Think of Belzebubs as the Gorillaz of metal: They’re a four-piece cartoon black metal band that hail from a webcomic of the same name. Late last week, they released a video for “Cathedrals of Mourning,” from their forthcoming album, Pantheon of the Nightside Gods.
In the animated video, the band rock out on a snow-capped mountain in Norway, their epic riffs triggering an avalanche and massive snow boulder which threatens to lay waste to a ski resort below.
JP Ahonen, who created the band and its webcomic three years ago, described the series as “a trve kvlt documentary revolving around two main themes: the daily lives of your average occult family—Sløth, Lucyfer, Lilith and Leviathan—and the sluggish evolution of Sløth’s black metal band, featuring Obesyx and Hubbath.”
Pantheon of the Nightside Gods arrives April 26 on Century Media Records. See the trve kvlt video here:
