Video reminds me so much of Theodor Kittelsen's portrayal of the black plague, here's some examples: http://www.kittelsen.ru/archive/hun_farer_landet_rundt3.jpg

Anyway, no band performance in the video, that's a shame....

This song sounds quite good, while the video doesn't impressed me to much...

The song is okay for being Ensiferum, they've done so much better. As long as the other songs on the album is better I'm sure it will be great.

I hate videos. The singer who isn't really singing never looks legit. They could atleast try.

Well, the song is top - video let's say "typical" - maybe i'll reconsider when i get the album- (and explore the lyrics, and connect 'em with the whole concept-wish it was included with the album though!). Now about the plague-reaper-guy : maybe he was the reason of the fires that devastated many parts of Europe this summer-We have a major suspect here;D... EDIT: Ensiferum, kick his ass - a punch on my behalf too!

This video is terrible.

Yeah, not too impressed w/ the video. I like the song better.
The girl kept looking like she was about to burst out crying: 1:22 & 4:05.
But at least the "zombies" gave me a laugh.

For me the video is good and of course the song is great

Isn't the charm of the video that is it rather rubbish?

I know there are links between the bands, but this sounds so much like Wintersun, who is copying off who now?

The hole is guarded by elves and goblins all wearing viking horny helmets, shrouded by a magical mist (getting in to the software and wiping away all the work on the new album with an evil laugh, ha ha haaaaa).
