Among the plethora of metal songs to receive the AI music video treatment, the music video for Black Sabbath‘s “War Pigs” sure is fascinating to watch!

“War Pigs” is a Black Sabbath song off of the band’s 1970 album Paranoid; while the lyrical subject matter of the song explores such topics as that of witches and the occult, many folks feel that the track is an anti-war song. What is intriguing about this AI-generated music video is that both of these concepts make their way into the video; the imagery associated with this video features witches, as well as visuals that may project a plethora of political vibes.

On top of all that – as we have come to expect with many of these music videos – the visual presentation is surreal as hell. We have been really enjoying all these different creations, and upon watching the AI-generated music video for Black Sabbath’s “War Pigs,” we were absolutely blown away!

When it comes to other Black Sabbath-related stories, did you know that the band took offense to being labeled a heavy metal band? Among the comments expressed by the band regarding that label, guitarist Tony Iommi shared  “We called it heavy rock. The term heavy metal came about from a journalist when I came back from America in the ’70s. He said ‘you’re playing heavy metal’ and I said ‘no, it’s heavy rock — what’s that?”
