Kvelertak Conjure Up Animated Music Video for ‘Evig Vandrar’
Norwegian hardcore / metal act Kvelertak have just released a new music video for ‘Evig Vandrar.’ This isn’t just another band-in-a-wearhouse type of video. The guys instead sought to unveil a unique companion piece for ‘Evig Vandrar’ in the form of a captivating animated clip.
Animated videos have been pretty prominent as of late, with perhaps the most essential examples being the four brilliant animated shorts Queens of the Stone Age released this year for various ‘…Like Clockwork’ tracks. For Kvelertak’s ‘Evig Vandrar,’ which is Norwegian for ‘Eternal Youth,’ the video explores a desert scape filled with menacing alien creatures.
The color pallet showcased in ‘Evig Vandrar’ is no less than radiant as a lone being walks through a world of desert dunes. The protagonist drags behind him some sort of contraption while the video clip cuts back and forth from an orange scene to a blue scene; possibly going from day to night. Similar plot lines flow through each realm and the video’s main character, who’s face remains unobscured, faces different acts of destruction. We won’t give away the ending, so you’ll have to check it out for yourself.
‘Evig Vandrar’ is the fifth track on Kvelertak’s sophomore album, ‘Meir,’ which was produced by Converge guitarist Kurt Ballou.
