First music video shot by Samsung Galaxy S4 released
Guitarist Janne Seppänen said that the band started shooting as soon as they got the phone. He said that the entire band was surprised by the quality of the video shot using the phone. We've heard of videos and movies shot using an Apple iPhone, so using a phone instead of a dedicated camera is not new. What is new is that the Samsung Galaxy S4 was released just a few days ago. It also is interesting that the Finnish based band decided on using the Samsung handset instead of the Windows Phone 8 powered Nokia Lumia 920 manufactured by Finnish based Nokia.
As far as the band itself is concerned, the quintet is known for "their peculiar and original escapades which sets the band strongly apart from the grey masses." The single and album is on Palokka Records, and we should see some more releases in advance of the album's release.

err phone camera never compared to a normal camera for a music video, it looks grainy.

"Janne Seppänen 'siad'..." Alan, you make it sound like the guy has 3 names.
So Constantine loves Android...'ConstantDroid' someone wants to use that name? Lol.

I think that the dyslexic response occured from watching the video too many times. Thanks!

Hahahaha....i feel sorry for samsung! if you want to make music videos from mobile phones, then you should only use 808...see it for yourself

Could always buy a camera stabilizer and make any phone/camera look like butter with stabilization.

I have not seen a single person uses Nokia 808. How can you film something that people you don't even want to buy including you.

Awesome sound, bit like Teramaze jacked up to a higher level.

I don't think the music was recorded from the S4...just the video.
17. Aeires (unregistered)
Figured as much also, but it does rock.
23. Nathan_ingx (Posts: 3024; Member since: 07 Mar 2012)
Fine, the music is recorded with the S4...happy now? Sheesh!

I was referring to the band sounding great, if you want to have an attitude about it, take it somewhere else.

not even full HD
just a stupid joke, and perfect oppertunity for Samsung haters to write hate comments in this article
yeah as you can see I'm getting sick of it -_-
18. Nathan_ingx (Posts: 3024; Member since: 07 Mar 2012)
Samsung fans even hate Samsung S4's result? That's a first.
20. ebubekir26 (Posts: 312; Member since: 21 Dec 2012)
what ? no :D
I mean the video is stupid, not the Galaxy S4
it's not 1080p... and you clearly want to make me look stupid. *fail
33. Nathan_ingx (Posts: 3024; Member since: 07 Mar 2012)
Because you people think the worst of every comment which doesn't support Samsung...i had to say something!!
Look at your comment...that's negative thought!!
37. chaoticrazor (Posts: 2347; Member since: 28 Aug 2012)
you wont get through to them, they see anything that isnt 100% support for samsung as a slap in the face
its impossible to have any real discussion when these type of people are so closed minded

Still can tell that this was shot using a phone. Mainly because when there is a major contrast, such as the guitar and the background, you can see "noise" in the background.
I take it that no one watched the entire video? Watch until about 3:45, when they all get masks on.

I love Samsung + Android, but Lumia 920 could do it better.
28. doubler86 (Posts: 320; Member since: 26 Jan 2011)
It looks a lot better than the one show with the HTC

I thought it was in bad taste. Saying that we are all animals and then showing a face of Steve Jobs. Yet their song is Verse, Chorus, Verse, Chorus, Bridge, Chorus. They also look like standard Metal Heads. Steve Jobs was a marketing genius and he truly understood how to sell to Americans. Maybe if these guys grew up a little they'd be able to think outside the box with their metal music. Obviously Steve did. These guys look more like sheep in this video than your average Apple user.

It;s funny cuz I have a Nokia 920 and it never works. Reboots randomly, people say they can never hear me and phone turns off and wont come back on unless I hold the power button for 5 minutes. Funny thing when I get to power it on it shows its half charged....
34. lubba (Posts: 1311; Member since: 17 Jan 2011)
Obviously they were paid by Samsung, just like Samsung paid schmucks to bash HTC. Why a video by a finish band. Pretty ironic.
35. lubba (Posts: 1311; Member since: 17 Jan 2011)
@YaBoiDre10... How do you use a phone that never works?
40. YaBoiDre10 (Posts: 84; Member since: 15 Nov 2012)
It's my work phone. It's so horrible I'm begging for that HTC Facebook phone.
42. chaoticrazor (Posts: 2347; Member since: 28 Aug 2012)
sure it is, and let me guess the build quality is bad too.....what else do you trolls says ...errr ohh yeah and theres no apps
seriously its obvious your slating a device for no reason other then been a fanboy...i just hope your getting paid for your b.s
44. YaBoiDre10 (Posts: 84; Member since: 15 Nov 2012)
Im a fan boy lol. The phone never works. What do u expect me to say? It would be a GREAT phone if it worked and if the camera was better.
41. lubba (Posts: 1311; Member since: 17 Jan 2011)
Either the camera man got very good steady hands or the image stabilization is that good. Plus the audio is beyond good. Should I believe this video was all done naturally on the GS4? I'm inclined to say no. After all, Samsung is a well know cunning mobile company.
43. lubba (Posts: 1311; Member since: 17 Jan 2011)
@YaBoiDre10... So you use a broken work phone for work. Now that's bad business.
45. AlMal (Posts: 29; Member since: 29 Mar 2013)
Not bad at all. The music though is for heavy metal guys.
