That was awesome!!! I loved when Megatron transformed with that Assassin's Creed hood! Oh yeah!

Is it just me, or does this song sound like it's actually referring to the audience? When I first heard it, I thought they chose this song because Bay wanted "redemption" for making ROTF (which I don't think is necessary at all) so, the lyrics to the song say to take all the frustration and the sadness and let it go. And keep an open mind about DOTM, because it will be different. That's what I got from the song.

Thanks for the Credits and for putting a more "polished" presentation on the information. I guess I was still a little bit (o.k. a LOT) jazzed up about the release and was less than professional in how I brought the information across. :P

Fianlly worked, Megatron looks great with the cowl, and his transformation looks slow and painful!

Sentinel looks fantastic. Megatron...pitiful. I actually felt pity for him. Song...not my cup of tea

OMG just saw the video and i have to admit megatron's transformation looked badass the way he just pull the assassin looking hood over his head right after transforming.. and bee seemed very sad. is it me or did it look as if bee was punching a con in one part just before he looked up at something.

See? That IS a shotgun on Megatron's back! And he looks ready to kill! I like that he's not the typical, all mighty Megatron in this movie. He's more of an oppressed, in hiding bad guy. That is awesome.

NO!!!!!!!!! :BANG_HEAD:

The song is so good... but the eyes... oh the eyes... they really creep me out, and what's with the bulldog?

BTW, Megatron, Shockwave, and Sentinel moving CGI FTW!

*EDIT: If I ignore the creepy, washed out eyes, it's actually a really good video. Love the song BTW.

I personally think Waiting For The End or the The Requiem/The Radiance/Burning In The Skies trifecta would be better, but whatever.

I LOVE Megatron's cape.

If 'Waiting' had lyrics that were more relevant to the general tone of the movie, I would LOVE to have had a song of that tempo in place of 'Iridescent'. Waiting for the End is probably my favorite track off their new album.
Your idea for 'Requiem/Radiance/Burning', that would make for some Kick-A** background music in some of the scenes if the movie follows anywhere close to the novel, especially in the latter part of the Chicago battle. I don't know why I didn't think of that before. Now I'm going to have to re-read the novel with LP playing in the background. :P

Noisecreep has posted an exclusive behind the scenes look at the making of Linkin Park's new video for "Iridescent" on the Transformers: Dark Of The Moon soundtrack. Take a look at the thought and energy that went into the making of this artfully constructed video. You can see the video on the Noisecreep website here.

Noisecreep wrote:"The video explores how human existence might be affected by the elements of Transformers robots and the threat of the Decepticons," Linkin Park turntablist Joe Hahn, who directed the video, told Noisecreep. "What would it be like to be citizens in a decaying universe? I tried a lot of new things here, and we had a lot of fun shooting it."
