The Black Satans
I just ran across a video of these guys on YouTube and had to share. This shit made me laugh my ass off. I love Black Metal as much or more than the next guy, depending on who that guy is, but you have to appreciate good comedy even at the expense of things you like. And hell, the music itself is pretty decent.
I’m just goin’ to copy and paste their MySpace bio for you: “The band called The Black Satans was born in the summer of 2005 when Klitors, Heijargh and Naamos were on a cruise ship. The guys got a glorious drunken idea to form a true Norwegian black metal band. Years went by, and the band hardly progressed at all. Later Masturbørg joined the band because of pity and he became the singing and dancing vocalist of The Black Satans. Still very little was done to advance the band. Then, in the late 2008 the Black Satans sold their souls to Timo Tolkki in order to get this piece of shit done. This is true Norwegian black metal from Finland. The Black Satans.”
I’ll just present you with these in the order that I found them myself. First we have The Mutilation of Christ. A nifty little black and white video set in some ruins and woods with plenty of smiles, and flames too! Definitely the happiest Black Metal video ever.
Next up is The Satanic Darkness. Again, I’m goin’ to give you their MySpace description: “This latest music video made by The Black Satans was shot in the mountains of wintery Norway during the darkest time of the year, except that it was in Finland and in midsummer. Nevertheless this is the evilest and blackest black metal music video ever made by The Black Satans.”
Our final offering is The Satan of Hell. Set in the snowy woods it features tiki torch headbanging, snowballs, tree humping and evil peek-a-boo. Not to mention the choreographed dance at around the 1:55 mark. That’s what I call TRVE KVLT!
