Danish Black Metallers BLODSARV have released a video for “A Snowy Night In November”,a track from their newly released album “Gâst”. The video was filmed during January of this year in the Northland region of Bornholm, the island home of founder and frontman Hugin, and features appearances from BLODARV members Satinae Ma (clean vocals) and Pestilens (lead guitars), as well as Hugin himself. “A Snowy Night In November” can be seen on the band’s YouTube channel at http://youtu.be/9Y9CRabYO8Q
“Gâst”, which is the band’s fourth full-length album, was released on Self Mutilation Services at the end of last year, and, like all of BLODARV’s releases, contains a mix of tracks in both Danish and English. Drawing his inspiration from the myths and legends and rich history of Bornholm, Hugin’s lyrics take the listener on a journey through a world inhabited by powerful demons, haunted souls and tragic destinies.The title, “Gâst”, is in the Bornholmsk (Burgundian) dialect and refers to a type of a ghost demon or energy which has the ability to possess mortals and inspire in much the same way as a muse.
BLODARV recently expanded its lineup with the addition of Fjorgynn on drums and HUUL on live session bass. The band is pretty much self-sufficient when it comes to recording both albums and videos as well as producing artwork, with all the work being done at Hugin’s purpose-built Hammer and Art Studios, which also provides a multitude of services for bands wanting to record in the spectacular settings that the island of Bornholm provides.
