This week a look at two recently released videos from Sex Slaves and Falling Red; in a classic showdown I will have to ultimately decide between strippers and blood. Surprisingly, it’s a lot closer than you think.
The first video is from UK rockers, Falling Red. The video is for the song “Come On Down” from the EP “Hasta La Victoria Siempre.” We begin with the 1-2 punch of guitars and the band name, Falling Red, shown on a marquee, and then we’re off with two girls dancing on the stage in lingerie. The song begins with, “Friday night and I’m headed for the show…” then cuts to a seating area that may be a VIP or champagne room, although I doubt the latter because there is too much light. Here we find a girl in red lingerie stripping on a pole. We are 36 seconds in and already have three strippers. For those keeping score at home I don’t need too mention how impressive this is......
.....The second video features the New York City band, Sex Slaves, and their song, “Bloodlust,” from the album “Wasted Angel.” Recently the band was in northern Germany where they came across an old castle and decided to shoot a video. The castle is rumored to be haunted and the shoot had to be cut short due to a clanking sound from the basement. Given we are approaching Halloween; I am handing out a pre-video bonus point for the spookiness factor surrounding this video.
