But it's seldomely coming along that these videos have a quality that could even fit for showing off in a cinema. Such came to my mind when I saw Darling Down's video of "Never Tell". It could be taken out of one of those hard action films where things are set on trial and survival or death is what is the question.
While musically held as a strong symphonic metal band with very intense, female vocals the clip not "only" has a story which is worth following but it also makes use of special effects.
Those were also a big surprise to the band. By the end of the day the drummer of the band Ryan Hudson had to say about doing the movie:
"The best part of the video is all the gore. We filmed it with inspiration from Eli Roth and Quentin Tarantino. I was surprised to learn how the special effects makeup artist made blood splatter. Let’s just say there was a lot of spitting."
