Halloween is here and to celebrate this edition of Music Match we’ll feature 3 spooky music videos to go along with the holidayso enjoy the music recommendations and awesome music videos for a playlist to listen and watch through with your friends at a party.

Ozzy Osbourne – “Bark at the Moon”

Combining the story of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde along with the WOlfman and a bit of Dracula for this music video that only Ozzy himself would be able to pull off without many people questioning the decisions. The music video really is something to behold while the song I don’t find it my style at least for a metal song it is easy for pretty much anyone to listen through as it

Listen back.. Adema Insomniac’s Dream

Adema is one of those bands that got big at the peak of nu-metal’s popularity but sadly that meant it was all downhill from there. Luckily before all that happened they were a rising success with their nu-metal defining first album but before they ever released a second one we got this EP to tide us over. Mostly consisting of remixes, a cover and a few new tracks this was too little to keep the momentum going as nu-metal began to die but let’s take a quick listen to it and judge it.

The EP begins with Immortal which worked for the revival of the Mortal Kombat franchise even if it was just a continuation it was marketed that way since it was the first game in current gen systems and it had been a while since the last game. This helped the song get a lot of airplay though that didn’t seem to help the band much, mixed with random live footage and in-game footage of Mortal Kombat Deadly Alliance you do have some scenes of Marky Chavez singing in a CG Mortal Kombat ring along the band, this is easily the best part of the video though it should’ve tried to use this a little bit better. The song doesn’t fit Mortal Kombat even if the lyrics feature things that happen in the franchise, at least the song is decent even if nothing particularly special about it.

We then get Shattered which was a b-side from their self-titled album released in some international releases. I can see why it didn’t make the original cut since even if not bad it doesn’t fit as well with the rest of the more energetic self-titled album. The Alice in Chains cover of Nutshell is not particularly bad but like a lot of covers they fail to give it a spin of their own and end up sounding inferior to the original.

We then get two remixes, first with Freaking Out” (Chris Vrenna Remix) and “The Way You Like It” (Sam “Sever” Citrin Remix) but neither is particularly good, the first one doesn’t even make that many changes and the few that they do mostly make the song worse with only a few added bits being better, the second one is a little bit better but mostly just an inoffensive remix. We also get a lvie version of “Do What You Want to Do” (Live) which is ok and “Giving In” (Radio Mix) which no one asked for except maybe a completist who wanted that version but it’s barely any different.

Music Match Archive

Music Match is all about discovering new music and finding cool music videos, any genre of music is welcome as long as the song and/or music video is cool enough to share. It can be hard to find new music sometimes so here we have a mix of old stuff you may have forgotten and new stuff that you will be glad you learned about them. I try to mix with something more mainstream to something more underground and feature different genres. Also important that the music video is unique or cool enough to watch on its own, there are plenty of awesome music videos out there and it’s up to us to share some forgotten ones.

Here we have an archive of all the previous Music Videos featured, search by band or click on one randomly to find something you may like. Some weeks feature some type of theme between the songs features and others don’t. We have Music Monday’s in MiscRave which usually features a new volume o Music Match though sometimes we have album reviews and the like.

3 Summery music videos – Music Match V7

In today’s Music Match Volume 7 we have 3 summery music videos. Unlike the past Summer Music Matches which actually had summer music videos, these ones are not so much about summer or invoke the feeling but did originally air or were featured for the most part during the summer months which is why I associate them as “summery” even of not “summer” music videos.

Listen back.. Kittie: Spit in your eye DVD

I want a piece of your soul!
I want you!
I want to know what you’re all about!
gimme! gimme!

KiTTiE was a popular all girl nu-metal band in the early 00’s that quickly rose and disappeared from the spotlight but “Spit in your eye is” a VHS chronicling their adventures on their first tour so it is able to give a snapshot of what the band was like at that time specific time so let’s take a look.

Listen Back.. System of a Down – SOAD self-titled album review

I had just begun 7th grade when I was talking about music with a friend and back then I didn’t have a wide variety in my taste in music but each of us mentioned “one” was a great album, the one he mentioned was System of A Down’s self-titled album. We each lent each other an album and began to listen. I don’t really remember what I thought about it when I first heard it, I didn’t love it but I remember listening to it many times so I’m guessing I didn’t hate it either. I used to listen to it a few times while making Pokemon Decks for the Pokemon league on friday nights. Funnily enough I don’t remember thinking it was a particularly heavy album and this was one of my first exposures to metal. My friend eventually moved without warning so he never gave me back my album and I got to keep this one, my only problem when I was older is that it was an edited CD and the only edited version of the CD that I ever owned.
