This video is a reason why a lot of people think metal is weird.

Part of the fun and glory of metal is cosplay: the clothes, the costumes, the make-up, the OTT performances. If you like metal, you get it. If not, you never will.

But as Loudwire points out, there are bands who aren’t doing the genre any favour. Witness S.H.O.U.T. I’m not sure what’s happening here, but none of it is good.

    That is the most amateurish, horrible thing I have ever seen, both the music and the video. That’s not even metal! It’s a bunch of guys who have no talent whatsoever trying to be scary.

    It’s not metal. It’s not scary. It’s “brilliant envelope pushing” satire probably done by a bunch of university arts students for an assignment. And i bet they got top marks too”
