WINTERUS: ALMOST AS GOOD AS ABIGAIL WILLIAMS
Michigan’s Winterus play black metal, because, as we all know, the best black metal ever created comes from Michigan. And now they’ve debuted their video for the song “Harmonious” on Metal Injection, and the clip is almost as exciting and innovative as the music. (And, by the way, there is something very, very funny about a black metal band naming a song “Harmonious,” as opposed to whatever’s Latin for “Let’s Burn a Church and Crucify Jesus… Again.”) I mean, don’t watch it if you get motion sickness easily, because it shakes a lot. Because when you think of harmony, you think of extreme tremors.
My favorite part is a shot of the drum riser that seems to have occurred because the cameraman couldn’t find any members of the band to focus on just then. To his credit, though, I guess that means he was actually looking through the viewfinder at the sacrifice of his peripheral vision, so, y’know, bravo for that.
“Harmonius” comes from Winterus’ new album, In Carbon Mysticism, which is out today on Lifeforce.
