As far as 'live' music videos go- this is a lame ass video. Very little crowd interaction bad lighting jerky camera and virtually no change in perspective. That being said its the only bad thing about Craig Mabbits new 'side' project Dead Rabbits. The Escape The Fate frontman (who took over for the rogue Ronnie Radke when he went to the clink) proves his chops in this latest tune "Edge of Reality".
It is rare and wonderful when a singer has proper clean vocals in a hardcore band. Often the pitch is just too high bordering on the same tone you get when you kick a guy in the nads. Not the case with Mabbit who actually has a beautiful singing voice. Once his hardcore days are over and his growl is gravel lets hope that he has some of this sound left in him to head in to a more mainstream rock sound.
Although I am a fan of Escape The Fate I cant seem to feel a bit more intimate and casual vibe with the Rabbits. A nice cohesive sound without the strut. Having met Craig on a few occasions it appears to me that the Dead Rabbits are a better reflection of his personality. More playful more animated, than fronting ETF.
Back to the video- yeah its lame but then again there are moments (such as the cheek to cheek harmony at about 1 minute 20) that save the day and save the view. Otherwise just leave the tune running in the background its really that good to stand alone.
