TYPE O NEGATIVE Posts Creepy AI Music Video For "Halloween In Heaven"

The AI art phenomenon rolls on.

Type O Negative is now streaming their AI-heavy music video for "Halloween In Heaven". The video was created by Corrine Larre of Twisted Hooves Studio and features images of Dimebag Darrell, for whom the song was written, alongside John Bonham, John Entwistle, Bon Scott, Randy Rhoads, Jimi Hendrix, and way more.

Is it a cool video? Sure. I personally am still a little creeped out by the whole AI thing, but there are certainly fans of this art style out there. Is it also a little creepy to watch these fever-dream reimaginations of the dead go by? Absolutely.

"When Nuclear Blast asked me to make this video using artificial intelligence, I was eager to explore the thousand possibilities offered by this new technology," said Larre. "I ended up using a combination of two platforms: one that generated images and the other transforming said images into video.

"The lyrics left the field open to a lot of experimentation, leading to this universe both eerie and kitsch, which I hope pays homage to the band. The real challenge was the integration of legendary artists into this imagery. It's hard to explain to the A.I. the small details that make them unique as humans. In the end, hundreds, even thousands of iterations must have been made for this video!

"As an artist, I think it is necessary to remain humble when using artificial intelligence as the topic has quite rightly caused some ethical debate in the creative world. In my opinion, these creations should not be seen as artistic works in their own right, but as the first steps of a technology that will revolutionize audiovisual creation in the coming years."
