"This will be the most frostbitten thing since that video Immortal did."
"...The one with the hat?"
"No, the other one."
"....Errr.....The one where they're in that snowfield?"
"Yes."
"GRIM!"

8) Interviewer: "Immortal came with the first commercially available Black Metal video clips. I was surprised when I first saw these, due to the dark music, and images, which contrasted with the bright light of the Northern sky and daylight. Why use the contrast between darkness and light? Is there a significance?"

:evil: Demonaz: "Instead of making a totally boring, unoriginal video, we wrote a brilliant manus. The contrast between darkness and light worked out perfectly... The face of our band is strong. We have someting to offer... I believe the videos to be highly original, and outstanding, which is most important."

actually i think hes talking about their other videos in that quote. though the only other immortal vid ive seen was also amusing.

there is a story behind call of the wintermoon which also explains the poor production values...

Quote:
...the "black metal" movement in Norway had become hot news for media, and a TV-company in Bergen wanted the band to appear in an interview and to record a "black metal video". They approved, not knowing what a mistake it would be. Immortal chose to do a video of the track "Call Of The Wintermoon", recorded it within 2 (!) hours and appeared on the TV interview later that evening along with the broadcasting of the video. Abbath, Demonaz and Kolgrim explained their band's unique concept to the unappreciative TV-reporter, who only cared to ask whether they were Satanists or not. Demonaz stated that it wasn't the case, and that their music couldn't be labeled "black metal". Kolgrim proclaimed that Immortal played "holocaust metal", their very own style. Today, Immortal has abandoned the term, and prefers no label at all. Anyhow, the video turned out to be a real mess, not showing the right feeling of the song in any way. It was recorded in the dark woods (in the summer time!) and at the ruins of Lysekloster, where they shot the photos for the Diabolical Fullmoon Mysticism cover. Fortunately, the video wasn't released at all, only shown on television that specific night.


At least this is the official line :wink:

I have only seen 3 videos [a live one, wintermoon, and that one where they are in ths snow]
But I'm aware there is a godawful one where they are standing in the mountains with an invisible drummer.

Aaa I think the one on the hills is mighty raven dark. It's well funny when the music kicks in after the 'ambient' bit & Abbath starts running with his bass :lol:

I would say that it should be some sort of rule that black metal bands aren't allowed to even think about making videos. But then we'd be robbed of pure genius like this.

I loves Immortal, I does.

There is definately an unwritten law that BM videos have to be shit to the point of utter hilarity.

Anybody else seen Satyricon's video for Mother North. That has to be the stupidest thing I have ever seen. But it's not even funny/cool stupid. It really is just stupid stupid.

I dunno, man, I think they were trying too hard to be crap. Amusing, but not that great... the most funny ones are where they're trying to be serious. Like that Emperor video with Ihsahn in full armour, I can't ever watch that with a straight face. I'm sorry, I love Emperor and Ihsahn to bits, but he just looks like a twat. There's no other way to put it. 8)

Darkthrone are apparently making a video for their next album. I look forward to it. :P

Don't suppose you got a link to that Emperor vid? The Emperor video I saw was "Empty" and I must say that it was quite good. It let the music do the talking for most of it.
