Kvelertak’s New Video is Gruesome as F*ck
My first reaction to Kvelertak’s new video for the song “Månelyst” (“Bright Moon”) was to think it’s really fucking gory, in an over-the-top slasher pic kind of way, which of course is fantastic. My second reaction was to think, “But what have all these killings got to do with one another?” Then I read director Fredrik Hana’s quote about the video and realized that the horror-style schizophrenia was kind of the point:
I wanted to make a video that didn’t have any repetitious elements. I wanted to get as far away as possible from the kind of videos that has two, maybe three unique elements on constant circulation. Also, I totally dig horror films, always have, so I wanted to make something that showed my unconditional love for the genre. Working with this particular band just makes me want to go all the way.
