Norwegian blackened thrash act Susperia is premiering their newest video starting today. The Oslo-based five-piece posted the video for the song “Character Flaw,” which can be viewed below.

The Daniel William Bones directed performance video continues the band’s use of apocalyptic imagery, as featured on their latest album “Attitude,” and celebrates the return to action of vocalist Athera, who was sidelined earlier this year from a near-fatal heart attack that stemmed from a previously undiagnosed heart defect, according to the band’s publicist, EarSplit PR.

Released May 19, 2009, “Attitude” was recorded in Norway and mixed at Studio Fredman in Sweden. The album features guest appearances by Chuck Billy (Testament) and Shagrath (Dimmu Borgir). The band’s fifth full-length album entered the official Norwegian charts at 28, the band’s highest placement to date.

"Ten years and still the same five guys," exclaims vocalist Athera with regards to the band’s long commitment to their music.

Working for the first time worldwide with Candlelight Records (previous albums only saw release by the label in the US), bassist Memnock notes, "We now have the backing of one label worldwide and this is going to make life a lot easier for us. And we hope that finally we get to play to our American fans."

Susperia recently completed a run of Norwegian dates; the shows followed the band’s appearance at Norway’s Steinkjer Festival which served as the return of Athera to the stage.

Commenting just prior to the June festival, Athera noted, "I can't wait to get back on the road again. It's something that at one point I thought I would never experience again, so I'm grabbing this opportunity with both hands."

The band, rounded out by guitarists Cyrus and Elvorn, and drummer Tjodalv, perform next at Hard Rock Hell III festival in Prestatyn, UK on December 5.
