"Labyrinth" is the third single from German neue Deutsche härte group Oomph!'s tenth album Monster.

Music video[edit]

The video was released on August 12, 2008, first on German music station VIVA, and subsequently on their MySpace page.[1]

The video features a little girl lost in industrial building, running away from various grotesque characters she encounters, resembling the English novel Alice's Adventures in Wonderland. Within the video, she crosses Dero, dressed in a top-hat and suit (presumably as the Mad Hatter), a menacing looking anthropomorphic rabbit in a BDSM collar and leash, an old woman with sharpened teeth who is drinking blood (the Queen of Hearts), and Crap and Flux. She runs away after seeing the blood and tries to escape through a mirror. She is then caught by Dero, who wraps her in a red fabric, but the girl escapes using the scissors she picked up at the beginning of the video. As she runs into another room, she encounters a double of herself, but with white hair and glowing eyes, painting white roses red. Frightened by this sight, the girl continues to run, dropping the scissors. Her double then cuts one of the painted rosebuds off with the scissors, letting it hit the floor in a red splash. By the end of the video, the distressed girl is revealed to be nothing more than a figment of Dero's imagination.

The making of the video was uploaded on Oomph!'s YouTube account on September 1, 2008.
