While AI can be used to reconstruct the vocals of artists who have passed away, the technology can also be used to create surreal music videos. Alongside videos created by fans, bands such as Meshuggah and Cattle Decapitation have made psychedelic videos using AI technology.

More recently, Type O Negative has released their own AI-generated music video, specifically for their song “Halloween In Heaven” (a track from their 2007 album Dead Again).

Throughout the “Halloween In Heaven” AI music video, there is an abundance of captivating and chilling imagery, perfect for Type O Negative fans who also happen to be horror buffs. But alongside these visuals, the music video also provides some other intriguing surprises.

While making this video, AI was instructed to recreate the likeness of several legendary musicians who have passed away, all of who appear throughout “Halloween In Heaven.” Per the description associated with this AI music video:

“Immerse yourself in the ethereal realm of ‘Halloween in Heaven’ as A.I. breathes new life into the track.

“Written by the band for their friend Dimebag Darrell, the video features Dimebag alongside John Bonham, John Entwistle, Bon Scott, Randy Rhoads, Jimi Hendrix, John Lennon, George Harrison, Jim Morrison, Elvis and the Green Man himself, Peter Steele.

“Fans of the band will also spot a cameo from collaborator and friend of the band, Tara VanFlower (LYCIA).”

The AI-generated video for “Halloween In Heaven” is nothing short of a surreal experience. You can check out the music video for yourself below.
