    That is one of the cheesiest videos I've ever skipped through (I couldn't watch it without fast forwarding through parts).

    I really don't like downing things.....but my god that was awfully cheesy.  I was expecting some heavy metal.  That was terrible.

    Crappy video for a crappy game.  Go figure.

    In a way i feel it's a corny video and the music reminds me of Quiet Riot for some reason.

    Once you get past the cheesy and lame reaction,it actually is accurate to the gameplay and graphic's,go figure.I look at it like,at least they're not trying to make it look better than what it is.It's actually pretty decent with more polish and ummph coming in next few month's,or so I imagine!

    Oh God... really? I can't believe I gave these assholes $40.

    NEWS FLASH!

    THIS is metal: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n9AcG0glVu4

    THIS is metal: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Jfso3CiHwN8

    And even THIS is metal: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0jgrCKhxE1s

    This video is about as metal as a pink bonnet in a field of daisies (no, not flesh eating chrome daisies either). I will admit though that it's really cute how they tried to emulate the storytelling of Brutal Legend (and failed miserably) right there in the beginning.

    Although, I can draw another parallel: You know the crappy teeny-bopper band (a parody of crap like Limp Bizkit, no doubt) in the beginning of that game? That's the kind of band that did the song for this video.

    When your ad campaign is more of a joke than the one for Scarlet Blade, you've officially failed at marketing.

    Edit: And yes, I'm aware that it's mostly done in parody. It still sucks.

    It's a sad day indeed when a family is too afraid of reprisals to publicly thank somebody for saving their lives.

    I'm pretty sure the point is,compared to other mmo trailer's this is absolutely heavy metal.Don't compare it to actual metal music,compare it to the soft music we hear in other trailer's.Make's sense aye!

    it doesn't need to be Ozzy when the best other mmo's do are like,A Flock of Seagull's.

    Queue the angst ridden , if it isn't angry GWAR , all black , and some lead singer trying to sound like a pissed off frog , it's not metal.

    Reminds me of the early Metallica and Megadeth "I only own black t-shirts" crowd in high school in the 80's arguing about who's more "metal".

    Hilarious.

    Well that was... retarded. That video, plus the ads being displayed here at MMORPG.com all equal up to one poorly run promotional campaign. I get that it's supposed to be a joke, but I'm not laughing and I doubt anyone else is either. Bad idea SOE, if you can't take the game seriously then no one else is going to either.

    Not bad,some of the lyrics could have been a little less cheesy  lol.

    Over the mountains and magma ^^

    Cactii NOT METAL

    Chickens NOT METAL  haha

    I really wonder if companies like SOE and such are really going for stupid anymore.Seem's ad's/trailer's are just plain dumb for many game's.The only trailer in the last year that I thought was really good,is the launch trailer for TSW.It really gives you a feeling of the ambiance and setting for the game.For me,it's the best I've seen since the launch trailer for WoW TBC and Wotlk.

    For one this wasn't METAL !  sounds more like Winger with a sore throat.

    WOW!!! <-- shock not the game :) 

    I agree with most of the comments here. It seemed rushed and hastily written. 

    I have played DP and well quite frankly they should sneak out into the mmo world while they fix the game not come out kicking and screaming "HERE WE ARE!!!" unfortunately as stated already this clip really does represent the game accurately.

    Clearly their ad campaign is working perfectly, 2 pages of you guys arguing over what is metal, now what better way to get peoples attention...like it or not ads are not about like or dislike, its about getting your attention, pretty sure its done its job.

     

    As for all you guys debating what is or isn't metal all I can say is #NOTMETAL :P

    I grew up in the 80's and it brought back all those good memories of the cheezy Hair Metal Bands... ROCK ON BABY!!!!

    Hated it. Cheesy as hell. Sadly, it promotes the game as a JOKE. 

    Brad McQuaid Quote:  So, God-willing, the Pantheon: Rise of the Fallen team and I will be able to make or allow that magic to happen a third time, and it too will be not just a great game, but also that catalyst again that brings people together, sometimes out of their comfort zone, learning how to work together not just tactically in a virtual world but also socially in the real world.

    Wow, the song reminded me of true metal. None of this garbage with morons gurgling and bellowing into the microphone. Stuff like http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-o9tj-xH1qU is not metal.
