Swedish up-and-coming stoner rockers TIDAL WAVE team up with Invisible Oranges to present their black metal-inspired new video for “Pentagram” today! This epic and über-heavy new single is taken from their new album “The Lord Knows”, to be released this January 20th on Ripple Music.
About filming a black metal-themed video, drummer Rasmus Sundberg explains: “In Sweden, we have organizations called “studieförbund” that help bands with funding, rehearsal spaces and gigs. We were part of one of them, who had booked a lecture tour with members of Dimmu Borgir where they would simply talk about life as touring musicians. When the organization funders — who are super Christian — found out about this, they canceled the entire operation as they thought Dimmu Borgir would recruit young people into satanism. Some bookers, promoters and bands then started boycotting the ‘studieförbund’. And as a protest, we decided to write a song about Satan, dedicated to the funders and their orthodox and catholic churches.“
