ENGAGE – Interviews with interesting characters
Talking to Charles Davis, from Metal Gamer and the Chizzle and Dizzle show.

Holy Thunder Force: Charles dares you not to air guitar to this one.

Rain of a Thousand Flames: This the one that has a nude woman in it, but Charles assures us, it is definitely the most ridiculous one they have made.

Magic of the Wizard’s Dream: Charles says it’s not that interesting of a music video, but it’s the one he mentioned that has Christopher Lee singing on it.
