Black Lotus Records DVD - Sampler
(Black Lotus Records)
approx. 50min

Unusual enough for a smaller label, Greek Black Lotus decided to release a label sampler in DVD-format, consisting of 12 videos. To be honest, I never really understood why Metal bands should use marketing tools such as video clips since there's hardly any airplay for it and due to the low budgets the results are, frankly put, underwhelming in almost every case. And this sampler offers no exception to the rule. The "highlights" are delivered by NAER MATARON who come up with a simple, yet atmospheric black 'n white piece and NIGHTFALL with a not too exciting, but professional work. The rest is a mixture of amateurish live-recordings in very poor bootleg-quality (THANATOS, LUNA FIELD) and rehearsal shots by (at least to me) rather unknown Power Metal acts such as INACTIVE MESSIAH or BATTLEOAR. But the worst is definitely saved for last with the video for ANGELS 'Don't Wanna Run'. There's another clip by this incredibly untalented young woman opening this audio-visual "Geisterbahn" where she's presenting her unique selling points in a tight red leather dress. But the clip for the aforementioned ballad that closes the whole thing is truly one of a kind. If you've ever seen one of those dilettant videos where East European ladies get rid off their clothes that are shown on television in the later hours of the night (and I'm sure you have, filthy little bastards!), you already know what to expect here. Except the girl stays dressed and the music in the background is even worse. Well, if all that could not keep you away from this, pay a visit to the labels website at www.black-lotus-recs.com.
