BlessTheFall – You Wear A Crown But You’re No King (Music Video Review)


Artists: Blessthefall

Track: You Wear A Crown But You’re No King

Album: Hollow Bodies

Record Label: Fearless Records

Directed By: Brad Golowin


This track, taken from one of their heaviest albums yet, has caught my attention since Fearless released the lyric video for it. Shortly following the albums release, Fearless Records drops a new music video for the single “You Wear A Crown But You’re No King”

The soft mysterious beginning of this video keeps you at the edge of your chair with the building suspense leading up to the actual song. The video’s setting is from the looks, in the middle of the woods, with the ground of fire, and flames rising from behind the performing artists. The cool part is, the fire is timed up with the guitars. From time to time as the song progresses the video will cut to scenes of Beau chopping wood and gathering wood for a fire. As the song continues on with it’s heavy verses heading into the second chorus; You witness Bokan trying to light the fire, and well… You’ll have to watch it to find out what happens!

Beau was quoted on describing the making of the video:
“This video was definitely the most dangerous thing we’ve ever done as a band,  We had three cannons literally shooting flames 30 feet into the air and about 50 burning logs all around us. The entire fire department was there watching the whole thing with hoses ready, not to mention they had a medi-vac helicopter on call in case anyone was severely injured. I did actually light my arm on fire, it was the coolest (and the hottest) moment of my life. We were about 45 minutes from Houston in the middle of absolutely nowhere and filmed until 5AM. We party.”

In conclusion to this review, Blessthefall took it up a notch with their newest album. This music video held many elements to a great music video, such as, creativity, intensity, suspenseful, and a very well directed and unique, and a story line related to the concept of the entire album, it has been a video that has been played many times on my devices!
