 Glame Metal began inb the 1970's key bands include Kiss and Gun's and Roses
The Darkness - Christmas Time [LINK]
  • This video contains many intertextual references to other christmas music videos because it is in a log cabin in the snow this is an intertextual link to the Wham video [LINK]
  • Stereotypically to heavy metal the band are shown in one low angle long shot perfroming there intrments to signify their power and show off their instimental ability
  • However countertypically the band aren't dressed in black
Queen - 'Bohemian Rhapsody' [LINK]
  • In this video we see the stereotypical to heavy metal see low angle tracking shots of the band performing
  • We see cross fade shots of each band member perfroming around darnkness which we then see them in a group of four
  • We also see lots of flashing low key lighting and the mise en scene of large open silver jump suits is the convention of this genre
