Hello world, we are back again with your favourite artiste’s top 5 influential/favourite music videos. Sam is the vocalist and lead composer of the Kenyan band called Rash. As we all know Rash bagged the award for best rock video in the 1st edition of our ARMA awards 2015. Interestingly enough, his birthday happens to be today. So on behalf of the AudioInferno team, I wish you a happy birthday Sam, keep on rocking \m/. Enjoy his top 5 rock videos…
Feed the Machine by Red
The reason I like RED (my favourite Christian band) is because, just like their music, (they incorporate an orchestra), the videos are very cinematic and storytelling. They look high-budget like something from a blockbuster movie.
The Vengeful one by Disturbed
This one employs animation and has a shock-value aspect to it, but ultimately has a strong message of how the media is brainwashing us. Once again using their mascot “The Guy”
Heroes of our time by Dragonforce
This is speed metal at its best. And this song introduced me to this genre, thanks to a friend of mine called James Mburu. I just like this video because it’s so badass! The speed in which those guitars are played is just mind-blowing! And can we talk about the hair? Like C’mon! I don’t think the band would be as badass if it wasn’t for the hair. Just saying
Love and Meth by Korn
Another video that shows the ravages of drug use. They were very creative acting a puppets/ marionettes being led by a conductor whose body starts to contort like a scene straight out of The Exorcist. The video is kinda off-putting which I really like.
Smells like by Teen Spirit by Nirvana
I wish teen movies could be depicted like it was in this video. The audience in this basketball court (you can’t have a teen movie without prissy cheerleaders) basically transformed to march the energy of this iconic song.
So that’s it for today guys, keep on rocking and support your local bands.
