Western Australia / NEVERBORN "Always Watching Me" Metal video
« on: January 22, 2012, 09:07:21 AM »
Last night at Amps, Neverborn launched our Metal Vid for our song "Always Watching Me" from our third album "Decimator".  This was a year in the making and worth every second.  Over 50 crew, actors and extras were involved in this monster of a project, and it was all done by Steve from Leopard Productions for a minimum of cost and an absolute absence of fuss and problems.  The entire process was engineered by Steve from the original undead concept through to the storyboards, actors, extras, crew, filming, editing and last minute corrections, and he went about the whole process with an combination of excitement and infurating calmness. We would highly recommend him to any other local metal bands wanting to do something mental, and we invite you all to check out our new vid!

Clearly I have been misinformed.  I hope he kicks arse.

Just a quick update: 
Daz is in charge, so everything is going smoothly.    Some things are beyond his control - like this strange weather - but the storm is done, the skies are clearing and it is forecast to be showers free, so Amps will be pumping! 
Most importantly, the vid is done, final touches going on as we speak... and it looks awesome.   It will be projected on the big screen at Amps, and we really look forward to blowing you all away.

Thanks for the invite Jez and Co.

Luke from Sins Of The Father will be pounding drums for PSYCHONAUT at this show.

 :headbang:

Really?  I had heard rumour that he and Sins were finished, but never expected him to land on his feet so quickly, and with psychonaut no less.

Oh yeah, that makes sense.  I didn't even read it, I just copy/pasted.

That email address doesn't seem to work old boy.

Or maybe it is just me.

Thanks for the kind words, we shall not let you down.  I am sure the other bands will throw down too, I don't really know much about Cold Fate - I bought their CD and still haven't heard the thing - but Enforce and Psychonaut are always good live.  I wanna take this chance to thank the boys from all the bands for stepping in on what is essentially quite short notice to play this show with us.  It promises to be a belter.

Thanks for that.

How do you squeeze any talent into the vehicle Jez if your carrying all those props around dude?????
I don't have a lot of talent, but I have a long wheelbase van.

Jez, cant you make the extra effort & make a papier mache stage prop version of yourself?
Inspiring idea, I shall look into it.  Better make it robust, I am sure that when it is not in use on the stage you will want to take it home for a little private time.

I never understood why we seem to be the only band in town who likes to bring stage props to make shows more visual.  At the last gig we had the Demon keyboard stand and the two shaped keyboards, shaped kickskins and a demon facade hanging onto the front of the kit, our axe micstand and our two robot statues stage right and left.  If we can do it, other bands should be able to go to the effort too, it's a bunch of work to haul the stuff around, but it makes the gigs more fun to watch.  It doesn't have to be anything too strenuous, CDT in their horrid masks are always good value to watch.

Anyway, that's the sort of thing I would like to see more of, bands making more of an effort to make the stage more than just a raised piece of floor.

That's a shame.  Sins improved exponential over the last 2 years, I had thought that much of that improvement was attributable to Jack's frontman abilities.

Pretty bloody good, but I am gonna have to add to the chorous and say that some vocals would be nice.

I just want to be the first to say that last night was one of THE greatest local gigs I have ever been to and Dyson, Brad and anyone else involved are fucking legends for putting on a streamlined, well organised, well promoted and very well attended gig.  Bastardfest has no become the local gig that we will plan our entire year around, and if invited we will be absolutely stokes to play next year.

Barstardfest!

We DO support them, even encourage them.
 My comments were just meant to steer them down less expensive paths, not put a line through the idea.

Reading the intelligent posts by Perry and Row and the retarded ones from the usual retard element has got me thinking....

You COULD pull this off, but as a digital thing only.
 If you were dispose of the calendar idea and instead just have a new promo pic each day released not in print but released digitally as a free online download you could defer the prohibitive cost of printing and still have a pile of fun doing it.  You could feature a new band and with it a new pic each day, and done right it should turn heads.  

Maybe you could choose one band per fortnight and for each have the chicks in each set photographed 14 times, one pic for each day of the fortnight.  Or even better, instead of one band for a fortnight you can cycle through the 26 bands you promote so each day of the month is a different band being promoted.

Do your flash photo shoot thing and put it up online with band logos, links to songs and all that crap and it could be a useful promotional tool, one that bands would be happy to pay to use, and that covers the expense of your original outlay.  You would need plenty of chicks, plenty of pics and plenty or photoshop and uploading done, but it is way more practical that a printed calendar.

Just a thought.

I would offer a suggestion though:  This COULD work, but not really as a calendar with one lady on the page.   Groups of 5 or 6 ladies, both smoking hot and otherwise -  on a page acting the way you guys really are in reality - vibrant fucking dynamos - would work way better, not just wearing band t-shirts but actually with a concept.  For Naetu for example, all corpsepaint and darkness, for Wardaemonic more in the snowy forest.  For Neverborn more of a lunatic theme, Claim the throne dressed as tavern wenches or  warrior maids.  Malignant Monster it would be blood and dirt, Enforce Denin and Bourborn bottles, Nexus maybe an sci-fi theme.... so many bands, so many options but you get the idea.   

I really like this suggestion. Instead of your standard one-girl-per-page, get a group in each shot, and do each one with a theme that fits the band. That way, you wont run into any sort of ego/friendhsip ruining problems, as it's not all about looking smoking hot in each photo, but about looking like you're having fun! We have a lot of pretty girls in the local scene, but more importantly, they are fun people to hang out with. Focus on the fun rather than the sexy posing, with the band theme Jez mentioned, and I imagine a few people would be intersted in getting behind this.

Yeah Row, you are picking up what I am laying down.  Don't go for sexy, go for fun and real, and go all out on the costuming/set/background.  As long as the posing and photography is good, other details can be photoshopped in later.  Model looks are irrelevant in this case. and personality and playfullness comes to the front of the queue, given the choice I would go with nutballs every time.  I reckon Kristin, Lola, Munchy and Trease with their outgoing and slightly bent personalities would be perfect for this type of thing, they would go at it with a view to look crazy and metal, not pouting and primping like a boy band.  The thought of those four in straightjackets in a rubber room with our Logo behind it makes me cackle like SOD.

I think it is great that you want to do something for the local scene and I will be the first to retract my post here if it all goes to plan... but I think that this is a questionable idea Kate, it is going to need much in the way of doom insurance.

1. There are indeed some smoking hot ladies in the local scene, but they are metal chicks, incooperative to say the least.  Even if you CAN organise them, there are the bands to consider.  It is almost impossible to get bands together on something as important as a compilation, getting them together on this is just an exercise in the absurd.
 
2. Most of you chicks have blokes, and many of those blokes are locals too.  Maybe its just me, but I am not sure that all of them would want pics of their ladies dressed in something hot hanging on the inside door of their mates' toilets.  On the flip side of the coin, there is the opinion of the ladies in the scene who may not want their blokes ogling pics of these local ladies.  It is one thing to look at a hot chick posed in a provocative way that you DON'T know, quite another when it is ladies from the local scene we run into regularly.

3.  Pics of Trease, Ama, Alysha, Mads and other similarly lovely ladies would make a smoking hot calendar, but some of the ladies offering may not be hot, and you chicks are too soft hearted to tell them so.  Someone would have to wield the knife, and they are gonna lose friends, trust me. Once a pic is taken and put on a calendar it is forever.  It will be looked at, discussed, critically analysed, chuckled over and generally dragged back into the open until the end of time, so a band will want to choose the lady who promotes them, and it could be devastating if some lady gets knocked back by all of them.  Some of the best ladies in the local metal scene are really not calendar material, but I wouldn't trade them for Lara Bingle.

4. Ideas you come up with while drunk are not generally good ones. 


I would offer a suggestion though:  This COULD work, but not really as a calendar with one lady on the page.   Groups of 5 or 6 ladies, both smoking hot and otherwise -  on a page acting the way you guys really are in reality - vibrant fucking dynamos - would work way better, not just wearing band t-shirts but actually with a concept.  For Naetu for example, all corpsepaint and darkness, for Wardaemonic more in the snowy forest.  For Neverborn more of a lunatic theme, Claim the throne dressed as tavern wenches or  warrior maids.  Malignant Monster it would be blood and dirt, Enforce Denin and Bourborn bottles, Nexus maybe an sci-fi theme.... so many bands, so many options but you get the idea.   

Do it right, and we will be interested, but it can't be half-arsed or you are gonna wish you never bothered.

I have heard that with Ben leaving, Jarrad having family commitments and Cain busy with The Amenta, it may have been the last Malignant Show ever.  Again, just something I heard through the grapevine, not clarified in any way.  
Is there any truth to this?

Don't need to.  I have heard enough of your work to know it is good, it all comes down to our budget at the time.
