Sacred 2: RPG + German Fantasy Metal = Something?

This trailer for Sacred 2 is the most amazingly epic thing I've seen all day, and also the most tragic. It's not every day that you get to see an in-game music video for a German "Fantasy Metal" band that includes skeletons getting their heads knocked off, right? 

It's more like every three days.  

It's hard to keep track of all the things on my radar, so Sacred 2 has dipped out of focus recently. I have heard that it's got some promise, though, so I made a mental note to keep an eye on things. I have no idea whether the video I've just seen is a good or a bad sign, but it's a sign either way. A sign of something. 

I could do with a good Western RPG after the five traumatic minutes I spent with Two Worlds, so I'll add Sacred 2 to my sacred "list of things that may or may not disappoint me." Also, I should probably watch this video again ... just to make sure I didn't imagine it.
