MTV2's Headbanger's Blog issued the following update:

"It's not hard to tell which Nostradamus Quatrain Judas Priest's new video "War" is about. As Jim Morrison sang so long ago: "This is the end/you're only friend/the end." "War" illustrates the apocalypse biblical-style with stunning computer animation that looks like an ass-kicking new video game.

The vid features witches practicing magic then being burned at the stake, a tyrannical ruler exerting fascist control, the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse storming through the sky, fire spreading across the earth, winged beasts reigning destruction and lots more imagery that would have make Hieronymus Bosch giddy with delight. Priest are nowhere to be found in the clip neither in actual nor animated form but their operatic new music echoes through the video, creating a thunderous soundtrack for the devastation."

I saw this video a day or two ago, it was pretty boring. The song revolves more around vocals than the rest of the band if that makes any sense.

What a crappy video! Bah!
WorpeX - 24.06.2008 at 16:47  
Ya, the video isn't too good... the song is rather boring as well.

Yea, nothing special...

Really, really bad video. The song is epic as hell, I love it well, the video is also epic but fails hard.

The song likes me, but the video..... well.... I don't like it... I was expecting more from the Metal Gods

wtf, i thought judas priest was a kickass hardrock band. this crap better be just the intro i hope. both video and song suck
Nickferatu367 - 25.06.2008 at 01:07  
was there anyone in the band who was thinking "this is not a good idea" when whoever thought of this? War is a boring song, the video looks worse than Wildest Dreams by maiden, and it's more confusing than anything.
JRS890 - 25.06.2008 at 01:09  
love the song "War" but the video just like every other priest video, it sucks.

i never liked a priest music video i always found that they were very badly done.

maybe breaking the law and painkiller are the only good ones.


turbo has got to be the worst.


this song goes good with the concept album.

I didn't like the video but the song es good... Why they choose this song? I think there're better songs on the album like the same "Nostradamus"
Arian Totalis - 25.06.2008 at 06:01  
lol, what's up with all the traditional NWOBHM bands releasing CG Videos? First Maiden with their new album, now priest.
