Norwegian Black Metallers SARKOM, whose fourth full-length album “Anti-Cosmic Art” was released on Dark Essence Records at the end of last year, have today revealed a video of a track from the album. Produced and directed by Andreas Luggen Martinussen , Edited by Kolbjørn Voll Hjelmerud and with music and lyrics by SARKOM founder and frontman E. Unsgaard, the video for the track “Seen through the eyes of a pedophile priest” can be seen here:
Dealing, without a doubt, about a controversial subject, Unsgaard had this to say about the track itself and the video:
“I got the idea for this song after seeing the documentary “Deliver Us From Evil”. Pedophilia is something most people despise and don’t want to talk about, but it’s a deadly serious theme as these predators actually live amongst us. I did some research and the lyrics are based on how I would interpret the mind and thoughts of a pedophile. As for the video itself, it turned out pretty much as I had envisioned it, and I am very satisfied with the result. More so because it gave us the chance to work with a professional team with extensive experience gained in TV production. They also seemed to enjoy doing something different, as working on this kind of music/video project was something new to them. I mean, the last TV production they worked on was “Paradise Hotel”…
SARKOM is set to appear at Inferno Festival in Oslo for the Dark Essence Label night which will take place at Blå on Wednesday 12th April. For their appearance the band will play a special set which will include songs that have rarely, or never, been played live. Additionally, the set will feature a guest appearance from BEASTCRAFT’s Sorath Northgrove.
Other Dark Essence Records bands scheduled for the event are SLEGEST, HAIL SPIRIT NOIR and SULPHUR.
SARKOM will also be appearing at the Dark Easter Metal Meeting in Munich, Germany, on the 15th April.
