Black metal masters Skald In Veum are premiering the new music video for “Drunk with Tainted Blood” today on HM. The Swedish band formed in 2013, but recently released their first EP, 1260 Days, through Rottweiler Records on Oct. 30. Guitarist and drummer Resh wrote in to HM to talk about the process behind making the video for the track:

“Karl Walfridsson (vocalist) in Pantokrator asked us to write a song to some TGO OTA (The Golden Order of the Almighty) related lyrical content. We agreed and, after it was finished, we asked him if he knew a way to make a video that would show — yet not reveal — the members of Skald In Veum. He thought about it and sent us a request for what kind of raw material he needed from us to get it done. This is the result.”

If you like what you hear, you can grab the EP from iTunes.

Here: A quick look back at the magazine's 35-year history with Van Pelt and new owner, David Stagg.
