S.O.S.

Great song, great video, very interesting concept and a bit spooky too.

I think S.O.S is the only good video from Strato. Well, maybe Maniac Dance too :)

Most are pretty bad as with lots of metal videos. I try not to watch any these days as they are off putting.

Well, music wise I like the Black Diamond video. But, I love the special effects&message of the Hunting High and Low video.

Maybe I'm reading too much into the song&video, but it seems it is speaking out against materialism and the trappings of great wealth. For instance, the wealthy guy gives the homeless men his cell phone&his fancy car. And it seems the guy is not too happy with his white collar job&all.
btw, does the running wolf/shepard dog represent freedom?
There is lots of symbolism in HHAL video.

'Maniac dance' is not in the list. The video is pretty well done, great photography and edition.

Eagleheart video is great, but I think the speed-effect becomes the main attraction. I like how it looks, but, for example in Maniac Dance video, the technical specs are used to 'tell something', not just a cool looking effect.

Yeah, I agree about that in Eagleheart is just the look, which is cool... The highspeed effect is great... The matter is that I don't like so much the Maniac Dance song... The video is nice, but also chaotic (of course, that the effect they were looking for) and I cannot see so well the action...

Mmm... Maybe I like more the Eagleheart video because I like more that song... :)

The SOS video is good. Is it just me, or doesn't the guy in the black robes resemble LURCH? :err: He supposed to be the "evil" influence, right? ???
And, the little boys--is it a coincidence that they resemble(probably)TT, TK&Jens as children? ???
