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.

Heaven's Metal: An Oral History of the Genesis of Christian Metal

Heaven's Metal

When rock emerged from blues and 'heavy metal' began to surface, faith-based metal acts also rose to start their own journeys. Initially shunned by both believers and non-believers, they were fighting for their spot at the table, ultimately building a legacy that would go on to change the genre forever. HM presents an oral history of the beginning of Christian metal music, featuring Guardian, Tourniquet, Holy Soldier, Whitecross, and, of course, Stryper.
