To produce a good and interesting video for a metal band is not an easy task. However, some bands and producers try their hardest to come up with some visuals which will not fall into templates and will stand out from the crowd. I am rather picky in terms of music videos, as I think that the music should defend itself and most of the videos are just an unnecessary addition to create some attention. I picked, however, 10 music videos which definitely deserve all the attention they can get. Whether it is inventiveness, production or the general visual characteristics, those 10 belong to my favourite videos that were created in 2016.
Amon Amarth – First Kill

Anaal Nathrakh – We Will Fucking Kill You
