No, I haven’t branched out my hustling to the point of making metal lyric videos just yet. But I have a talented pal who can do it. Here are my thoughts on what makes good and not so good lyric videos, and what you think about when you order one. You can also check out some samples, so you know what you can expect if you hire my friend.

General thoughts on lyric videos

Lyric videos are a good way to promote your music on social platforms like YouTube, Facebook and Instagram. But to truly represent your music visually, they needs to be good. That’s why you shouldn’t just hire anyone, no matter how big or small your budget is. Do your research, listen to word-of-mouth, and check out the portfolio of previous videos. If everything checks out, you’re probably on the way to finding the right video maker.

What makes a good metal lyric video?

According to me, these are some important factors in making a great lyric video:

  • Professional material and editing
  • Representing the band’s music and imagery
  • Being able to use both animated and filmed content
  • Employing creative touches like effects, without overdoing it
  • Good understanding of the client’s wishes and good communication (goes both ways)

As I implied in the last point, the musician also has some responsibility. The amount and quality of source material and your brief has a huge impact on the end product. You can’t expect a great lyric video from nothing – or at least it won’t be as good without you making an effort.
