So I think this is the official video for the song and I rather enjoyed it. It was different and brought up that primal feeling. Hope everyone enjoys.

The revelations trailer should be the new official video for the song!

I like the song. It is pretty epic! http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Honestly, I like this video just about as much as the AC trailer.

And yes, I know, that statement is border line blasphemy but I stand by it http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

The more I watch this video, the more I love it. It's film noir. I love Primal instinct of the dog. You can see it in his eyes, there is no thought only the task at hand. Then the nobility of the horse and sharpness of the owl. Not too mention the emotions and actions of the people. It's primal. Just an absolutely EPIC video. Oh, and the song of course.

LOve this song. It's so epic and always makes you feel like waht you're doing has purpose. For instance, just the other day while mowing my lawn i was listening to this song and I just kept saying to myself, "Let's f***in' go."

They could not have possibly picked a better song. Ubisoft is usually pretty good at the music aspect of things.

Youtube gave me the ACR trailer as an ad before this so I got to listen to it twice. I am a happy camper now http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/partyhat.gif

Ubisoft is the only Dev that would choose such relatively unknown music for their trailers. And I love them for it.

i have to disagree entirely, for the trailers only though. every song they've picked for trailers has made my brain grind. but luckily al gore graced us with a mute button when he invented the internet.

That's wierd. I just posted something talking about Al Gore inventing the internet not a minute ago... I think something big might happen with Al Gore soon... http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_rolleyes.gif

I disagree back http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif, I've liked all the music so far. Though this one is by far, the best yet.

Ok so I just happened upon a little tid bit of info on Woodkid and apparently he is a film director and he did his video. Pretty impressive I say. The info I found is in a comment here (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0VdiPaH-tb8&feature=related). The video is Iron live.

I haven't been impressed with the music used in some of the promotional trailers for AC--those UNKLE songs just didn't really do it for me. But this one was an exception. If I had the change I'd download it from iTunes.

Am I the only one who hates the trailer music? It doesn't fit at all with the mood or action of the video and comes off as a poorly made fan trailer. Here's what you do instead:

1. Open up the AC:R E3 trailer (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4K39UWxdm0U) and pause it at 0:23.
2. Mute the video and open E.S. Posthumus' Pompeii (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GusLypfx7OQ) (don't mute it).
3. Play both videos simultaneously.
4. Soil yourself.

Oh, chanting monks. No, that doesn't come off as a poorly made fan video at all. /sarcasm

The lyrics and sound of the song fit perfectly with Ezio travelling to new areas.

You all suck. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/shady.gif

I'd really prefer it if Ubisoft got Jesper Kyd to compose original music for the trailers that suit the atmosphere better, since this approach comes off as a bit lazy (as did the last AC game http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_razz.gif). As I've said elsewhere in regards to using other artists' music in AC trailers:

I would agree with that if it wasn't something that myself and, I would imagine, most others had never heard of before. I thought the song was great and fit very well. But hey, to each their own I guess.
