NSFW: New Pain Of Salvation Video Looks Oddly Familiar

Swedish prog-metal masters Pain Of Salvation have released a NSFW video for ‘Where It Hurts‘, which comes off their latest album, ‘Road Salt One‘. Watching the video, I was immediately struck by the feeling that I’d seen this video before. It didn’t take long at all to figure out which video I was thinking of (actually, it only took about a minute of watching ‘Where It Hurts‘). Check out the video below and the ‘original’ after the jump.

So, you’ve seen ‘Where It Hurts‘ now, right? Still not sure which video it’s reminiscent of? Well, watch below and draw your own comparisons.

Now, I love Pain of Salvation. I really do. Some of their songs can be a bit pretentious and over dramatic, but as a whole, they put out some astonishing, often gorgeous, material. That being said, this video is too close to ‘Ohrwurm’ for me to just pass it off as coincidence. Maybe Daniel Gildenlow is a huge Cephalic Carnage fan. After all, they say imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, right?
