This is a mashup video of Behemoth's Ov Fire And The Void and Lady GaGa - Bad Romance. It is my intent to bridge the gap between pop music fans and blackened death metal fans by uniting the visual styles of two figurehead artists. The transformative remix courtesy of Pallomember serves as the junction for two videos with remarkable visual subject matter, which blend very nicely in terms of theme and subtext.
Most fans of Lady Gaga or Behemoth would normally never give the other a second glance, but hopefully through this re-imagining, the viewer can appreciate elements they would not recognize otherwise.
It must be said that this post is in fair use as 1) the intention of copyright law to stimulate creativity for the enrichment and this work does not "supersede the objects" of the original for reasons of personal profit. This advances the progress of the arts through the addition of something new. 2) The work is transformative, the two videos in of themselves have a different context separately than when they are apart (Campbell v. Acuff-Rose Music Inc.1994) 3) there is no negative effect of this use on the potential markets for either party. it in fact promotes potentially new markets for each. 17 U.S.C. § 107 and as the original intent of "music video" is to promote the sale of the music and not for primary commercial means, and enough time has passed for the original videos to stand on their own merrits, remix should be embraced to capture secondary and tertiary audiences.
I hope you enjoyed this video, and if you are a fan of Behemoth, have gained some respect for gaga's affront to pop culture and simultaneous revival of the spirit of pop music and its nature of absurdity. If you are a Lady Gaga fan, i hope you have enjoyed Behemoth and give it a second thought before reacting negatively to this intricate and engaging genre.
