Paradise, my ass!

For no reason other than that I am a big fan of Symphonic Heavy Metal and that Within Temptation is one of my favorite acts, here is the new Within Temptation video, featuring not only their usual singer Sharon den Adel but also some obscure Finnish woman called Tarja something or other.

The single is called “Paradise,” though it seems to depict a future which is anything but halcyon. So what’s it all about? The singers standing around singing idealistic lyrics while some chick goes about setting off a machine that turns the earth green after it has been reduced to a post-apocalyptic wasteland thanks to a future, and predictably disastrous, Hillary Clinton presidency, that would be my guess.
