Blodarv Releases New Music Video For "I Blaek Og Blod"

Danish black metallers Blodarv have released a music video for a track to appear on their upcoming fourth full-length album. The video for "I Blaek Og Blod," which translated means "In Ink and Blood," was filmed in Hammerknuden and among the evocative ruins of Hammershus on the island of Bornholm, where the band originates and where it's founder Hugin lives. Check out the video below.

The following press release was also issued about the band's history:

"Although 1999 may be the date when the very first demo, 'Murder in the Name of Satan' appeared, it's difficult to actually set an exact date for the birth of Blodarv, which was originally formed as a solo project by Hugin. It would be more accurate to say that Blodarv is the culmination of a period of musical development that Hugin underwent whilst playing in bands such as Skjold, Arantruth, and Essoupi. Over the years since then Blodarv has become a fully fledged recording and live band, but it still remains the physical incarnation of Hugin's imagination. Blodarv represents his deepest thoughts and emotions, bringing them to life through his music, but also through his poetry which becomes the band's lyrics. Like the storytellers of old he leads the listener on a disturbing journey through a dark, evil, demonic world, peopled by lost souls, witches and demons."

Commenting on the "I Blaek Og Blod" video and the upcoming album, which will be titled "Gâst," Hugin had this to say: "As always with BLODARV we have used both Danish and English lyrics on the album, and on this particular track the lyrics happen to be in Danish. "Gâst" itself contains material that is a lot darker than perhaps you would expect when you listen to "I Blaek Og Blod", so the track is definitely not representative of the entire album itself. Metaphorical speaking, it's just a chapter extracted from a complete book."
