VINTERSEA: New video too sexy for facebook?

Yesterday, May 22nd, female-fronted independent melodic metal band Vintersea released the second music video from their debut album, “The Gravity of Fall”, following a very successful debut in June of last year. The provocative and seductive new clip entitled “The Host”, quickly spread, mostly through word-of-mouth and shares within metal groups, garnering over 25,000 organic plays on Facebook within the first few hours.

Soon thereafter, Facebook’s censors prevented Vintersea from advertising their new music clip on the grounds of sensuality and partial nudity on the part of frontwoman Avienne. We feel that Vintersea is a great fit for your website, and clearly this new clip is turning a lot of heads!


Video produced, directed, and edited by Karl Whinnery of Hotkarlproductions.

Guitarist Riley Nix had this to say about the Facebook controversy:

” “The Host”, our newest music video, is a bit of a departure from what we usually do. Whereas we typically focus on the natural beauty of the world around us, “The Host” is a much more introspective, claustrophobic, and a human take on our style. While we knew that the video would be a raw and provocative, we never intended to create such a controversy. Ultimately, Facebook isn’t applying their rules equitably. They allow action films, bikini companies, and pop music acts to post and promote extremely raunchy and sexualized material, but they crack down on a female-fronted metal band for plot-related sensuality no worse than you might see walking down the street. All we want is to share out work with the world, and thankfully the metal scene has come to our aid in a really inspiring way.”
