More video mayhem from Alternate Reality
Remember Alternate Reality, the Northeast Ohio metal band that topped Yahoo Music's list of the worst music videos of the year? Maybe you recall the story I wrote late last year on the video for "The King That Never Was," filmed earlier that year at Squire's Castle in Willoughby Hills?
Regardless, they're back in similar cheesy glory with a video for "Metal Coma." The followed their winning formula: filming at an unusual location -- in this case the famed Ohio State Reformatory in Mansfield -- and packing the video with babes.
According to a news release sent by Steve Delchin of Wickliffe, "The 'Metal Coma' video follows the tale of old school metalheads who are suffering from 'an acute overexposure to heavy metals' and are locked up in 'The Metal Sanitarium,' a sinister asylum run by Dr. Overkill and his staff of nurses.'
"As always," Delchin says in the release, "the goal of our videos is to entertain, and I'm extremely grateful to all the volunteer actors in the Cleveland area who gave up their Sunday afternoon in April to be part of our video shoot. The response was overwhelming."
Along with the other members of the band -- including Delchin's brother Bob, also of Wickliffe -- the video features musicians from Breaker, Destructor, Manimals, Eternal Legacy, Soulless, Venomin James, JJ Grim and Black Death.
For good measure, here's the band's more famous video:
