The Swedish death metal band Pantokrator is celebrating International Listen to Pantokrator Day (not a joke, a holiday celebrated by their fans on May 6) today by dropping a new music video for “Awesome God.” The song is being released as a stand-alone single and is widely known and sung among Christians, the original made famous by the penman Rich Mullins.
Drummer Rickard Gustafsson spoke with HM about the first single:
“When we add all things to the equation of life we arrive at the indisputable conclusion that: Our God is a truly awesome God. This cover was recorded by request from a Slovakian friend, and the video was made (on an) impulse during Easter 2016.”
The band was formed in 1996, most recently releasing Incarnate in 2014. The band also rereleased Aurum in 2015.
