This week’s pick was a little bit tricky. I definitely wanted to do Within Temptation, but the only video off of their latest album, Hydra, wasn’t a song I wanted to feature, even though I like the song. But the songs I wanted to feature don’t yet have a video, so I decided to take a step back to their previous album, The Unforgiving, because it was this album that finally brought me on board with this band, notably with the single, “Faster.” Which I’ll listen to on repeat for freaking hours when the mood strikes me. The album itself is, for lack of a better term, a concept album, in that it tells a big story and is even based on a comic book series. You can read all about it here.
The video I selected isn’t anything super exciting, just the band performing with some nifty special effects, which in and of itself can be cool depending on what tickles your fantasy. So, without further adieu, here’s “Faster”!
Like it? Love it? Hate it? Sound off below!
Reminder: Music Monday is about the music, not the videos. Videos are just the medium I’m using to share the music, and some videos aren’t actually videos at all. Enjoy the songs, but if YouTube forces you to watch some sort of advertisement before you can get to the music, please be patient.
