It's Very Nice, would have Expected Much More From Full Sail Students though. All the Jitter and over saturating with lights...ehhh, well I guess Experience over practicality should have prevailed, what a shame.

Great song! I for one had no problem with the video; I enjoyed it. I like it when a shaky view actually works well with a song, and it did.

from about 3:35 to 4:20 is a bit out of place to me lol it's kinda death 'n roll, which a few songs on the album sound like that in some prts. sorta bothers me but the record still kicks ass. not better than riders of the plague tho.

my Florida's very own pride and glory \mXm/

i have yet to really get into this album. The first song(not the intro) just sounds so much like at the gates, he even says the words world of lies in the first f***ing verse, that i just turn it of. Maelstrom is badass though, so far i know that much lol. Im just so busy listening to allegaeon and new dimmu that its takin me a while to give the album a proper chance.

Hmm...well I am 1/2 owner of the company who did this video..I also directed this video...we all did a great job, and I think it looks amazing. The jitter effect was perfect for this song....and there's nothing "they did what they could with what they had" about it. They got exactly what they wanted, and they're happy with it, and that's all that matters, is that our clients are happy with the finished product.

Good for you Pia, I was just Stating the Fact That The Absence PAID for it, Not Metal Blade and YES THEY Praised you guys HIGHLY in OUR Interview with them. So YES "they did what they could with what they had" I Was There @ The Show the Night Before when they Earned the Money to pay you guys for this Video, and I was there the Day after they Shot it with you. I Didn't Down Grade your Work, I am Just Supporting The Absence, A Great bunch of Guys, a Great Band, Who don't Get the Support they Should be Getting!

As Programmer of 'Psycho Realms' on WMNF 88.5FM Tampa, I'm stoked for the Band. I was lucky enought to hear the songs from rough drafts to production, each a rare gem of its own. Now going on tour with 'Goatwhore', wow!! Thats a line up, allmost the same when I saw them play with 'Amon Amarth'.

I'm realy proud of everyone!! Keep It Heavy!!
