Just in time for the New Year, the southern German hard rock/heavy metallers OIL cause a stir with a live video. With bare torsos, under rusty-oily stage lights, the power trio, which released their first concert film just last year on Amazon Prime Video, burns off virtuoso heavy metal fireworks of the finest – including pyrotechnics, of course. Impressive: a blind guitar solo by frontman Gert Endres, who puts on a welding mask for the solo. The video is part of the film recording for the online music festival “WeLive”, which was awarded the nationwide German Rock & Pop Award for its high film quality only in December. OIL was on stage at “WeLive” as a headliner. Due to the measures against the corona virus, the performance took place without an audience.
For OIL, the film shot with 10 cameras was already the second concert film production. Already in 2019, the band released the from critics highly recommended concert film “OIL – Live in Concert” on the streaming provider Amazon Prime Video.
