Kvelertak have released a 13-minute short film for Morild, directed by Fredrik S. Hana. The track features on the band’s recently released album Endling.
“Morild marks my fourth music video for Kvelertak, starting all the way back with Mjød in 2010, followed by Månelyst in 2013 and 1985 in 2016,” Hana explains. “I truly cherish this collaboration and the creative space they offer. It inspires me to aim high and push boundaries. With this ‘Morild’, which exists somewhere between a music video and a short film, I wanted to give it my all. We spent over 6 months shooting the thing, painstakingly making everything by hand, from stop-motion animation to miniature work and practical effects. I hope the Kvelertak fans get a kick out of it and can appreciate the love (and blood and tears) we put into it.”
“You can watch Morild as one continuous explosive journey of visual eye-candy, not one single frame is repeated, bathed in Fredrik’s beautiful, dark and violent imagery inspired by Kvelertak’s music,” adds guitarist Vidar Landa.“Or look for and interpret the lyrical themes surrounding our newest album ‘Endling’: man vs nature, local folklore, greed, and the inevitable death of everything we know. Enjoy!”
Endling is out now via Rise Records/Petroleum Records, available to stream or purchase HERE.
