Roadrunner Records group Kvelertak have released the official music video for “Svartmesse,” from their celebrated new LP NATTESFERD which arrived this past May. The video, which was directed by Torjus Førre Erfjord of Raindog Films, is streaming now at www.Kvelertak.com and on the band’s official YouTube channel.
The band commented on the videos creation stating, “It’s made by our good friend Torjus Førre Erfjord who has previously made the videos for “Blodtørst” and “Evig Vandrar.” As well as featuring his own unique style of animation, this video has a darker and more sinister tone that goes hand in hand with the lyrics of the song.”
