А мне понравилось, вот чисто кадры с группой вышли шикарно, как по мне ^___^ Люблю я эти фокусы-расфокусы, блики и слоумоушен)) А насчет сюжета, то лучше будет, разумеется, подождать полное видео. Плюс прочитать описание истории с офсайта, гораздо понятнее становится ^^
Thank you guys for all your great comments on “Faster”, we really appreciate your feedback!
There is a lot more to this song than what you know so far and shortly the story unfolds.
5pm CET, January 31 we will reveal the first of 3 short films on the website and our Facebook page.
These movies give further insight into the concept of our fifth studio album “The Unforgiving” and are based on the comic storyline; the characters are impersonated by actors. Each film is followed by a band performance that, all together, form a dark and compelling tale of life, love, revenge, rage, and regret.
The first movie, titled “Mother Maiden”, ties in with our first single & video for ‘Faster’, introducing the main characters of the narrative. British actress Dawn Mastin (Tom & Thomas, Down) performs the lead role.
All of our fans who share the “Mother Maiden” short film via their social network on Facebook or Twitter using a “pay-with-a-tweet” application, supplied on our various sites, will not only receive a brand new Within Temptation wallpaper in return but have exclusive access to an online listening party for the album pre-release.
SYNOPSIS of “The Unforgiving” short film series:
A powerful medium, Mother Maiden recruits lost souls to be part of her wraith taskforce to fight evil in all its forms. What better way to hunt serial killers than to use killers? Their servants are culled from genuinely remorseful souls; ones who may not have been cold-blooded killers, but those who did in turn take a life and are deeply sorry for their sins.
Guilt can be a powerful motivator…and redemption, even greater. They each carry a specific guilt about something they did in their lives. Mother Maiden offers them an opportunity to “make right what is wrong” by giving them missions and assignments to hunt down evil as a penance for their previous sins.
“The Unforgiving” is our first conceptual album and is based on the storyline of a comic written by Steven O’Connell (BloodRayne/Dark 48) and illustrated by Romano Molenaar (Witchblade/Darkness/X-Men). The comic consists of a prequel and 6 episodes which will be published every 2 months throughout 2011.
In addition to the comic, these 3 short movies we have produced will be released on a bonus DVD with the special edition of the album, alongside a documentary about the film production process.
“The Unforgiving” is quite unlike any previous Within Temptation album:
“We didn’t want to make a traditional concept album where you just make up a story and write lyrics to tell the tale,” “What we’ve always done in the past when we read a book or saw a movie, is that it inspires us to write a lyric or a song, and that’s how we wanted to approach this. We have 12 tracks and they’re soundtracks to the story.
“In a strange way, it also felt like we were getting back to our roots on this album,” he notes. “We come from the late ‘80s and early ‘90s, that’s our musical birthplace. You always want to do something new, but we also went back to that time and embraced it”.
