I covered this video when it first came out, back in 2012. In it, lead singer Simone Simons gets caught in a web of sticky oily gunk. It’s one of my favourite music videos, mostly due it being a band I love doing a song I like and accompanying it with a messy element. You can watch it below.
What I wasn’t aware of at the time was that Simone has her own blog, SmoonStyle, and on it she wrote about the song and the video shoot, with some behind-the-scenes pictures. Maybe it’s just that I’m a bit of an Epica fanboy, but I loved reading this post. I’ve seen behind-the-scenes videos for music videos before, but it’s great seeing a first-hand account. It’s also great that she calls it “the hardest, dirtiest and most fun recording [she’s] ever done”. The post can be found through this link. Enjoy!
