I love black metal. Seriously. The new Deathspell Omega’s been blowing me away as of late. The new Nachtmystium. But there are some bands that take themselves way too seriously.
Meet Danish black metal act Blodarv. Prior to today, I was unaware of their existence. The video that follows at the end of this post must be shared, though.
It’s for a song called “I Blaek Og Blod,” which translated means “In Ink and Blood.” It was filmed in Hammerknuden, among the evocative ruins of Hammershus on the island of Bornholm, where the band originates and where its founder Hugin lives.
This video is so fucking cheesy, it’s hilarious. And really, after watching it, I must visit the ruins if I ever have a honeymoon.
Black metal bands don’t make videos. Not real ones, anyways.
Tell me this video isn’t hysterical. I love it, don’t get me wrong. But I love it because it’s so cheesy.
