna attack me out of jealousy? Is it my fault that models are thin? Is it even my fault if I am thin? To some extent we can't control our physical shape. I can't get fat, but most fat people can get thin if they really want to.

OTOH, I realise that I am a hypocrite. When I first saw that pic of Lauri, I thought..... fwooargh!! :oops: But I don't have a preference for fat or thin men, I just don't like 'em over 150 kg. :wink:

I know what you mean. When I was in High School the other girls hated me because I developed before they did, had flawless acne-free skin&beautiful thick hair with lots of body.
No fragile ego here! Since that's so important! ;)
But, to judge people by their appearance on any level is shallow, no matter what psychological excuse you give it. Girls commit suicide&have eating disorders over issues like this. Oh--I guess thats THEIR tough problem, though, isn't it? :?
And I am glad I am not cold-hearted enough to think people judging others harshly by appearance sake is OK.

Just let someone make fun of anyone in the band's appearance negative-wise&see how fast we all jump on their case! :)
Oh, Oh I protests too much I think!

And, I think the video clip is great, btw! ;) I don't think its going to give anyone the influence to get anorexic. ;)

good for you a very respectable and valid point. but try to think from the uglier (from their point of view, i SWEAR i am not trying to offend anyone) point of view. and everyone judges everything on looks, its human nature, walk into a dirty or old restaurant you'll have second thoughts about eating there again regardless of the food. you walk to a hospital with a sulky receptionist you will keep that image with you. im not defending that, im just telling you that is how the human brain works

Well, your examples were extreme, but I was referring to PEOPLE--beings with souls&feelings. The best friend I ever had was a 250 pound girl with glasses&stringy-hair. Our roads took seperate paths, but our friendship will never be forgotten.
Anyway, as people get older, SOME get wiser&realize what I'm saying is true.
We ALL get old(if we are lucky)&"ugly"(by society's standards)....maybe thats Mother Nature's way of paying us back for being shallow assholes when we are younger. ;) Everything in life has it's price. ;)

This video will be out in just a few more days. I think with the music&all, it would be a great exercise video. And thats a compliment!
