Flavour Of The Weak – End Of Days

Now, this has been a long time coming posting this to the website. I’ve been thinking a lot about how i would word what has turned out to be End Of Days last hurrah (at least, unless by some miracle the boys manage to get back together and give us a few more hits before the scene moves on from air banding) and i am failing to come up with words to type in to the keyboard. There is so much to be said about what makes this video so great, so flawed in places, so End Of Days. It’s the vision that myself, Jack and Jamie shared from day 1 air banding in my university room that first night when EoD was born.

The realisation of a dream.

Now this is without a doubt one of the greatest air band videos of all time. So just sit back, relax and enjoy what is currently the last EoD music video you are likely to see.

Flavour Of The Weak – End Of Days

Filmed with the help of Matthew Rushton and his friend Scotty Stephenson in Lancashire and beyond. What a fantastic day we had, early start, late finish. Great end result. Enjoy!

Shinobi vs Dragon Ninja #EoD

The Shinobi vs Dragon Ninja video came off the successful One Step Closer video. There are mixed feelings regarding this video, especially from the band itself. Here is my take on events surrounding SvDN.

We were offered by two University friends Rob and Dave to take a step back from our film making duties in this video, and concentrate on our performances, whilst they took control over the production side of things. Great we thought, it’s a chance for our first proper video to be made, hopefully resulting in even more views than the last video, but more importantly, a chance to make something decent and substantial. The day was cold, but it didn’t put us off from giving everything we had in to each and every take. We filmed at the train station car park in Stafford town, which was surprisingly quiet.. as though we had booked it out or something (which we hadn’t but we tell people we did obvs..). This meant the film had one location, and that was.. the station. Which again was disappointing, from an audiences point of view especially so.

The video does actually have a lot of life too it, and it is pretty neat in many ways, but it doesn’t really build on what One Step Closer (and The Middle) started, it is almost a step back, especially with some synching issues (which were out of our hands — Dave and Rob i don’t blame you.. but i do a little bit because you didn’t put enough effort in!!) but basically, although it’s a good video, and an awesome song. It wasn’t what EoD needed, and it was this video which put EoD off the map for a few months.. almost a year in fact. Until we eventually decided it wasn’t good to end it on this note, and it was back to having complete control over creativity in all future projects.
