Dragonforce - Operation Ground and Pound

At first I thought this was just going to be another average video, since it starts off with the band jamming in a waste land with giant air-ships coming out of skies and laying waste to everything in their path. Standard Gothanberg fare to go with the band's speedy power metal. But than the video takes a rather entertaining and comedic twist during the dual guitar solo when it pans out to show the two guitarists are actually playing a video game and they are controlling themselves playing guitar much like the video game Guitar Hero, only here they are using joypads and joysticks! There's even a funny shot of the singer in front of a green screen shaking his head at their antics! And the video ends with more of the band jamming it out till the end and the sunlight breaks through the clouds to shine on them on a cliff top.
Fun video and a rather catchy song. I've heard quite a bit about these guys and it's interesting to hear and see them in action.
Video Rating: ****
