  • Bible Black Fan Music Video

    OK, when the new album came out earlier this month, I think a lot of us were excited to learn that there was going to be a new music video. The first "single" was going to be Bible Black, and we were getting a video for that. Then we found out it was going to be animated. OK, I thought that could work. The last official music video by the band was the animated track "Get a Grip" from 1995's Forbidden, so it wouldn't have been the first time. It premiered on Eddie Trunk's VH1 show "That Metal Show", and wow, was that bad. If you haven't seen it, here is the official video for the song:

    Apparently, the fans weren't the only ones turned off by that. I read a quote online not long after the video came out from Tony Iommi himself who said the video was the only thing about the new project he wasn't happy with. He said this specifically. "I think it' bloody awful, to be honest. It looks like Casper the Ghost or something. We didn't have anything to do with it.. that was sort of just presented to us, really." Due to the overwhelming negative reaction, I decided to contact the company who made the thing. They're called "23d Films". I wrote them twice offering them a venue to tell their side of the story, and they never replied to me. If you look over their portfolio on their site, this video doesn't appear anywhere - I wonder if that's due to the reaction the video got or not.

    Anyway, while waiting for 23d to contact me back, I decided to hit up a Black Sabbath fan by the name of "Stephen King" (no not THAT one). Two years ago he produced the seriously badass fan made video for the track "Ear in the Wall" (which, if you haven't seen, you really should. Check it out here). Anyway, I told him about the official Bible Black video, and said he really should take another crack at it. He said he'd look into it, and this morning, I got word that he finished it. You need to look at this. While fan based, it definitely shows what can be done when someone is invested in the subject matter they're producing. This shows.

    Check it out below:

    Great video, actually. A hell of a lot better then the original. Also, I loved the band footage. It added another dimension to the video.

          They need to hire this guy for the next video. It's brillant, miles ahead of the official one !

            That was excellent. It really conveys the darkness of the song and doesn't make it seem like a joke like the original video does. Is there anyway possible that this can become the official video for it? I'm guessing HNH would enojoy the it as well.

              That's an awesome video! Even better than the Ear In The Wall one...This guy has some talent. I hope the band will like it, although it does seem that he used Live at the RCMH material which they might not like very much, but still an awesome video, million of times better than the "official" one.

                  Well, the Ear in the Wall one used footage that had Bill Ward in it, too. The band footage from the first one came from videos produced for the Heaven & Hell album. From a purely legal standpoint, he did the same thing in both, that wouldn't be any different. But at least this time the footage matches the current incarnation of the band better.

                      Not only that, the band was replaced by the Dio band, and Appice was suddenly replaced by Simon Wright for a back shot!

                        This video blows the official one out of the water. I mean if I would have to guess which of them was official I would have gone with Stephen's. Normally most music videos are rather cheesy or even bad, but this one was actually good and gave an extra dimension to the song.

                        Thumbs up!

                          Well I've just had to join the site cos I had to reply. Absolutely fantastic. Caught the essence of what the song is about. As for the live footage, of which is gonna be limited due to the fact that there is no 'proper' footage of the band playing this song, well it's fantastic too. Trying to sync up solos and vocals is very time consuming. And he's obviously worked on getting those drum fills and cymbals in too. Even professional video makers don't get that right sometimes. Which is really annoying.
                          Legal or not, the band won't care. They'll love it.
                          THIS IS A FANTASTIC JOB !!

                            I love the part near the end when the kid pics up the book, turns and his face morphs into a demon - excellent! I agree with Iconophere on the footage of the band - great job syncing up whatever footage was available to look like the parts of Bible Black.

                            Joe - please let us know when/if the band has any feedback on the video. They should really look further into letting this guy do some others. Imagine this guy with legit access to footage and resources?
