Norwegian black n’ roll band KVELERTAK has dropped a new music video for their track “Morild,” directed by Fredrik S. Hana. The song is featured on their recent album, “Endling,” which was released in early September.
The group shared their thoughts on the video:
“‘Morild is the 4th music video director Fredrik S. Hana has made for us. It exists somewhere between a music video and a short film, and it took over 6 month shooting the thing, painstakingly making everything by hand, from stop-motion animation to miniature work and practical effects.”
Tells guitarist Vidar Landa:
“You can watch Morild as one continuous explosive journey of visual eye candy, as not one single frame is repeated, bathed in Fredrik‘s beautiful, dark, and violent imagery inspired by Kvelertak‘s music. Or look for and interpret the lyrical themes surrounding our newest album Endling: man vs. nature, local folklore, greed, and the inevitable death of everything we know.”
“Morild marks my fourth music video for Kvelertak, starting all the way back with ‘Mjød‘ in 2010, followed by ‘Månelyst‘ in 2013, and ‘1985‘ in 2016. I truly cherish this collaboration and the creative space they offer.
It inspires me to aim high and push boundaries. With this Morild, which exists somewhere between a music video and a short film, I wanted to give it my all. We spent over six months shooting the thing, painstakingly making everything by hand, from stop-motion animation to miniature work and practical effects. I hope the Kvelertak fans get a kick out of it and can appreciate the love (and blood and tears) we put into it.”
